Having given it some careful thought, I’ve come up with my top ten personal safety tips. These include some old chestnuts, some common sense and some sneaky tricks all designed to keep you safe; furthermore you don’t need to be a martial artist or superman to apply them...
1. Don’t behave like a victim.
It is very easy for people that behave like victims to become victims. Predators are always on the lookout for easy targets so don’t give them one. Behaving like a victim might mean typical indicators such as hunched shoulders and starring at the floor / avoiding eye contact. It can be indicators such as having headphones in (reduced awareness) or having your hands jammed in your pockets (not able to move or fight back freely).
