Practical tips for personal safety – Personal safety is crucial to making progress in life and to keep you safe from negative vices – read full content below

  • Always stay at an alert: This is one of the foremost tips to ensure your personal safety. Always be at an alert and keep your antenna up especially in new surroundings. Don’t become so comfortable that you let your guard down entirely especially if you came alone/ and it is your first time in that area. Keep your eyes wide open, your ears open and your mouth close as you observe.
  • Follow your instincts: Our instincts are very powerful; some people call it the hunch or the sixth sense or intuition. Usually, when you begin to feel that something is not quite right then chances are trouble is lurking somewhere. If you feel uncomfortable at a particular place, then you may want to leave immediately.
  • Don’t stay in an enclosed place alone with a stranger: It is not advisable to stay in a room with a stranger without anyone else that is familiar to you. This is because if anything happens, there is no third person around to help you out if anything happens. You should not trust a stranger too easily to stay in an enclosed place with them alone.
  • Take enough emergency money with you: Sometimes you may need to run and run for good and you do not want to be stranded with no emergency cash to call an uber or stop a taxi. Having an emergency cash is advised so that you do not become stranded in a lonely place when you need to make your escape.
  • Don’t hesitate to shout for help when necessary: When the need arises and when the only way you can get help or attention is to shout then don’t be afraid or hesitant to shout for help and draw attention to yourself. Shouting usually draws the attention of others especially when there are people there.
  • Act confident: Sometimes, you have to fake it till you make it. When a predator sees how confident you are when observing you from afar, he may be discouraged to continue his assault. Stick out your chest and hold your head high.
  • Tell a trusted friend of your whereabouts: It is very advisable to let someone else other than you know your whereabouts before you leave. Call a friend; a close friend and let him or her know that you are about to go to so and so place with this person or that person. That way, someone else has an idea of where you are.
  • Keep a pepper spray(especially if you are a lady): The case of assault has increased greatly in the past few years. When you are going towards a dark place, take some pepper spray. or a little pocket knife in case you are forced to use it on your predator to disarm them and save yourself
  • Stay in well lit areas: As much as you can, stay in well lit areas and avoid the darker areas of a room, a supermarket or a bar. There is less tendency for you to get attacked when there are lights in your area than when there is darkness and you can barely see anyone.
  • Call the police: Yes, when the predator gets too close, dial the police immediately and inform them. In some countries, the police service is not as fast as other places and if you cannot rely on the timeliness of the police in your area then run as fast as you can out of that situation.
