We cannot eliminate the concept of danger and emergencies altogether from our life. After all, life is nothing but a series of unimagined events; sometimes fun, sometimes surprising, and at times dangerous. But not always do you come across emergencies that would be fatal. In most cases, a little presence of mind and a lot more smartness could get you out of the danger all good.
You would come across tons of articles trying to tell you how to guard yourself in times of emergencies. Well, they are all good. After all, is there anything like being too safe? Each person has a right to feel safe, secure, and protected when they step out into the world that’s alien to them. And through this article, we will walk you through just 3 ways that can help you get out of the emergency in a balanced way.
Let’s see them.
1. Keep your nerves calm.
Pace yourself and relax. We know that’s the most contradictory and stupid thing to say to a person when they are faced with danger. But, you have heard this numerous times and we will say it again. Keep calm and think rationally. If you don’t pace yourself then, your mind wouldn’t make rational or let’s say even viable decisions. You would end up with a pounding heart, sweaty hands, fear gripping you, and no way to get out of that danger.
It’s normal to be frightened but it’s also within us humans to gather ourselves and face every situation courageously. Great ideas will strike you once you begin to think from a calm mind.
Presence of mind can save you, worry wouldn’t.
2. Always carry a protectant.
The world may be filled with nice people all around. But there always is a rotten apple amongst us and we never know it until we are the victims on their blade. It’s always a smart way to be safe rather than being sorry. A pepper spray or a pocket knife could go a long way in protecting you. It would get you out of the possible danger and give you time to react smartly. Moreover, it’s always a good thing to be able to protect ourselves. When they say, learn martial arts skills, it’s not to harm others but to protect ourselves. Don’t wait for the danger to arrive to make you realize that.
