1. Don't wear headphones: Your ears are an important piece of sensing danger. You may even consider heightening your hearing through listening techniques. 2. Carry a Defense Weapon: You have two hands you them wisely. Carry pepper spray in one hand and another defense weapon in the other to strike the perpetrators if needed. 3. Wear Running Shoes: Bring an extra pair of shoes with you to work. There is nothing more vulnerable than having to run from an attacker in high heels. 4. Take Basic Self Defense: You don't have to spend $1,000 and 3 months of training to learn basic self defense. However, I would recommend taking a physical class. There's nothing like hands on experience. 5. Learn How to Use a Weapon: Remember, anyone willing to attack a women, will likely have a weapon. A weapon is an advantage. It levels the playing field. But you must know how to properly use it. Practice using your defense equipment and make it a good habit to carry with you daily. Preparedness is the greatest form of confidence.
