The 30 Day Preparedness Challenge
A new year is upon us, and a time for people to begin thinking of changes they want to make in their lives.¬† Talking with friends and family about being prepared for a new year is a great¬†way to awaken the need for personal preparedness efforts, as well as a way¬†to help¬†friends or family members¬†see the need to become more¬†self reliant¬†in the process.¬† Suggest to family or friends to take a 30 day preparedness challenge by making¬†a a simple 30 day preparedness plan and create a preparedness kit that will ensure their safety and well being.¬† This is a great way to share your knowledge and tips with friends and family.¬† This challenge is not only for those that are unprepared.¬† Preppers can take the challenge as well.¬† For the next 30 days, do one thing daily that is preparedness related.¬† It could be bulking up the preparedness library, training or learning a different skill.¬† At the end of the 30 days, see how much¬†has been¬†achieved.¬† If the challenge is taken seriously, at the end of the month an unprepared¬†person should not only have a 30 day emergency supply, but could also have a 72 hour kit, as well as¬†a safety plan¬†and loads of preparedness knowledge they have accumulated from reading.
30 Day to¬†Preparedness
If you are helping a person become more prepared, remember to keep it simple.¬† Make this challenge easy for them to begin by being a motivator and knowledge source.¬† A great way to motivate a friend or family is not through fear, but through information.¬† Have the necessary information ready for them to easily begin to¬†prepare¬† (websites, print outs of tips, storage information, etc).¬† For an emergency foods shopping list, click here.¬† ¬†Also, express how easy it would be financially to create a 30 day reserve supply.¬† Moreover, adding an additional $5-$20 in the grocery store budget would create a lucrative supply of emergency food.¬†¬†¬†
Have suggested items printed out to help them easily begin their 30 day preparedness challenge.¬†¬† Make sure that they keep their basic needs in mind when beginning a preparedness kit.¬†
Prepping is Contagious
Habits form after 14 days; and the preparedness challenge is a habit that does not need to be broken.¬† By simply suggesting to your friends and family to take 30 days and focus on thier personal preparedness efforts, you are motivating them to become more¬†self reliant, helping them prepare for unforeseen disasters, and assisting them in creating a preparedness plan that will ensure their safety and well being.¬† You will be their guide in the beginning and help them along the way if they run into difficulty.¬† We, as preppers know the feeling of relief we had when our 2 week and 1 month preparedness efforts were in place.¬† Help them¬†achieve that same feeling of relief.
