Do you run? Do you believe in the power of endurance and resilience?
I have met preppers from all walks of life and found that some people believe in this innate will to survive, which has the ability to overcome the restrictions of the body. It’s just not true. You can will yourself over a lot of hills but there will come a time when the stress gets the best of you and you cannot go on any longer. Take the time to strengthen your body as well as your mind.
How do you bounce back when all seems lost. In a collapse, you may experience this feeling all the time. What evolution and nature show us all the time is that survival is all about resilience and adaptation. Those who can master these two things will go on.
We are masters of adaptation and that is how we have come to rule this planet. Make no mistake about it, we rule this planet. We might destroy it because of that but we certainly rule the place. Your ability to change roles and adapt to situations will be key in an SHTF scenario.
Another way to remain vigilant and resilient is to spend some time alone thinking. When you spend time alone and think you often come out on the other side better for it. Isolation and thinking should not be discounted.
Strength in Numbers
Another big way of increasing your survival endurance is to lighten the load with more people. The more people you have in your community, group, mag, or whatever you call it, the easier the work will be.
Be sure you have numbers because you need to have solutions to these problems. Problems like hard work and security require bodies. There is not enough resilience or endurance to run security with people.
