More Survival Tips From 'The Walking Dead'


Can’t get enough of The Walking Dead? Whether you’re a huge zombie fan or simply became enthralled with this particular show, there are plenty of survival skills to take away from the much-celebrated AMC series. Let’s tack on a few more tips to those we’ve already discussed.

Remain aware of your surroundings

You might not have zombies to worry about, but that doesn’t make staying aware of your surroundings any less important. After all, you don’t want to turn around and find yourself face-to-face with a bear. If you’re lost, camping out, or otherwise wandering around the wilderness, keep a weather eye out at all times.

Don’t flip out

One of the most important aspects of survival is staying calm and cool. Freaking the heck out means you aren’t breathing properly, not to mention drawing attention to yourself and your group. You don’t want to get the attention of any nearby predators or crazy people, so remember to take a few deep breaths and think about your next move.

Use what you’ve got

The heroes of The Walking Dead know a thing or three about being resourceful. They regularly take full advantage of what they have around them and are expert scavengers to boot. Making the most of anything you find — anything at all — is a great way to keep yourself, you know, not dead.

Catalog these and other tips — such as procuring food, shelter and water — for when you’re faced with a dire situation!
