879034Everyday, people take unnecessary chances with their personal security. The majority of the time, their mind set is that, “nothing bad is going to happen to me today.”  Sadly, all too often these people find out differently.

The small things in life can make a huge difference. Your mind and body when working in unison are an unbeatable team, when they are focused on any task including your safety. Taking responsibility for your personal safety and for the safety of your loved ones means simply being alert to obvious dangerous situations or potential criminal threats. It also means being more conscious at all times of harm that could come form unsuspecting places.  In today’s society too many of us are preoccupied with our own little world while we are talking or texting on our cell phones, or some other task when we should be mindful and not distracted  from tasks like driving, walking from one place to another, or just knowing  who is around us. When we are distracted by other things we are reducing the ability to watching and sensing our surroundings.

When we are not paying attention, and our mind is distracted this is when the unthinkable happens. This can happen when were are in the house cooking, or going to get mail, or going to the car, or getting cash from the ATM.

While you may not have Spiderman’s spidey sense, but women in particularly have a great sixth sense  they should listen too.  Learn to listen to and trust your gut instincts. If something makes you feel uncomfortable for any reason, there is usually a good reason.  Learn to pay attention to that nagging thought of not entering a house, garage, or building, don’t do it. If something tells you to look around, walk faster or even run, then listen to it. There is usually a reason. Is it not better for strangers to wonder if you’re “odd” than to end up in a grave or as the next crime victim.
