Here are six tips to STAYING AWARE and STAYING SAFE:
STAY OFF YOUR PHONE
Don’t walk around constantly with your head down! While you’re walking to your car, to class, to your office, with your groceries, don’t be texting or tweeting. Keep your head-up buttercup!
WATCH BODY LANGUAGE
Keep note of the people around you and how they’re acting. Do you notice someone staring at you a little too much? Acting shifty or dodgy? Following you a little too close? People that are watching you, tend to copy your movements.
FIND THE EXITS
Always know the closest exit to you and how to get there. When you’re panicking, you don’t think straight. So knowing ahead of time where to go and visualizing it, will make it almost instinct to run the right way.
LOOK AROUND & KEEP LOOKING
Don’t give your surrounding just one look over.
TRUST YOUR GUT
Your instincts are primal and chemical, trust them. If you don’t feel right about something or someone, remove yourself from your situation asap. Better to look like an ass that be in trouble.
