Last week I talked about the importance of pacing ourselves. This week, I want to talk about what to do if we’ve already missed that boat and are now paying the price. Luckily the prepping world already has the perfect slogan for us to adapt: Stop, Drop, and Roll.
- STOP and take a hard look at where your time, energy, and probably money are being spent
- DROP everything that is non-essential–yes everything; if it isn’t directly related to paying this month’s rent, feeding your kids for the next few days, or keeping yourself well and safe, lose it
- ROLL with what comes up
Chances are, if you’re anything like me, stopping can feel even harder than plowing through. And sometimes it is. But we have to keep our eye on the prize, because if we go down, who’s going to be minding the store?
