Canadian Prepper is probably the best survival-related channel on Youtube. He’s made hundreds of high-quality videos on a variety of topics. This particular video is on a topic that isn’t discussed often enough: survival psychology.
People in the first world live such easy, cushy lives compared to everyone else. Yes, even those of you who work long hours and have trouble paying the bills still live a much more comfortable lifestyle than most people in the world. So when the shit hits the fan, most people–even preppers–will be completely unprepared for the mental toll it will take.
Just imagine having to live with the constant threat of dangerous people, rampant disease, or lack of water. That kind of stress is on a whole other level than the stress of going into debt or working through the weekend. Fortunately, every human being has the ability to endure extreme levels of stress without cracking up (short of pure torture).
But this video isn’t just about handling stress in a survival scenario; it’s about handling stress in everyday life. After all, first you need to learn how to handle daily problems before you can handle SHTF problems.
I highly encourage you to watch this video as it’s one of the most inspiring things I’ve seen in a while. Plus, Canadian Prepper is a mental health counselor who pulled himself up by his bootstraps and accomplished great things despite many disadvantages, so he knows what he’s talking about.
