10 Helpful Hacks That May End Up Saving Your Life One Day (14 Pics)

Some of us are too lazy to move from a chair and haven’t actually picked up anything heavier than a fork since 2010. Others are adrenalin junkies and love to experiment with their limits. But one thing is mutual for all the groups – we all love our life and we all have that need to protect ourselves and people around us. Whatever we do, we need to worry about our safety.

Worrying about the protection and safety some people call fear but even if that is caused by fear it is actually smart to worry about that sort of things. That is why we found 10 hacks that could probably save your life.

Follow Your Instinct!

This is the most basic thing. It is a product of evolution and we should really sometimes listen to it!

When something is not quite right, your body knows. That is why it is trying to tell you that there is some danger around you. The sad thing is that we stopped trusting our instinct.

Self-Defense

You should train some sort of self-defense. That can always come in handy. However, if you don’t know much about fighting, and you are not interested in learning any martial art, there is one thing that always works.

Always go to the attacker’s groin area. That will do some serious harm to the attacker and give you some time to run for help.

A Dangerous Cab Driver

Many people use cabs to get around the city. However, cabs are not that safe as you think. Cab drivers are just people like you and me, and people are unpredictable. You never know what to expect from a stranger.

If you ever notice that your driver is a bit strange, just call someone and start talking about your location. That way, the driver knows you have a phone, and that people know about your location.

Never Trust A Toilet!

If you ever stay in a hotel, or you go to someone you don’t know well, it is a good idea to put rolled up tissue over the toilet. No matter how clean everything around you looks.

Swimming

Swimming in the ocean can be really dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. The most dangerous things there are riptides. If it happens to you to get caught by a riptide, don’t swim towards the shore. You will only get further from it. Swim parallel to the shore. That is the best way to get back to safety.

Fire

If you ever find yourself trapped in a fire, hit the dirt. Get down and crawl to safety. Heat goes up and oxygen goes down. That way you will have more oxygen and you won’t faint.

Parking Lot

If you ever find yourself alone in a parking lot, late at night, walk with your keys in your hands. That way you can get into your car faster and drive off.

Texting and Walking

Texting while walking down the street can get you killed. While you are trying to write and read messages you disconnect yourself from your surroundings. That way you make yourself an easy target for a potential accident.
