How do you even prepare for a recession?

I also want an answer to this question. My current MO is to just ‘continue as normal’* because the economy has looked out-of-control and ready to crash for ages now, and you can’t live on red alert for years at a time without devolving into a jittery mess of bloodshot eyes and missed opportunities.

*That said, it should be noted that ‘as normal’ for me includes living well within my means and making no assumptions about future earning capacity. If your ‘as normal’ includes happily tucking into mass amounts of credit while saying ‘LALALALALALACAN’THEARYOU’, perhaps you should consider a new direction.
