Prepper Burn Out & Focus
Originally Titled “Avoiding Prepper Burn Out”
Host: Jack Spirko “The Survival Podcast”

Burn OutI have received a ton of comments and emails lately with the term “prepper burn out”, used in them.   The reality is much of this is seasonal, I am now going into my fourth Christmas season producing this show and I can tell you, “burn out” for many is part of the good old fashioned “winter blues”.  Hell the shorter days, cold nights and dampness make you down enough, thinking about the threats out there sure as hell doesn’t make things any brighter.

Yet the issue is real, it is also why I spend a ton of time on subjects such as gardening, permaculture, health, cooking, etc.  Some criticize me for this, stating stupid nonsense such as “today I REALLY prepared unlike yourself”.  Such fools probably think listening to some shock jock ramble on about the new world order while cleaning a gun they never fired is “really prepping”.

So today I am going to go over some of my favorite positive aspects of prepping and how they can be done for little to no money.  Because I believe this is another cause of “burn out”, a person preps to a level they financially can, they know what else they should do but can’t do it now due to fiscal reasons.  Being reminded about the hole in their energy redundancy doesn’t really help them on a daily basis.
