Survive Crisis No 5 – Someone Is Pointing A Gun At You

“Extreme situations always sound crazy – until you’re in one”

cat-tax-cat-holding-hands-up-gun-pointing-at-him-788789

This is one situation none of us ever want to be in. You think it wont happen to you but you can be blindsided by the unexpected at any place and time.

a. According to Steve Kardian director of the NY Defend University and former police detective “If it’s a robbery, give up the goods immediately.”
Do not challenge them. Treat it like a business deal.
Unless you think you are about to be shot do not go for the gun. Fake an illness like you are about to throw up or have a heart attack. Then get out of there as fast as you can

b. If you hear shots. ‘Believe it’ those shots are probably from a gun not a vehicle back firing. If you have only heart the noise but have not seen the shooter you still have time to run in the opposite direction.
If you have seen the shooter or worse he or she has seen you put something large between you and the shooter. A Car, a Wall, a Tree (large one) anything that will stop a bullet.
If you feel you must run ‘Zig Zag’ it will make it difficult to put you in the line of fire even for an expert.

c. Be Proactive – Plan ahead. If you have to pass through a dark area that gives you the creeps or walk to your car in a dark dingy car park, through a park that is not well-lit.
Make a plan, visualize where you can escape to. Work out an escape route just in case.
Your gut instinct plays a bit part so take notice of it and run like hell if you even suspect someone is following you.

One Week To A Healthier You!

We have spent many years, months, days, minutes abusing our bodies in many different ways. Getting healthy is not going to happen overnight or in a week but its a start.
If you try to change your lifestyle a week at a time, well who knows miracles do happen, you could get to like it, mainly because you are going to actually feel better.
I don’t believe you have to give up all the good things you enjoy, but if you start out with these few things each day, for a week , you may like the results.


Sunday – Go buy a pedometer. they are not expensive and any sports store will have them – If you are able to walk at least 3000 steps a day you are on your way to better fitness according to the American Heart association


Monday – Take the stairs. This is an amazing way to improve your fitness, especially if you find you are out of breath just climbing one set of stairs. Find as many stairs as you can, allow yourself a few extra minutes to get to work so that you are able to take your time and not be late for work.


Tuesday – At the desk all day? – Do a little stretching when you can. Raise your hands above your head, squeeze that buttocks and pull that tummy in, move your head from side to side. With your feet on the ground raise your heels, feel the calves tighten, point your toes and move your feet in a circle one way then the other. Helps keep the body toned and helps the circulation  in your legs


Wednesday – Park the car further away from your work place. Walk just that little extra, every little bit helps.


Thursday – Just because you are doing this extra exercise don’t even begin to think you can eat more. No No! Be very conscious of what you are eating. Great suggestion is –  Stay to the perimeter of the grocery store. All the fresh stuff is usually around the outside of the store, such as meat and vegetables. All the tempting ‘not so good for you’ food is in the middle. Eat natural when you can.


Friday – Ok its the end of the week and you should be feeling good about yourself and you may be going for dinner or a few drinks with your friends or partner. Relax, and do what you enjoy but just don’t overdo it. Maybe only have one glass of wine instead of two and don’t order any bread, maybe stick to a salad (be careful of the dressing you have) and steak and enjoy each bite and good conversation.


Saturday – Take the dog for a longer walk, he is going to love you for it. Maybe you could get that bicycle out of the garage and give it a dust off and go for a ride.

All of these suggestions are really easy to do and you will be amazed that you may have lost a little weight or you are just feeling that little bit better than normal. What ever the case may be, none of these things can hurt you.
Not only will you save on medical bills because of better health you will save on grocery bills, maybe parking bills and your dog will be healthier.
