The following are signs of prepper burnout. Prepper burnout is the becoming frustrated, tired or wanting to give up prepping for various reasons.
Sign 1: They only read pessimistic new articles and ignore an encouraging outlook.
Sign 2: They don’t see the beauty or pleasure in daily life, being focused on the end.
Sign 3: They spend all their money on securing goods and nothing for themselves or their entertainment.
Sign 4: They visit preparedness websites daily which can slowly reduce their optimism and outlook.
These are some simple ideas on how you can fix prepper burnout if you see it occurring.
Resolution 1: Realize that the world ending tomorrow is possible but not very likely.

Resolution 3: Find a healthy balance between prepping and enjoying life.
Resolution 4: Focus on buying food and gear you will use in daily life and which won’t be just stored on a shelf.
Resolution 5: Take a break and focus on other activities or a skill that has links to prepping such as archery.
