Many people fear that if they start stockpiling supplies for a disaster, it will be a total waste if nothing ever happens. Consequently, many would-be preppers never even get started. This is a shame for many reasons. First of all, if you’re smart about it, you will mainly stockpile supplies you can use anyway, so there’s no need to worry about a disaster not happening. And second, prepping is good for you in many ways.
In this article from The Prepper Journal, the author lists 8 reasons prepping is good for you.
