10 Impactful Prepper Resolutions for the New Year

Setting goals and achieving them is not only beneficial for prepping, but also for personal development. As preppers, we plan for various situations, but it's equally important to plan for self-improvement. New Year's resolutions provide an excellent opportunity for introspection, skill-building, and continuous improvement.

While there are many prepper-oriented resolutions to consider, any form of self-improvement is always time well spent. It's a good idea to set specific goals that can be tracked and reviewed at the end of the year.

Here are some impactful prepper resolutions to consider for the New Year:

Pick up a New Hobby

Prepping isn't just about preparedness. There are numerous opportunities to learn new skills through hobbies. Engaging in a new hobby in the new year is a great way to meet people, challenge yourself, and grow. Check out our list of the best prepping and survival hobbies for some options to explore.

Get Back to Basics

Review your Emergency Survival Plan and ensure that it's up to date. When was the last time you ran a drill? Are the contact numbers current? Regularly check the functionality of your fire alarms and recharge your fire extinguishers. Incorporate these tasks into a recurring schedule to develop good habits.

Rotate Your Food Storage

Checking expiration dates is important, but you can also document, track, and organize your food storage based on type and expiration. Consider using the FIFO storage method (first in, first out) for proper food rotation. Make a plan not only to stockpile food but also to use it. Our guide on prepper pantries and survival food stockpiles can help you get started.

Breaking the Habit

Identify and address bad habits that may hinder your preparedness efforts. Simple habits like picking your nose or biting your nails can have severe consequences during emergencies, such as a deadly pandemic. Additionally, phone addictions can negatively impact attention spans and create dependencies. Use the New Year as an opportunity to tackle these habits and eliminate them for good.

Diversify Your Finances

Don't keep all your money in one place. Diversify your investments to minimize risk. Spreading your money between different investments, known as diversification, is not only smart for investing but also for prepping. While we don't provide specific financial advice, we discuss the importance of financial preparedness for preppers.

Volunteer in Your Community

Being prepared individually is commendable, but it's equally important to spread preparedness within your community. Consider volunteering in organizations such as CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) or explore other volunteer opportunities. By dedicating your time and resources to help others, you not only grow as a person but also improve the overall preparedness of your community.

Get the Kids Involved

Involve your kids in preparedness activities to help them develop resilience and valuable skills for emergencies. Assign them responsibilities and be intentional in your parenting approach. Building a kids' bug out bag together is a simple yet effective way to engage them in preparedness.

Meet Other Preppers

Prepping doesn't have to be a solitary activity. Joining a prepper group can enhance your preparedness efforts. Finding a prepper group may require some research since many preppers prioritize operational security (OPSEC) and don't openly discuss their resources and skills. We provide guidance on the best ways to meet other preppers and form connections.

Get Organized

Organize your gear and resources to ensure easy access when needed. Utilize our survival color code reference and downloadable checklists to help you organize your gear effectively. Having resources is only helpful if you can find them quickly during emergencies.

Improve Your Fitness

Physical fitness is crucial for emergencies. Being able to carry and utilize your gear effectively is essential. You don't need to make drastic lifestyle changes, but it's important to maintain a level of fitness that allows you to handle the physical demands of unexpected situations. Our guide on practical prepper fitness provides valuable insights and tips.

Remember to document your resolutions, share them with someone who can hold you accountable, and make them measurable within a specific timeframe. While some people use the SMART goal acronym, keeping it simple can also be effective.
