No matter how well protected you are, zombie invasions are stressful for the whole family. To combat the undead doldrums, dedicate part of your house to relaxation and entertainment. Like Shaun of the Dead
, you can take refuge by building your very own bar
. And be sure to stock up on board games for the kids (video games use up power and can alert zombies to your home). As Max Brooks says in The Zombie Survival Guide
, "In a long and seemingly interminable siege, boredom can lead to paranoia, delusion and hopelessness. It is important to keep your mind in good shape."
