The growing rate of crimes against women has meant that personal safety is now paramount. Whether you’re travelling in your office cab or driving your own car, walking in an unknown street or the lane just near your house, a woman needs to be vigilant every moment. She should always be aware of her surroundings and look for potential threats.
Here are some safety tips that’ll help you be on guard and stay safe at all times.
1. Be cautious with your social media updates. Remember, there’s no lack of stalkers, so avoid social media check-ins when you’re out somewhere. But, if you’re eager to do it, try to check in when you’re leaving the place, not right after you enter.
2. Always carry emergency cash with you so that you can avoid withdrawing money from the ATM when you’re alone. Keep it in a secret pocket in the handbag or elsewhere so that you can reach home safe even if you happen to lose your purse to a goon.
3. Ensure that your phone is always charged, and keep emergency phone numbers on speed dial. Keep sufficient credit balance to call people in case you get stranded on your way back home after a night-shift at the workplace.
4. Always remember to carry self-defense aids like pepper spray, open-assist knife, alarm key chain or a loud whistle to protect yourself from attacks. Also, it’s better to learn some self-defense techniques to protect yourself during an attack.
