The reason this preparation step is a two part subject is because the two go hand in hand. Stress and health related issues.

The vicious cycle of being under stress causes us to eat less healthy and exercise less. Stress itself causes a myriad of bad chemical reactions within our bodies which add to the poor eating habits and lack of physical activity.  But both a better diet and healthy balance of moving our bodies actually helps to combat the stress both mentally and physically.

The topic of ‘preparation’ can cause stress. That’s why the vast majority of people prefer to live with their heads in the sand about it. It is our hope that this site will help to lessen that stress. Stress leads to so many health issues. Just Google the word and you will find a list longer than ever before.

Why this topic of dealing with stress and getting or staying healthy in a PREPARATION blog for preparing for hard times? The answer is simple.

Gardening, living on less income, general upkeep or survival depend greatly upon being healthy enough to perform those tasks and more. Life is not as easy after a stroke, heart-attack or combating cancer.

Get some exercise daily. Eat a healthier diet. Deal with stress (the first two will help).

Prepare the best physical tool you were gifted with, your body, to be more long-term than your preparation plans themselves.

Best Blessings and enJOY the journey!
