10. Stay positive
This is definitely the hardest of all the steps on this list, but it’s also the most important. The main reason why people die during any difficult situation is because they lose hope and fall into depression. Without any type of hope, faith, or love keeping people alive and chained to the world that was, they’re likely to lose their minds or become so distraught that don’t care whether they live or die all together. Do your best to focus on the little happy moments of each day, no matter how fleeting they may appear. The best defense against a zombie isn’t a gun, crossbrow, or a sword – it’s a simple smile.
