Is Prepping Pointless? Quick Way To Know If It Is!

It is pointless if you are doing it for the wrong reasons, like most things. If you see prepping as a means of having peace of mind and security that it is far from pointless! Wanting to have the knowledge that you’ll have food, water, and shelter if things go wrong, is 100% not pointless.


Realize what prepping is and isn’t. It is not a way to retire early or not take care of important people in your life. You can not allow prepping to take over your life or it could be detrimental. It should be used to protect you and your family first and foremost.


It should complement your life, not hinder it!


It’s not an all-or-nothing but one step at a time!


We all want results and answer’s right away! Without a moment’s delay!


Prepping is not a sprint by any means at all! It is a marathon that takes time and consistency


In reality, that’s just not how it works, in prepping and various aspects of life. If you’re like me, you might be reading this and thinking “Well what’s the point of taking all this time to prep if I’m not going to get results?”

I get it! And I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing situation. It can be one step at a time! As long as we keep moving forward, we’ll get there eventually.


Slow Down


The truth is that prepping takes time and it also takes consistency, something most people struggle with. One thing that makes people go overboard is going all in. Yes, in some situations going all-in is great (like when you’re trying out for a sports team or trying out for a job).


But when it comes to prepping, it should be done gradually so that we can actually stick with it long enough to see the results we want.

Prepping Can Feel Pointless


Prepping can feel pointless. We’re all about prepping, but it can be hard to stay motivated when you’re doing it for the long haul.


So here are some tips on how to make your prepping feel not-so-pointless:


1. Set goals and stick to them, so you can see how far you’ve come!

2. Don’t get caught up in rabbit holes of “improvements” or “perfection” that can never truly be achieved. It’s better to just focus on what’s important and move forward with that in mind.

3. Set aside some time every week just for yourself, no matter how busy you are!


It’s only pointless if you do it wrong.


Prepping can feel pointless and is if you do it wrong. You have to make sure that it doesn’t take over your life! It should enhance it.


When I first started prepping, I thought that all I needed to do was buy a few extra cans of tuna and some bottled water. But then I realized that if I really wanted to be prepared for anything, I had to start thinking about the bigger picture.


I Set Goals


This has helped me, so I realize how far I have come. Prepping really is not about just storing extra cans of tuns and water for an emergency. It really is about being ready for whatever life throws at you because life is unpredictable! This means looking at your life from different perspectives.


It’s common that when we’re prepping, we get so focused on what we’re going to store and how much food we need. That we lose focus or forget other important products we need in our daily lives. Many items do not have the “wow” aspect to prepping, such as hygiene or personal care products. But they are non the less important items.


And when it comes down to it, prepping isn’t just about stocking up on canned goods. It’s a way to be ready in all aspects of life, to help you if times get rough.

It’s better to have food and not need it than to need it and not have it.


Prepping for me acts as a security blanket for many aspects of my life.


But prepping is so much more than that. It’s about being able to get through anything life throws at you. It’s about knowing that if something happens and everything else goes to hell, I’ll still have what I need and can survive on. On my own terms until things get back on track again.


If the world as we know it ended tomorrow, I would be okay, because I would be able to survive. If there is a recession or economic collapse I have insulated my family as much as possible from its effects. The list goes on, but the peace of mind that prepping provides, if done correctly is an amazing feeling.


Prepping is pointless after a disaster has struck if you did not prep beforehand!


Prepping is pointless after a disaster has struck if you did not prep beforehand! Everyone who finds themselves in an emergency would have benefited from being prepared.

Prepping Is Great


Prepping is in my opinion one of the best ways to prepare for the unexpected which is life. It doesn’t have to cost alot of money either. It could be as simple as having enough food and water stored away if disaster strikes. It will depend on you and your goals.


Think about what would happen if there was no electricity? Or what if there was no running water? 


When emergencies happen, this tends to be one of the first things to go out. Having items that can assist you during troubling times, can make a world of difference.


You can also pick up new skills and knowledge that can be invaluable years from now. 




Prepping can seem pointless if you don’t have a plan or goals in mind. But if you take the time to set goals and prepare for different aspects of life, it can be an incredibly useful tool. Prepping is a great way to be ready for anything that comes your way, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. So make a plan, stock up on supplies, and be prepared for whatever life throws your way.
