Our Mission

We’ll admit it…”The Daily Survivalist” is a bit misleading as far as names go. Sure, we teach you how to take care of yourself, the tools you’ll need, and the skills required to use them properly, but this site is about so much more than merely surviving.

But unfortunately, “The Daily Thrivealist” just didn’t quite have that same ring to it, so we stuck with what we had.

We understand that, now more than ever, people like you are feeling the weight of uncertainty in your day to day lives. It’s a crippling reality, and one of countless reasons why you might feel trapped in the routine of just trying to make it to the next day.

We get it, and we want to help.

Here, you’ll learn a basic skillset – big and little things you can do every day – to give you confidence to step out of your comfort zone and do the things you’ve always wanted to do.
