As more catastrophes seem to be accelerating more and more people are becoming convinced that the collapse of society is only a matter of time. The true survivalist can feel that they are ready for the chaos, but without actually experiencing these extreme adversities firsthand are they?

In the military soldiers are conditioned and trained beforehand and made to be as prepared as possible for the real hardships on and off the battlefield. The survivalist can to be more mentally and physically prepared for the falling apart of civilization that so many survivalists and the general public feels is inevitable.

Self reliance also has to do with being ready for the sudden loss of everything we all have become way too accustomed to. Experiencing a type of mock realism can get you more mentally prepared for when society starts to quickly disintegrate around you. The following 50 tips (suggestions) should help you, ‘the survivalist’ cope better when things do start to fall apart.

1. See what it is like to go without the utilities such as electricity by turning them off for at least a couple of hours.

2. Go at least 24 hours without electronic conveniences; no computer, no television, no cell phone, etc. This will be a wake up call for many.

3. The internet will not be there after many catastrophes, become use to receiving information from other sources such as books.

4. Spend some nights using only candles and or battery operated lights to illuminate the darkness.

5. Start storing rainwater and start watering your plants and garden with it.

6. Try cooking some of your meals using a solar oven, barbecue, fire pit, something not dependent on the electric or gas companies.

7. Flush the toilet for one day or more using only water you have previously stored, or use a portable toilet.

8. Instead of throwing away a piece of damaged clothing, try to repair it, sew it, then wear it again.

9. Take any household item and write down every creative way you can use it.

10. Find other means of some of your trash disposal, something else rather than the city or county trash pick up services.

11. Have a fake imaginary illness and fictionally treat that sickness with only what you have available to you in your home.

12. Gather your family and even your friends together that feel like you do, and see what it like for all of you to be confined to a smaller space.

13. Use ‘other” means of cooling or heating your home for a few days that is of course safe.

14. Actually walk or bicycle to run some of your errands other than using a motor vehicle.

15. Start spending some very quiet time alone. You may have to be alone after ‘it’ happens.

16. Try using alternative means of bathing occasionally, like using one of those solar showers, or heating water over a fire to be used to bathe with.

17. See what ingenious gadget made from junk you can think of to make hard times easier.

18. Try washing dishes and clothes on occasion without using the dishwasher or washing machine, dry clothes on a clothes line.

19. Experiment by trying to purify dirty polluted water, without drinking it, and see how clean you can get it.

20. Scavenger hunt. Take some time and collect everything, not hazardous, you find on the ground and ask yourself, what can I do and use what I have?

21. Take along a pad of paper and write down everything you see at a park or recreation area. Observation skills will help you stay alive better after chaos breaks loose.

22. Try to locate someplace off the beaten path using only a paper map, compass, or landmarks.

23. Spend some days outdoors when the weather is miserable (not dangerous), like raining all day long, you may have to live this way in the future.

24. See how fast you can get your essentials together and ready to leave.

25. Try omitting the “professional” weather forecasts and get one of the those pocket weather forecaster that goes by the clouds and wind direction and make your own weather forecasts.

26. If you plan to stay where you are, thoroughly become familiar with every street, landmark, trees, houses, etc. within 2 miles of your home, walk the area often.

27. For awhile see what it is like to have only enough water and food to sustain you, only rations for a day or two.

28. Safety test your physical limits by seeing how far you can walk with a backpack of supplies.

29. You could be confined to a small area around your home, write down everything outside within eyesight you may have to eat to survive.

30. Start saving up every spare part; screws, springs, nails, etc. and fix something only using what you have stored.

31. Get use to eating “safe” outdoor plants, berries, edibles and acquire a taste only for them. Outdoor food is there for the pickings, you just have to know where to look. Also take classes on identifying safe plants to eat.

32. Eat at least one or more meal each week made from food that has not been processed.

33. Attempt to get supplies for free. This is good for your scrounging skills.

34. Go to garage sales, flea markets and try to pay for things by trading rather than using money. Sharpening your barter skills.

35. Start a trading system with other survival minded people. These are wonderful ways to practice post apocalyptic commerce.

36. Without endangering your safety, learn the ways that local homeless people get by with what they have and can find.

37. Go to your local supermarket and make a mental map of the store and where you can go as quickly as possible to get what you need when panic buying starts.

38. Find places to rapidly hide your food and supplies that are not already hidden. Desperate people will expect you give them everything you have, or will just take it from you.

39. Put together a safe room and spend some serious time there, only coming out to go to the bathroom.

40. Drive, walk, travel beforehand all your planned “escape routes” and calculate times to reach each place.

41. Have supplies ready, such as plywood to board up windows, to secure yourself from intruders that will try to break in.

42. Establish, made a list of human leeches around you that will take and give nothing in return and regard them as threats to your survival supplies.

43. Those with small children and pets, train them to go to a safe area by command. Even most animals are smart enough to listen.

44. Federal, state, local danger drills are way too infrequent for your mind to take hold. Make your emergency drills a daily or 3 times a week event.

45. Depending on your location write down in great detail what you can expect in various disastrous situations. This helps to prepare dealing with worst case scenarios.

46. Practice staying calm and thinking straight, breathing exercises, anything to keep you as collected during emergency situations.

47. Spend some nights sleeping outside, this can be in your backyard, camping trips, whatever to prepare you for when you are stuck outside.

48. Instead of using electronic devices, made a habit of using a piece of paper and a pen or pencil to write down things that are important and not important.

49. To avoid total boredom with this does happen learn to play various card and classic board games, anything that can entertain you and your family and friends that does not plug in.

50. Become a master of learning human idiosyncrasies (mannerisms), facial expressions, movements. This is invaluable when dealing with irrational and probably unsafe people after a calamity occurs.

The truly “ready” survivalist should be training themselves to be prepared to undergo things that are going to be vastly different and very difficult to adjust to and handle. By using some or all of these 50 prep tips now and before the aftermath of “the nightmare” that is coming, you will be more adapt to handling it.
