PSM [Personal Safety Mindset] DO YOU FEEL SAFE? #personalsafetymindset

First, acknowledge [without becoming fearful], that the very mode of dress that provides utmost relief from the heat/ humidity may offer grab-bag thieves and pickpockets the greatest visibility & access to your pocketbook, handbag, jewelry and other valuables!

Shorts, short dresses, loose-fitting clothes, help to beat the heat; keep you cool, but leaves very little or not many places to “hide” cash/jewelry, valuables.

The following SAFETY STEPS will ensure that you enjoy your summer days SAFELY:


Do this:

Before you go out , stand in front of the mirror.

Observe & FEEL the pressure of your shoulder bag on your body. Walk back and forth. feel /become familiar with the pressure of the strap, bag, and other objects [jewelry etc.] that is in contact with your body.

Direct your senses to the pocket where you have your purse. FEEL the impression[pressure] of purse against your skin.

Feel the sensation of your cell phone pressing against your butt. Have a friend /spouse/ family member remove any of these objects; observe the extent that you become aware, or lose the feel of the object against your body/skin.

Practice and strive to attain and maintain this very high sense of PRESENCE & AWARENESS as you go through the day.

If you go out with friends, agree to be each others’ eyes! Look out for each other. Thats is one very, very effective way to keep yourself and those you are with SAFE.
