Once upon a time those who prepared themselves for a doomsday type scenario were mocked and joked about, but having seen the way that this pandemic has forced us all back home, they are the ones who are having the last laugh. In fact if you take a look at the Rising S company reviews, a business who specialize in underground bunkers, there are a lot of very intelligent people there who have proven to the world that they were in the right all the time.
The truth is that things are likely to get back to how things were in a few months, but for now it is important that we take the lessons that this pandemic has taught us, and remind ourselves about how easy it would be for something like this to take place again.
One of the very real lessons which we learned from this situation was the attitudes of the people in the main are not quite what many of us expected. There was absolutely no togetherness when the threat of a lockdown came and there was certainly no care for what the vulnerable in society would need, or indeed care for anyone else. We saw this in the panic buying which took place in grocery stores across the country, people going over the top to look after themselves and their families, and nobody else. This is why we should always ensure that we have a good stock of dry food and water, because when disaster hits, nobody will be helping you out.
Very few of us ever envisaged a time in our lives when we would be at home for such a long time and if a more severe pandemic were to come along then staying at home for even longer may be a very real possibility. This of course is worrying for many who just don’t have sufficient things at home to keep them entertained and to keep them occupied, which is not good for mental wellbeing. With this in mind what we can learn from this situation is that we need to have access in and out of the home, areas to get outside safely and plenty of space in the home to keep yourself busy.
From foods to medicine, exit plans to hideout shelters, the ultimate truth of what doomsday preppers can teach us and one that we should all learn from is to be prepared. Very few saw this pandemic coming and even less thought that it would result in what we have seen over the last couple of months. This therefore should be a warning for us all about the need to be prepared for many different scenarios.
Now there may not quite be the need to take things as far as some have regarding their preparations. But there is certainly something that we can all take from the attitudes and the approach which many doomsday preppers have.
