We have spent many months living in and publishing content within a war zone and the following accounts of our stories should hopefully let you in on our little secret. We have found some of the best times of our lives during these periods, but also some of the scariest. Most people who experience what we have experienced are either traumatized or don’t really have the right perspective coming back into their world.
The vast majority of people who are trying to survive during the war zone don’t even realize that it is possible to reduce their anxiety, tension and live a happy and healthy life. In this article, we are going to share some of our secrets about how to survive a war zone.
Surviving War (with Ease)
Most people think of a war zone as something that is horrific and impossible to live through. While anyone who lives through a war zone is undoubtedly changed by the situation, it is nonetheless possible to survive and even do so with ease.
#1. Mindfulness – the best kind of practice you can keep for surviving a war zone is to make sure you have a mindfulness approach. Any kind of mindfulness practice is going to help you to remove the stress from your life and support you in many ways going forward. The vast majority of people who are trying to incorporate a state of mindfulness into their daily life find that it is possible using the help of various other technologies (such as Headspace and others).
#2. Smart Supplementation – notice we did not say supplementation in general. There are many snake oil supplements out there and it isn’t a good idea to take these if you aren’t being careful. A smart supplementation option is to utilize something like Qualia or even microdosing LSD.
Most people who are utilizing these kinds of drugs find that there are a lot of helpful tools with them. Even though the top nootropics are the ones that can really help you, it is important to see everything for what it is. Even if you’re using something like oxiracetam for improved cognition, it’s a nootropic substance that has a lot of power.
#3. Community – no matter what aspect of life you are in, if you do not have a community, you are lost. There is very little chance that you are going to be able to have a successful war time experience if you are not spending some time with a community. Most people spend time with the people that they know, but even this is not necessary. You can branch out and feel at home in many places, but it is important to have a sense of community.
Many people just have their community within the family. This is a perfect community unit, which can have a robust number of benefits for you in the long run. Sebastian Junger has even produced a book that is all about community and how to improve aspects of cognition with these values.
