5 Underrated City Survival Skills

Everyone has certain type of skills. When applying for jobs, you are required to have skillset that matches what the employers are looking for but there is another type of skills every human should at least have, those are survival skills.

We live in a beautiful world but at the same time it can be damaging as well. Natural calamities happen, for example, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis. The chances of surviving these disasters are pretty high if people are prepared.

Here Are 5 Underrated City Survival Skills You Should Know

1. Agriculture

This may sound like a heavy duty but it is actually simple and greatly beneficial. You may think planting in the city is near to impossible due to lack of land or soil. While it’s ideal to have a wide space of rural land, you can actually start growing your own garden with just a bed soil.

Planting is a useful skill to have in order to survive, knowing how to grow your own food not only saves you money but also, it saves you the time to go to the supermarket to buy food. Worst case scenario is there won’t be food left to buy in the market but if you plant your own consumables, you will be good

2. Preparing First Aid Kit

Having a First Aid Kit in every household has been taught since primary school but you would be surprised to know how many families don’t actually have one.  It is a basic necessity but will surely go a long way. From having the most common type of medicines, bandages and wound dressing to anti-allergy ointments, having these in a First Aid Kit is another important skill one must learn in order to survive

3. Self-defense

Knowing how to defend one’s self is critical in surviving. It’s easy to rely on someone else; a friend or a family to fight for you but what happens if there is only you who can do that? Learning some self-defense techniques should be on your list.

There are several types of self-defense techniques you could learn but the most basic ones can start from knowing how to kick ass, throwing punches or a combination of both; Muay Thai. There are plenty of businesses that offer classes on these self-defense techniques so if you have the time and the money to spare, then you might as well enroll yourself to one.

4. Flexibility

Flexibility is the ability to adapt to a certain situation or changes. A flexible person is someone who can think fast and effectively when problems arise. This is an important survival skill because when you’re flexible, going with the flow and knowing what to let go or what to bring to the next table plays a crucial part in surviving.

If you lack this skill, you will most likely be viewed as a liability and be left out in the room. While independence is admirable, having friends or people in your circle will surely help you to survive.

5. Resourcefulness

Along with being flexible, being resourceful is one of the underrated city survival skills. Having the ability to identify a certain problem is one thing but knowing where to get the resources to be able to provide solution is just as important. Say the water system in the building you’re living in collapses due to an earthquake, if you know another place to get water supply, it will surely be worth it. Water is highly essential, as a matter of fact, it is more important than food.

Those are just some of the underrated city survival skills, it all comes down to being prepared whenever something comes up.
