Hello, I believe that situational awareness and mindset are very important when discussing self-defense. I will not speak for everyone, but I know my mind tends to wander when I am out and about and enough attention to my environment is not always paid. Can you offer any tips on how to train oneself to pay better attention to our surroundings? On a related note, for what should we be watching? What warning signs should we be seeking? I would much rather avoid an issue than survive one.
