Instinct a primitive and primal human function that may even influence one’s thinking and action. As natural creatures in the ecosystem, humans are also the prospect of living, surviving and playing a role in the environment, influencing and developing, utilizing or either destroying, people have their part to play. The headline is, as humans evolved to become more civilized, survival ought them to group themselves in order to exist since if you’re many in number the higher probability of the specie to survive, as one of the many evolutionary researches claim. But what an incident happens and you become stuck in the wild, all by yourself and if you’re lucky, a companion? In this new era, without readiness and awareness, you can be toast.
In many contexts, many people have already heard about survival and the concepts it displays. Survival is also one fundamental human or any animal function that helps or drives them to keep existing, despite of the weather conditions, environmental harshness and predators. And as years have gone by, for almost billions of years, humans have evolved and developed the neo-cortex according to the Triune Brain Theory that made humans unique and can process higher mental mechanisms than any other creatures in the planet which have been aiding humans to strategize, plan and develop despite the thousands of predators and matters of cycle changes. This development is where humans could have an advantage whether it was in the past or the present. Humans still have this state of mind to conjure nature and the creatures in it.
In the wild, you have to be:
Psychologically alert. This article is entitled self or “psyche” in sole purpose that psychology has every reason and influence on human survival, most of all. The attitude of any individual on how he/she will react on the situation he/she is in will influence his/her state of condition. Being stuck in the middle of the forest in not a simulated form of entertainment or exercise, it is an emergency which calls upon humans and their selves, be alarmed and aware. Bringing into the perspective, awareness is one factor that makes any other acts make sense. Many studies and psychological concepts goes back to this construct of self-awareness, since through and because of this cue, everyone is conscious and attentive of their self and thus the environment similarly, in the wild.
Physical-Mental synergy. What is mental is physical. In most psychology researches, these journal-related technical investigators may explain that many physical disorders, like stress perhaps, are influenced by their psychological states, perhaps depressed individuals. This paradigm most likely affects people in surviving the wild, in aiming self-preservation with nature, being able to control yourself, keep tight, and be vigilant, and adapt to your surroundings, participate and strategize. Because as your mind works, the body produces. In all circumstances, keep calm and live.
Positive approach. This last concept in this model presents self-driven and self-determined individuals having a higher chance of enduring the wild, as one study asserts. In positive psychology, have traits like courage, happiness, wisdom, love and etc. helps in many human conditions a lot more easier, human beings are basically good and are supposed to thrive in many rigorous circumstances even with our thin epithelial cells covering and easily scraped, we can keep on moving forward because of how our brain works. Like in the wild, having awareness, self-control and self-determined personas we can survive.
Trust your instincts, that’s what most people say but take a step back and be aware, be able to control and motivate yourself! Our primitive brain can deceive us easily because of our aggressive drives or uncertain guts. In the wild, we have to be keen to details and adapt as much as we possibly can and this is not only in the context of the situation, but survival starts with you!
