The society we live in is not always a happy place. If you go through the news you can find news about some violent crimes or mishaps almost every day that claims human lives.
Dangers and threats are not new to humankind. Despite facing many dangers and threats in the stone age by the early man here we are today alive, breathing in flesh, taking births, and sharing the given births. All of this was only possible because our ancestors have survived by overcoming all those unfortunates.
Their survival is a kind of inspiration that is passed on to us through generations on how to survive. Humankind does almost anything for their race to survive, in this process some are guilty and some are victims.
Apart from these two categories you can choose a different category by not being guilty or falling prey to the guilty and becoming a victim by ensuring your own safety all the time.
Today’s generations come with many surprises, not always the good ones. Sometimes these surprises can harm you or take away your beautiful life. Ensuring your own safety must always be your priority for the survival of your generations.
Making sure that you are safe doesn’t happen by being watchful or avoiding threats, it is only achieved when you know how to find ways to eliminate the threats.
Where do you come across threats?
Threats are everywhere but to be very specific, well specifically speaking also threats are everywhere. Sometimes you are not even safe in your backyard. So being vigilant all the time can ensure your safety.
Visiting Unknown places
There may be many reasons both personally and professionally which sometimes depend on you visiting some unknown place for the first time.
In such cases doing a background check about the area and surroundings can be very helpful before you begin your journey. Most tourists and travelers face different kinds of threats very often because of not doing proper research about the place they are visiting. Theft, mugging, and in some cases sexual assault are the most common types of safety issues faced by many visitors in new places.
It is our responsibility too to look out for our own safety and security, it is not like we are all Lois Lane for the Man of Steel to come to our rescue in a terrorism-prone location.
Research about the place and its dangers like the places to avoid or else what can be the best time to visit a particular location, types of crimes, and crime-prone areas to have a safe trip.
Well, we cannot predict natural disasters that can cause accidents or unfortunate accidents, or a plane hijack while traveling. What we can do is be extra attentive while traveling in a threat-prone area.
If you are using a mode of public transport make sure that all your belongings are safe and avoid unnecessary interactions with people you find strange. You must have heard this countless times but still repeating it can cause no harm, Do not eat or accept any kind of food from strangers.
If you traveling solo or with a company in your vehicle try to look for the best routes which have access to basic resources in case you get stranded and don’t prefer routes that might be in risk-prone zones or routes with less mobility and no surveillance mostly in the nights. It is better to avoid such routes in daylight too.
If you still don’t trust this methodology try watching horror and crime thriller movies because in many movies all unwanted things happen in such passages only. After all, movies are mostly based on real-life experiences and real incidents modified and shown to the audiences.
Walking on the Streets
Imagine yourself taking a stroll on the streets in some known or unknown location to you or maybe in your neighborhood to enjoy the weather. But life isn’t always fair, there are different kinds of threats on the streets. For example, a lorry or a truck can run over you, or else someone might kidnap you for a ransom or your organs and the scariest one among them is sighting a psycho killer like in the movie series Saw.
There is nothing much we can do if we see a psycho killer but at least we can avoid other mishaps by staying sharp and attentive while enjoying the drizzles or a cool breeze. Try not to stroll in dark places which are not inhabitant and which doesn’t have surveillance.
Most teenagers and youth get excited when they came across a mysterious place. I know life is an adventure and everyone should experience the adrenaline rush but do you really want to risk it all just to click some snaps for your snapshot story.
In your Backyards
Most people say having a beautiful home is like staying in heaven without any worries. Many individuals feel very safe and secure while they are at their homes. Houses are believed to be foolproof to all kinds of threats and one of the secured known locations.
In my defense, I don’t think Dominic Toretto or the cast of Conjuring would agree with the above statement. But bombings and ghosts only happen to be in movies that can destroy homes and houses.
There are few threats that can take place even while you are in your house. Threats like thefts, homicide, and sometimes the house blowing up can happen and claim lives too on few occasions.
To make your house secured enough install CCTV surveillance and alarm systems which can scare off the intruders and giving you some protection. Install proper ventilation system and fire alarm systems too to avoid getting blown up.
