New Year's Resolutions for a Safer 2021
This year, let’s consider some resolutions to make and keep for our personal protection and security.
This year I resolve to:
Attend at least one self-defense course or class;
Keep a regular workout schedule;
Buy or borrow at least one self-defense video or book;
Identify anyone at the door before I open it.
Incorporate a flexibility routine into my workout;
Always, always lock my doors -- including my car doors.
Not get inebriated when I'm out;
Never add real-time info on social media when traveling;
Never drive directly to my house if I even think something is amiss;
Have the mechanic check the belts, hoses and tires on my car;
Re-key the locks on my doors (if you live in a place which has been previously occupied);
Always put on my seat belt when driving;
Never participate in phone surveys;
Never walk directly to my car in the parking lot;
Add weight resistance exercises to my workout;
Shred and destroy mail that contain my personal and financial information;
Find a like-minded workout partner for regular drilling of techniques;
Open my eyes, empty my mind, and take in what's happening around me;
Stay alert, stay safe and enjoy all the fruits of this wonderful life!
Let’s make 2021 a smarter, stronger, safer year.
