8 Life Hacks That Might Save Your Life One Day

According to the statistics, we live in a time where is calmest the history of mankind.

So, here are 8 simple life hacks that will enhance your security.

  1. Keys, money, and a charged phone

There are no exceptions; these things should always be on you when you’re going out.

Why is it important?

There should be ways for help or you should be able to ride back home. Your phone should be with you to save other people’s lives as it will help you to call the rescue service in an emergency. So, remind to keep your phone charged.

  1. Apologize if you bump into someone

Even if you have not done any wrong to someone on the street, say “sorry” and keep going.

Why is it important?

You may don’t know the person you’ve touched may be carrying a weapon or be drunk or high, may be extremely angry or upset. By saying sorry, you can save yourself.

  1. Always find at least 3 exists

Find 3 exits, wherever you go, it may be a concert, a railway station, or even a school. It can be easy and hard at the same time. Look around the place you are to find exits. Even if there’s only one door you’ll find at least three ways out.

Why is it important?

If something bad happens, you can’t run for finding ways to exit. You’ll be able to move toward one of them almost without thinking if you’ve found and memorized them in advance.

  1. Play the “find a bad guy” game

Take a good look at the people around you when there are many people. You will find people who are too nervous, too angry, or too frightened.

Why is it important?

If someone appears dangerous to you, you can try to keep away from them when you notice them previously.

  1. On an airplane, count the rows to the emergency exit

Count the rows from you to the nearest emergency exit and memorize the number.

Why is it important?

When you know for sure the number of rows between your seat and the exit, you can move toward it counting the headrests if there’s smoke or an emergency issue as the emergency lighting can be too dim to guide you.

  1. Strengthen your wrists

Your wrists get tired fastest if you’ve tried to do chin-ups. Do wrist exercises every day with the help of hand grips.

Why is it important?

A strong grip and trained wrist muscles will allow you to stay safe for as long as it might be needed as there are many potential emergency situations where you may need to hold on to a narrow ledge.

  1. Raise your head, and go slowly

When people sense danger they tend to instinctively lower their head and increase their pace. But, you should confidently raise your chin, and slow down.

Why is it important?

You will become a prey when you follow your first instinct. Who or whatever is threatening you, slow down, raise your head, and look sideways to see the danger with your peripheral vision.

  1. Escaping from a sinking car

First, unbuckle your seat belt and roll the window down to get out of a sinking car. If you don’t have your window open, break the glass with a special tool or any heavy object such as a removable headrest.

Why is it important?

You’ll only lose time trying to open the door which will not budge because of the water pressure. You need to get out of the car  soon as possible as there is only one minute to escape.
