On the subject of self defense and personal awareness there is a lot to be said. When you bring up the topic of self defense its easy to think about things like guns, knives and marital arts. Most people go right to the altercation.
If you think that self defense is all about the violent interaction between two individuals, well, you are just reading the end of the story.
The truth about self defense is that it starts in the home. Defending yourself is part of every decision you make throughout the day. You may not look at life that way but your intuition and your animal mind most certainly looks at it that way.
We have only been living in relative peace for 100 years or so. Before then it was a history of wars, invaders and settling the western part of the U.S and it was all brutal.
The time of day that you travel is a huge part of self defense. This is something that you need to understand. The difference in threats when traveling between 6-10am compared to 6-10pm are like night in day, literally and figuratively.
This is an incredible tool if you are looking to travel safe. Even highway travel is better done earlier.
You should always be aware of where you are going, as well. So often we trust Google to take us everywhere. The app tells us where to go and we just follow it. Do you ever consider where you might wind up or what neighborhood you are going through?
When talking about self defense, situational awareness and safe travel, you need to understand that every decision you make has bearing on the situation that you put yourself in. Its not all about guns and boxing. So take the time and map your travel while being sure to travel at safe times.
