20 useful skills that everyone should master

We live in a surprisingly comfortable and well-fed time. Cold and hot water flows from the tap, the shelves in the neighboring store are bursting with food, and a computer friend gives an immediate and comprehensive answer to any question. It cannot be said that this is bad, by no means. But can we live without these benefits of civilization? What will we do if our personal destiny (or the fate of all mankind, why not?) suddenly it will change dramatically and we will have to provide ourselves with everything we need?

In recent years, the survival horror genre has been very popular. Survival after the general apocalypse. However, computer entertainment does not contribute much to real skills. To test your readiness for any life circumstances, we present a list of the 20 most necessary skills that everyone should know. I wonder how many items from this list can you mark?

  1. Light a fire. Many of us will not be able to light a fire even with dry wood and matches. What can we say about more difficult conditions.
  2. Have basic survival skills. Knowledge of places where you can find water, what you can and cannot eat in the wild, how to build a shelter, how to catch fish, how to cross the river correctly, how to maintain body temperature.
  3. How to grow vegetables. If all the shops disappear, then only the vegetable garden will help you survive. If, of course, you can grow something.
  4. Be able to swim. There are a number of emergencies when you may need to be able to swim to survive yourself or to help another person.
  5. How to change a tire. Applies to both a car and a bicycle.
  6. How to provide first aid. We constantly see dozens of different deadly plots on the screens, but once we find ourselves in a dangerous situation where human life and health depend on our help, we fall into a stupor.
  7. How to dress properly. There are a huge number of fashion magazines telling about the color of ties, but you may need completely different information. Learn how to protect yourself from cold and heat, what to protect yourself from insect bites and save yourself from injury.
  8. How to interact with people. In difficult times, you will need mutual assistance and the help of people. It's time to restore these skills lost in the era of social networks.
  9. How to lift your own weight. If you can hardly move from the refrigerator to the computer and back, then you are unlikely to be able to help yourself and your loved ones in difficult situations. You'd rather be an extra burden.
  10. Be able to bargain. In times of crisis, the value of things will change greatly and money may lose its usual status. Your well-being will greatly depend on your ability to bargain and negotiate.
  11. How to protect yourself from one or more attackers. Self-defense skills are not acquired by destroying monsters on the monitor screen for many hours. In the case of a crisis situation, this is probably the first skill that can be useful to you.
  12. Learn to tell stories. In the absence of electricity and Internet, nothing will brighten up your long evenings like a fascinating life story.
  13. How to fix everything in the world. You will have to master the profession of a carpenter, carpenter, car mechanic and plumber. And it's not about saving money at all. There will simply be no one to call.
  14. Master navigation without GPS. The ability to navigate by compass and map is almost forgotten nowadays.
  15. Learn to sew. If you are confused by a girl's sitting with a needle, then master the dressing and sewing of animal skins with a bone needle.
  16. Know how to drive a car. Perhaps now you are traveling by public transport or you are being driven by a personal chauffeur. But in the event of a crisis, neither option works.
  17. Know how to store products. Now you will have to dry meat, preserve, make pickles and jams yourself, and not choose on the supermarket shelf.
  18. Learn how to cook. Sooner or later you will have to do it. Unless, of course, you want to die from the eternal scrambled eggs with bacon and sandwiches.
  19. How to live without Google. Perhaps you will feel a little like an orphan. Be strong.
  20. Learn to run. If you have learned some of the skills suggested above poorly, then the ability to run may be your last hope.

And what valuable crisis management skills can you boast of? Impress us with your comment starting with the words «I can…»!
