Some Guidelines for a Hopeless Pessimist Anticipating for the Apocalypse

Call them pessimistic, or superstitious or paranoid, these people are now preparing for the end of the world, and if that time comes and they are still alive to see it, they will have the most advantage and the last laugh against those who do not believe this incident to come soon.

For you to be ready when Apocalypse comes, you have to be thinking ahead now and planning things accordingly. Read the following guidelines to help you in your preparations for the apocalypse and be the survivor when the world comes to an end.

Remember that the number one pointer you need to prepare for the end of the world is to have a plan. People think that the apocalypse could come in different ways, like zombies, political unrest, threats from foreign shores, and so on. The basis of your plan will depend on what you think is the most likely scenario, and thus you decide where to go, what things to bring, who will go with you or you go solo, and so forth. Involving people close to you in your plan would mean that they should be aware of your plans, get them involved so that everything is coordinated and they understand each other’s expectations.

Another important aspect of your planning for the apocalypse is to have on hand all supplies that are essential for your new existence. Note that life will not be easy after an apocalypse, like no hospitals, no electricity, nothing in the supermarket, and so on. Thus, essentials like food, gas, water, medical supplies and others should already be stocked up.

Together with your stocks of essential supplies, you are to prepare the appropriate gear needed in an apocalypse, and this is another tip to consider. Expect that there will be no electricity after the event of apocalypse, and so it is best to consider sources of fuel and energy during this time like a generator set, or torches, or batteries, and others. Things like axes, ropes, matches, and weapons would be better for your survival.

Mastering the art of independence is the next thing to be prepared of during an apocalypse in order to survive, especially we are used to being over-reliant on the present system. This would mean a lot of learning on your side to be able to look after yourself better, like learning how to grow your own food, and practice essential skills after the apocalypse like growing your own food, and knowing the essential skills of knot tying, fire lighting, self defense, hunting and others.

This experience will need you to have a mental battle to stay sane and have perseverance, especially you will not have the luxuries in the past like warm beds, enough nutrition, and possibly living alone without families and friends.
