How do you practice becoming more aware?
It’s likely that this happened to most of you at one point or another. A phone call, text, or TV show distracted you from cooking dinner… until the smell of something burning drifts your way. It’s easy to be distracted, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Being alertness and awareness are not innate behavior traits for most of us. It takes practice to establish good situational awareness and to become more aware of your surroundings, whether you’re cooking, driving, or trying to keep yourself or your family safe.
It’s actually simpler than you might think. Keep your head up, open your eyes and look around. To get started, when walking into a room and give it a quick scan as you sit down to see who is nearby, or to glance in a window as you walk down the street to see who may be walking behind you. By observing the people around you, you’re not as defenseless as you would be if you were totally oblivious of your surroundings.
Step your awareness training up a notch with more specific observation. For instance, take note of a car that passes you as you are driving and then look away. After looking away, would you know the following?
The make, model, and color of the car?
The number on the license plate?
How many doors are on the car?
The gender of the driver and any passengers?
Take a Moment to Be Aware, you’ll be surprised on how much you can retain.
Similarly an approach to practice good situational awareness can be taken the next time you’re out shopping. Take a moment to observe the people you pass, try describing them to yourself, and check to see how accurately you were able to describe them. Or, simply sit down, close your eyes, and try to visualize every aspect of your living room. By taking the time to train yourself to become more aware of your surroundings, you’ll naturally start paying more attention to them within a few weeks, decreasing your chances of becoming a victim, should the unexpected occur.
