When in a situation that seems doomed (ie: lifeboat in the ocean, lost deep in the woods, etc),
- Don’t focus on what will happen tomorrow
- Do what you need to do to survive the next 4 hours.
- Repeat until things get better.
- Focus on lasting until the next meal, instead of the whole week
- Reduces feeling over being overwhelmed
