5. Personal safety is always paramount, and hence women must carry defense mechanism with themselves, for example, a pepper spray or personal safety alarms.

6. Keep your money at different and unexpected places rather than keeping all your money in one place

8. You must never leave home unprepared. Always do your homework before visiting a place. Try to gain as much information as you can about the place.

9. Learn to say no to people. Always trust your instincts, if you do not get positive vibes from anyone, then don’t go with them. Prevention is better than cure, so always maintain distance from such people.
