That’s the idea behind what the Navy SEALs call “drown-proofing,” a regimen that involves swimming with bound hands and feet.

I have to agree n this 'Get organized or die—it’s a point survival instructors always emphasize. Have a plan or make a plan. The plan should have logical steps. The steps should be small and achievable and should lead to a clear goal. The first step in getting organized is assessing your situation.

I like this part most , its very inspiring ' If you engage in activities that might bring on panic, you should train in situations that are as realistic as possible—the way a scuba diver will practice removing the regulator from his mouth and switching to spare or buddy breathing. Then, when actually faced with potential panic, you’ll be able to breathe, organize, and act.

I especially like the part about "training how you play" and preparing for scenarios that can cause panic.

My brother who is 5 ft.9 almost drowned in a 3 ft. deep pool because of panic. He came out of a water slide without knowing how deep the water was and he had no idea which way was up.He was just sitting horrizontally on the bottom, eyes closed, struggling.
At first It got me laughing but after some seconds I realized he was so panicked he wouldn't come out on his own so I pulled him out.

Great article on how to fight panic!

I've recently been thinking about anxiety in less acute situations.

I'm toying with a 2x2 matrix with the top being 'positive expectation of success' and the side being 'concern what other people think', where those 2 factors are seen as the causes of most anxiety in general situations.

This clip relates to my idea of positive expectation:

"The more you practice creating organized plans and executing them step-by-step, the better you’ll function in an emergency.

Awesome article!

Good rules to remember: Breath, organize and act.

Staying calm is defiantly the way to go... when there is a car accident the one who is drunk and driving survives most of the time cause his body is relaxed at impact where the one getting hit tenses up.

This site is great, you can learn so many things.

Great article.
Good rules to remember: Breath, organize and act.
Even in non life threatening situations these rules apply. Make for good practice also.

Fascinating article, as usual. I haven't been in a great number of true emergency situations, but I tend not to panic, while others are. I don't have any special training, and I wonder if it's not just partly personality or genetics or upbringing. I noticed the woman in the diving tale did not panic like the man. I wonder if there's a gender component? Thanks for your work, I loved your book. Great reading.

Good read, lots to learn. this can add up to the "three's" rule: you can survive three seconds without "head", three minutes without air...
How can you skip/overcome the breathing part if, for example, your are already underwater? only training will?

Great article! Thanks! I especially like the part about "training how you play" and preparing for scenarios that can cause panic.

I think that the more we encounter "panic scenarios" the more comfortable one becomes, not only with that instance but in dealing with panic, overall.
