5 tips to get out of "survival mode" and start to thrive.

Getting out of survival mode

  • Cherish the positive influences around you - good friends, supportive colleagues, opportunities.

Lack of practical skills

Our modern job descriptions largely rely on our minds rather than our physical skills in order to get work done.
Having some basic practical skills to complement your “soft” skills will certainly come in handy in survival scenarios, particularly when it comes to rebuilding from catastrophe. And you can develop them by simply trying things out.

Practice self-reliance in advance

Not only will having DIY skills help you rebuild your community, they also greatly increase your self-reliance.
This means being able to take care of yourself and survive with little and work with what you have. But don't wait until you need to be self-reliant to cultivate these skills.
