We all tend to pay much attention to acquiring stuff – physical things – in order to be more prepared, but we often fail to prepare ourselves more, physically and mentally. You need to be preparing for the things that are most likely in your regular, everyday life. Then expect that you’ll be under immense pressure.
Everything is different when you’re under pressure but you can prepare yourself for this too.
There are many ways how we can prepare ourselves more, simple and fun things like hiking or camping are great to test some of your skills and gear too. A popular myth is that we have to be physically prepared only through more “macho” activities like martial arts or shooting at the range and similar.
