If you’re new to prepping or homesteading, there’s something you should know: You don’t have to learn everything at once! I don’t know how many times I’ve heard (or read) someone say that they were kind of interested in off-grid living, but it turned out to be way more complicated than they expected, so they quit.
It is complicated, but nothing worth doing isn’t. When you start college, you don’t look at the dozens of tests you’re going to have to take and decide to quit, do you? (I hope not.) No! Because you’ll have time to take the classes study the material before taking the tests.
It’s the same with prepping and homesteading. No one expects you to learn it all at once. Instead, do a little at a time. I recommend starting with things that you can easily incorporate into your daily life.
For example, if you’re looking for something fun to do with your family, go camping. And instead of heating up frozen meals, start cooking your own meals from scratch. Want to save money on your heating bill? Look for ways to stay warm without always having the heat on.
These are just a few examples of ways you can learn to be more self-reliant. In this article by Kris from Attainable Sustainable, you’ll learn 11 other ways to be more self-reliant, along with a couple reasons why learning these things is so important. Follow the link below to check it out.
