Introduction

In a survival situation, the powers that be always say don't panic, but that is almost useless information because it is so basic and obvious. This following list tells you specifically what to do, instead of what not to. This list is based on the book, Deep Survival, which is based on the idea that some people with all the correct equipment give up and die while some people who are ill prepared succeed. The list is basically about how not to panic.

trust your gut feelings before taking on situations you think may lead to risk

CONCENTRATE ON ATTITUDE FIRST

pray for focus

turn fear into focus, strength for action

pay attention to details

focus on the hear and now

START TAKING ACTION

be bold but also cautious

believe anything is possible

expect things to be different this time

GO SLOW AND REST

go slow - allow things to take 8 times longer than expected

remember to rest - only go at 60% your normal speed

long term memories can help you rest

MORE SPECIFIC

give yourself small tasks

develop a routine

try to help others

do anything necessary to survive

KEEP GOING

do not second guess yourself or think about why the risky situation occurred

let other family members motivate you

balance privacy and community

use humor and awe of the power of nature
