Seems that everywhere the popularity of a zombie invasion has begun as stories are showing up in movies, television series, computer games, and even Halloween costumes. They would have you believe zombies are being resurrected as a living corpse to roam the planet. There are reported studies that show the cause of becoming a zombie is by some unidentified virus, which can possibly attack humans. To support these studies, there have been recent incidences that shocked many people where an attacker have allegedly started eating flesh.
While I don’t buy those zombie invasion theories, I can see zombie like creatures roaming the countryside in search of food when the economy collapses. Whether that happens in the near future or not, it is important to be prepared at all times. Whether the attacker is a zombie, a wild animal or some crazed hungry person, there is nothing better than being prepared. Here are six survival tips on how to survive zombie invasions:
1. Be ready to run.
Wherever you encounter zombies, you’ll want to get away from them as quick as possible. Since survival is the most important thing, in order to perform better, you want your body toned enough to run an extended period. So exercise is one of the survival tips along with knowing how to warm-up. Running without proper warm-up can cause muscle problems. Therefore, if you do not like to be their lunch, you must exercise.
2. Find a good source of clean water.
During a zombie outbreak or any catastrophe, it is quite possible the water supply could become contaminated. Don’t count on finding drinking water on grocery store shelves as they will be quickly gobbled up by others. If you do find a source of water, you’ll want to boil it about 30-60 minutes just to be sure that it is potable. Do not forget to stock enough to be able to survive.
3. Find Shelter.
When searching for shelter, be sure to find a room with adequate space with the ability to barricade yourself from those zombies or other marauders. Also, ensure that there is an emergency escape path when zombies suddenly infiltrate your room.
4. Have a weapon and know how to use it.
During the zombie outbreak having the right weapon may be the wisest thing to do. Pick a weapon that you are comfortable with; whether it is a gun, axe, baseball bat, or anything that can help you survive and protect yourself from a zombie or other attacker.
5. Do not get too attached.
In the world where zombies can be anyone, it is vital to avoid being too attached to a person because when that person turns into a zombie it is difficult to deal with him or her due to the attachment. The hungry hoards may be your neighbors who did nothing to prepare and now find themselves breaking down your doors to get at your food and water. You may find family members also did nothing to prepare, so you might want to stock some extra food and water for them.
6. Don’t worry, be happy.
Lastly, when the zombie outbreak occurs, it is expected to come with sadness and horror. Hence, do not forget to try to enjoy the little things around you. Yes, zombies may be lurking everywhere however, to be able to survive and be sane you must enjoy the things around you. Things like drinking a cola, celebrating your birthday, doing a workout, and trying to practice shooting a zombie from the roof.
Whether zombies are real or not, and I don’t think they are, it’s important to understand that in a crisis many people are likely to act as if they are a zombie. Being prepared and knowing a few survival tips on how to survive a zombie outbreak or whatever kind of crisis may help you survive longer.
