Preparedness is the key to protecting yourself.
- Do you have any weapons? If you do, do you practice with them often and carry them with you?
- Book some self-defence classes for you and your family: Building your fighting or reaction skills is important. With repetition, your muscle memory will change.
- Play the “what if” game constantly: What if you hear someone in the house? What if someone tries to grab you? What will you do? How will you do it? This technique teaches your brain to look for obstacles and solutions.
- Have safety “what if” plans: Discuss the “what if” plans with your family and make a game out of practising.
Trust your gut feelings and stay off your phone!
