Self Defence Tip 2: Companionship Is Essential
While being alone is important to your sanity, it may be too risky in some situations. For example, during the day in a public park, a walk alone has no problem as there are others around that could help in a situation in which you need the help.
On the other hand, if you were to decide that a walk in the park is ideal for the middle of the night that may not be. If you do find the need to get out of the house or are going to be in an area where you will be alone, there are several things to do. First, bring along a dog if you have one. Even smaller dogs pose a problem to a possible attacker because they will defend you in a bad situation.
If you do not have one, be sure to let someone know where you are going and carry a cell phone with you. Keep it readily accessible, even in your hand so if someone should approach you can respond fast!
