Bear Grylls' 6 Top Survival Tips

By    |   Tuesday, 19 June 2018 10:10 AM

British adventurer Bear Grylls is widely known for his TV programs that focus on survival techniques. His ability and knowledge to prove survival tips come from his own thrilling exploits in the wild.

Who better to advise people on the dangers lurking in the wilderness than a man who has experienced first-hand expeditions on mountains, through forests, and in the desert. Grylls has learned to fear none of the obstacles — from hazardous weather conditions to threatening creatures — survivalists may face.

If you are caught surviving the outdoors, remember these six top survival tips from Bear Grylls:

1. Finding water — Water is essential to surviving in the outdoors. Faced with no other options, Grylls has hydrated himself with his own urine, provided it’s relatively clear, Survival Life points out. Sources also include fluids from plants and dead reptiles, such as snakes.

2. Eating creepy crawlies — Snakes once again come in handy for eating in the wild. So do insects and centipedes. When trying to survive in the wilderness, observe what other animals around you are eating.

3. Creating a fire — It’s best to be prepared when heading into the outdoors to keep warm and ward off wild animals. The best tool to have for fire-starting is the old bow drill, which includes a bearing block, fireboard, and bow. Matches also work. Rubbing two sticks together may be necessary.

4. Taking shelter — Shade is the most important shelter when stuck in a hot environment. Building your own shelter with the materials available brings protection and also helps for discovery or rescue. Bamboo is the best source for strength, according to Survival APEX. Bamboo also floats.

5. Staying dry — When stuck in the cold, a wet body can dramatically lose heat. Grylls was once forced to jump into freezing waters when his raft sank. He quickly removed his wet clothes when on dry land and started a fire to raise his body temperature. Wait until your wet clothes dry before putting them back on.

6. Remaining calm — Don’t panic. It’s easy to say, but you must keep your mind clear enough to deal with your situation. Remember that feeling fear is normal, Tacticalogy notes, but you must control it and focus on what to do now to help you survive.
