The time is quickly approaching where you will have to make a decision about the technology in your life.
There has never been anything as intrusive as the technology in our lives. At the writing of this article, Apple has created a technology that can map any room the phone enters. This data can be beamed back to Apple and saved and all of your privacy goes along with it.
Facial recognition, data collection, and censorship are all reasons that people are pulling away from this world of high tech oversite. Sure, it’s nice to get some free stuff and have some fun on social media, there are consequences.
What are we losing that once made our society great? Let’s talk about doing 5 things the way Grandma did.
Talk to the Neighbors
The age of communicating with neighbors is all but dead in America. We rush home from work and .hide in our homes in front of Netflix. There was a time when people spent their evenings together. The time has long passed for this and it would seem that we are headed towards a dark time of isolation.
Mom Mom had it right!
Cook from Scratch
Grandma made it all from scratch from pies to dumplings and no one made it better! This from-scratch cooking skill was born of necessity. Because of convenience, we have lost this skill though it is the key to good health.
Keep a Paper Calendar
A paper calendar and to-do list is crucial to your success in day to day life. Have something you can hold and check off on as tasks are completed.
An all but dead art is that of sending letters. How special a day can be when you receive a handwritten letter from someone you love.
Keep a Photo Album
We have all the pictures this day and age but we stand to lose them all of the digital age comes to an end. Or if we lose that thumb drive. You need some real pictures in a photo album.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
