Mental Aspects Of Emergency Response And Survival - Comfort Zones

Dijukno humans are creatures of habit? Once the habits of routine, organization, and discipline are established, people become comfortable with their behavior and surroundings. People generally become
skilled and proficient only after a period of slow, deliberate actions while learning what is expected of them. These are their comfort zones. Everyone establishes these both physically and mentally. Comfort zone limits vary with each individual in accordance with experience and knowledge. Each person is unique in abilities. Since a human being is basically a creature of habit, most will rarely go out of their comfort zones. This brings a difficulty of functioning in any emergency environment. Very often, every decision is important, and there is little room for mistakes. At best, decision making is difficult and even more true in times of emotional upset. The best way to prepare mentally is through self-discipline, and practice during everyday routine. Look for opportunities to expand your comfort zone into areas that you may be currently unsure of.

 Ask yourself - are you a person who continually takes the easy way out or do you tackle everyday problems with a positive attitude, and direct approach? These questions can be applied to personal relationships, and situations that develop.

 The answers may give you a good indication of your ability to react under stress. Good habits in training, and everyday life pay off in an emergency.
