    THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? PREPARE WITH EMERGENCY FOOD, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT WEIRD.

    THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? PREPARE WITH EMERGENCY FOOD, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT WEIRD.

    Often, when I tell people I work in the food storage and prepping business, somewhere in the conversation that then tails this information, the so-called 'zombie apocalypse' is brought up. You'd be surprised by how many people actually consider this their number one motivation for prepping, or at least wanting to prep.

    So, what's this whole zombie apocalypse thing really about? Let me try to explain. We've all heard of the media inspired walking dead with a cannibalistic taste for human flesh, and the domino effect of the infected. It's definitely been blown up in the cinematic spotlight reaching audiences all around the world who truly find this concept a worst case scenario/nightmare.

    And really, the general idea of a zombie apocalypse is not that outlandish. It's about an infectious disease that spreads faster than a cure can be created and proven safe. This has happened a lot in history. It's about humans who lose their grasp of reality and start to eat each other (okay, not so common of an issue, but still, relevant to rabies and other such illnesses). The outbreak causes mass-panic and civilization erupts with anarchy; this has happened before.

    Preparing for a zombie pandemic is like preparing for most crises: prepare so that you can hide out until it passes and trust only yourselves with the rations and supplies you've smartly collected independently of the government, since - let's face it - there's way too many people and not enough life boats. It's sort of like a societal fallout, when humans no longer behave like humans, and you can't risk being infected or killed.

    According to the Zombie Response Team, bug-out bags are one popular and easy way to prepare for a pandemic of sorts (Keep an eye out for our new bags coming in 2019. We are partnering with some of the best tactical companies in the industry to bring you the best gear to keep you surviving.). Mylar pouches are the best containers and cans are the worst thing to have. Don't get slowed down by heavy cans of food, our freeze dried MREs are perfect for fleeing the panic and grab-n-go buckets make it easy to evacuate fast. Our Emergency Food Kits are perfect for short term needs. If you want to hide out longer, check out our Long Term Food Storage with a 25 year shelf life. All our meals are prepared by simply adding water.

    Whether you're worried about zombies or not, preparing for chaos is always the best way to safeguard your role in the uncertain future. Please, don't eat people; eat My Food Storage meals!

    THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER

    THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER

    Water is the source of life on Earth. It's something we need in order to survive, an element we couldn't live without. But it's almost too simple. With all the sugar-packed and carbonated drinks we consume every day water can easily be forgotten. The fact that we need water to live is obvious, but what we would do without it is often overlooked. It's everywhere, after all. Gas stations and grocery stores, vending machines, fountains and pipes. But what about when none of these amenities are available to us?

    Disasters take many forms, but more often than not, our most basic modern amenities become unusable in a crisis. Have you ever seen a grocery store right before a snow storm? Imagine that times a hundred. In addition to storing long-term food, it's vital that we do not forget about our most precious life source - water. We can survive much longer without food than without water.

    We can't depend solely upon modern conveniences. It is important that we prepare for the life's uncertainties with all the things we need to survive and live well. Prepping is a big step toward empowering ourselves and relieving the anxiety caused by the future’s uncertainties. The threats are out there, and in wide variety. This is why My Food Storage provides high quality and affordable emergency supplies that make sense. We offer many products that can give you the clean water you need in a disaster situation. My Food Storage is offering 10% OFF all water purification products in August to celebrate Water Quality Month. Also, if you spend $100 on Food Storage you will get a FREE Aquamira Frontier Water Straw and if you spend $200 you will get an Aquamira Water Treatment Kit.

    HOW TO SURVIVE ANYTHING

    HOW TO SURVIVE ANYTHING

    A crisis can take many different shapes and forms. Hazards are everywhere, waiting to surface. So how do we survive whatever the future holds? How can we minimize the damage?

    - First of all, be aware. Stay informed and understand what risks there are for your particular part of the world. Usually, it's impossible to know just exactly when or where a disaster will strike, but the least you can do is determine your risks and prepare for the worst.

    - Plan Ahead. We're all about this. Prepping is your best bet on a secure future no matter the circumstances. There are times when we can't help being taken by surprise, which is why it is so important that we are ready for anything. Make plans with your family in case of an evacuation, or a disaster that calls for staying in and waiting it out. This way, when the time comes you won't need to panic because you'll already know what to do.

    - Stock Up! Put together a good stock of long term emergency food and water, along with other survival supplies. Don't rely on modern amenities, keep back-up alternatives for heat, light, and power. We recommend at least a 1 month supply of food, but preferably more. You never know how long you'll need it, and the last thing you want to do is go hungry during an emergency.

    Having a personal supply of food and water empowers you to take control of your survival and minimize the damage it has on the necessities and daily comforts you and your family need.

    - Stay Calm & Conserve... Don't lose your head in a crisis; you're going to need it. Be rational, all things pass. Focus on the positive and keep yourself well hydrated and fed so you are strong enough to face any emergency. Don't waste any energy unless absolutely necessary.

    There are a lot of hazards out there this summer. Remember all of these important things when prepping for any kind of disaster, and if and when the day comes, don't forget these survival basics. It's simple: follow your plan, eat and drink as needed, conserve energy, stay calm and wait it out.

    SURVIVAL'S WORST ENEMIES: TOP 7 THREATS TO YOUR PSYCHE

    SURVIVAL'S WORST ENEMIES: TOP 7 THREATS TO YOUR PSYCHE

    In any sort of disaster crisis, your survival depends on a few major factors that help fuel your body's ability to pull through a rough situation. To secure your survival, make sure you address all of these threats in your emergency plan to keep your enemies at bay.

    1. Panic: This intense emotion is driven by anxiety and fear, and can blur your focus and performance in a crisis. It is important to remain calm and act wisely, stick to the plan and do not allow your emotions to get the best of you. Falling a part in the midst of a disaster will compromise your ability to survive.
    2. Temperature: If you are excessively hot or cold in a crisis, you will become fatigued and agitated. Extremely low or high temperatures can be life-threatening, which is why it is important to keep an alternate heating and cooling source. A generator can run a small space heater or fan without electricity.
    3. Thirst: We cannot survive very long without water, it is the most needed resource in our survival. Be sure to store water year-round, and rotate as needed. Keep enough to last your family at least a week, preferably much longer.
    4. Sleep Deprivation: Without sleep, parts of the body begin to shut down, starting with the brain. We cannot function without sleep, our ability to think and rationalize will quickly vanish, and our chance of survival dwindles.
    5. Injury: With limited resources in the midst of a disaster, especially if you are hunkered down, a small injury can quickly become fatal. The best way to secure your safety is to stay inside, away from potential hazards, and keep a well-stocked first aid kit.
    6. Boredom: In addition to your physical needs, like food and water, your mental and emotional needs are also vital to nurture in a crisis. Keep some games and books in your emergency supply to help stimulate your mind while waiting out the storm. This will also help to keep everyone calm and distracted from worry.
    7. Hunger: Hunger sets in quickly, and will soon affect all areas of your well-being: mental, physical and emotional. Without food you will not survive very long. Store a long-term supply of food that is easy to prepare and store. We recommend at least 3 months worth to start.

    It is important to remember all of these threats when preparing for disasters. Without proper preparation and planning, a crisis can be fatal. Avoid your enemies and secure your survival with your own long-term supply now.
