Ten things you can do if you are stranded
When you discovered that you’re stranded, take your pack off, lie down for some minutes without panic. This will help you to think of the next line of action to take. Remember at this moment; you can mar your life by negative actions you take. Tell yourself, be stranded is not the end of my life, I can make something positive out of it.
I have had such unforgettable experienced in the past, and I know how one can feel in such situation. Imagine waiting for a flight only for you to turn back, your luggage has disappeared into thin air or your trip to catch-up a business meeting was canceled when you were about boarding the plane.
Discussed here are some of the things you can do when stranded:
This is not the time to panic; rather you need to be calm and ruminate on what next to do. Make some necessary contacts if possible and don’t sound like someone in a hopeless situation. Your responses to this will go a long way to help you health-wise. Don’t worsen the case by doing something that will endanger your health.
A misadventure is part of life, and it is a learning curve that makes one appreciate life more. Have fun and be positive about it. If you can lay hands to any edible thing, eat it and behave as if nothing has happened to you.
