Heighten Your Safety: Master Situational Awareness

As children, we naturally learn to pay attention to perceived threats to stay safe. This heightened state of being is called “situational awareness.” All our experiences, knowledge, and intuition contribute to this skill, but the pressures and distractions of everyday life conspire to dull our senses and put us at risk.

What can you do about it? You need to open your eyes to what is around you, whether you are driving or walking to work, sitting in your workspace, or out with family and friends. The days of living in a bubble are over and unsafe. You need to empower and train yourself to identify possible dangers and hazards with strangers, clients, or co-workers.

Do not get surprised or caught off guard by potential predators. Be aware of all your surroundings and be prepared to expect the unexpected.
