Be aware of your surroundings and people around you. Although, like I’ve said, nothing bad has ever happened to me, I have noticed that I have a much more heightened sense of awareness now – and still felt this even when I was back in the UK at Christmas. But that’s no bad thing. It’s really simple, costs nothing, and is effective at making sure you don’t get complacent and open yourself up as an easy target for anything. Whenever I walk anywhere, I am conscious of who is in front and behind me and, if I feel uncomfortable with any of them, I either speed up or slow down my walking which puts distance between us and will also tell you whether or not they have even noticed you, and it just makes it that one step harder for someone to try anything.
