Take action to prepare for power outages, specifically, what are you going to do about lighting when the lights go out? Sometimes, power outages are a short, minor inconvenience. Other times power may be out for days or even weeks. There are several types of emergency lighting worth considering.
Do you rely on your phone for keeping track of important phone numbers? Since dialing our phones is automatic with just the touch of a screen, most of us don’t memorize very many phone numbers, even those we call frequently. The only phone number besides my own that I have memorized is my husband’s. As important as my kids are to me, and even as frequently as I call them, I haven’t memorized their phone numbers! Does that sound familiar? With just a little forethought and advanced preparation you can be prepared with your family member’s contact information in case of a crisis.
Physical preparedness is only part of being prepared. Emotional and mental preparedness are also important in being able to handle difficult and challenging situations. Just as we can take steps to physically prepare, we can also develop and cultivate emotional resiliency.
