The first thing to do when faced with a survival situation is stay calm and assess your surroundings. The amygdala in the brain is known to activate a fight or flight response when thrown into life or death situations, but by remaining conscious of your surroundings you can better formulate a survival plan.
The next step is to find a water source. A human can only survive about three days without water, so it should be a priority in any survival scenario. There are many ways to purify water, including using a river or lake, plants, snow, rain, and condensation traps. Just be sure to avoid any discolored or dirty water, as it may contain bacteria or other contaminants.
A healthy diet is also vital for survival, so locating food should be one of your top priorities. You can get a variety of proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals by hunting for animals with spears or bow and arrows, fishing in lakes or rivers, or even foraging for wild edibles like roots, berries, and mushrooms.
Finally, it is important to protect yourself from predators and the elements by building shelters. You can find and use a wide variety of materials to construct a shelter, but be careful to choose the right material for your environment. A shelter should be warm enough to keep you from freezing in the winter, but not too hot so that you will overheat in the summer. A good shelter should also be strong and sturdy to withstand the elements, so make sure it is constructed with quality materials.
