If you have access to a survival bunker when the SHTF, you’re lucky. Especially if there’s an apocalyptic disaster like a nationwide EMP or nuclear war. However, there is one problem with survival bunkers that most people don’t consider: boredom.
Nowadays, most people can’t sit still for five minutes with checking their phones, looking for something to read, watching a nearby television, etc. When’s the last time you just sat and did absolutely nothing? How long did you last? Because you’ll have a lot of nothing to do when surviving underground.
This is why it’s a good idea to have some hobbies you can do in a small, enclosed space. This is so important because it keeps you hopeful (so you don’t start to despair), and it keeps your mind occupied (so you don’t obsess over the doomsday scenario outside), among other reasons.
In this article from The Prepper Journal, the author talks about 8 things you can do to keep yourself occupied while living in a bunker.
