    8: Water for Survival, Emergencies & Everyday - Part 1

    In this episode, we dive into the crucial topic of water preparedness and the importance of having a reliable water supply both for emergencies and everyday use. We take a look at the different reasons why water can become an inconvenient or even life-threatening issue as well as the strategies to increasing our water preparedness.

    Key points: We can only live a few days without water. We talk about how much you need to prepare for and the best ways to start. During major weather events or disasters, it has taken days or even weeks for help to arrive. We talk about how controlling our water plans is part of the mama bear mindset and building up self-reliance. Three steps to take this week so you can have a 2-week supply for your whole family, including: Step 1: Starting with accessible options like bottled water for immediate readiness. Step 2: Investing in reliable water filtration systems for long-term sustainability. Step 3: Building a larger water supply with storage tanks for extended contingencies. Action Items & Next Steps: Do the math on how many gallons of water you and your family will need for 14 days. Follow the other couple of steps to get your quick water backstop ready. Make sure you are on the email list here and I will send you the free water guide with all of this information and more broken down very easily!
