Handy Hacks That Could Actually Save Your Life One Day

1. Pay attention to your instincts


When something just feels wrong, that’s your body’s way of telling you that danger is near. All too often, people fail to pay attention to their instincts, but they are the best indication of how safe you really are.


2. When a stranger gets into your car…


… and tells you to drive them somewhere, there is one thing you can do. Drive your car into a post so that it won’t go anymore. When you do so, you have drawn attention to the situation and the person will want to get away as fast as they can.


3. If someone attacks you, hit them in the groin


When you’re being attacked, it can often be tricky to figure out what to do next. Go straight for their groin. Doing so will stop them right away. That will give you a little time to make your getaway and tell someone about the situation.


4. If your cab driver is acting weird, make a call

We would all like to think that we are always safe in cabs, but that is not always the case. If the driver is acting suspiciously, make a call to someone. Tell them where you are and what type of cab you’re in. Make sure that the driver hears you so that he knows people are aware of your whereabouts.


5. Never walk downstairs with your hands in your pockets


When walking downstairs, you always need to make sure that your hands are out of your pockets… or even on the bannister. If you trip and fall, you will need your arms to save yourself from getting seriously hurt. You can also use them for balance.


6. When you meet a hostile person… run!


This one might sound obvious, but it’s important to remember. When you are in danger, fight or flight mode kicks in. If you freeze, you could make the whole situation worse. When someone is behaving in a hostile way, the best thing you can do is get as far away from them as possible.


7. In a riptide, swim parallel to the shore


Swimming in the sea can be particularly dangerous, especially if you happen to get caught up in a riptide. If you’re not careful, you could get swept away. It might seem counterintuitive, but you need to swim parallel to the shore. It’s the best way to get back to the shore safely.


8. In a fire, stay close to the ground


If you ever find yourself trapped in a burning building, remember this little trick. Rather than trying to run out, get down to the floor and start crawling. There is more oxygen down there and you won’t pass out.


9. Always walk with your car keys in your hand


If you’re picking your car up from a lot at night, you need to make sure that you walk with your keys in your hand. That way, you can get straight into the vehicle and drive off, should anyone approach you or try to do anything to you!


10. Never, ever text and walk


Many of us are guilty of this one! When you’re walking in the street, never stare at your phone. Your text messages can wait. When someone sees you like this, you become an easy target. They may try to steal your phone or hurt you because you’re not paying attention.


11. Never pull a weapon out on someone


No matter how heated a situation is, you should never, ever pull out a weapon on someone. Doing so only makes the fight violent. They will feel threatened and will do the same as you did. That means that someone will end up getting hurt or worse.


12. If you’re ever lost, you need to find water and shelter first


If you ever get seriously lost, the first thing you should do is find yourself some water and shelter. Those are the two main things you need to survive. After you have rehydrated, you will find that it’s easier to find other necessities.


13. Keep your car keys on your bedside table


If anyone ever tries to attack your home, you will have a way of alerting people. Just press the panic button on your car to set off the alarm. Doing so should make all the difference! It will alert people and hopefully someone will call the cops!
