There are so many negative things that we see on the news nowadays – at least, that’s what they show us because that’s what makes the headlines. But because of this, we focus so much on all of the bad, and dangerous things and people in the world – but there is so much good, and we need to remember that because it’s not shown that much anymore.
Your home is where you should feel the safest. It’s your own personal sanctuary that you share with the ones you love. There is no reason you shouldn’t feel safe there, but if you need more of a sense of security – here’s how you can have that.
Always remember to remove flyers from your doorstep.
Even if you aren’t interested in all the flyers and leaflets that get left on your doorstep – remove them and recycle them. If any bad people see that there’s a build-up, they may assume that you’re on holiday and the house is empty, which is perfect for them. And if you really are going away, ask a neighbor to remove them for you.
Get up to date on your alarms.
There are so many different types of alarm systems that you can have installed in your home; there is no reason not to feel safe again. You can have a burglar alarm fitted, as well as the essential fire alarm, an intrusion detector, and even a CCTV camera if you want that extra security. And thanks to today’s technology, you can have access to all of this on your phone or android.
Have light timers installed?
Have your lights set on a timer so that when you leave, the lights either stay on or are programmed to switch on around 30 minutes after you have left. This will imply to anyone watching that someone is in your home and moving around still awake. Preventing any bad people from getting ideas of entering your home when you’re not there.
Keep your landscaping neat and trimmed.
This isn’t just to look pretty, but it will prevent any people from trying to hide. If you have a lot of foliage that runs alongside the windows of your home, then you won’t be able to have a clear view of what’s going on outside, and this can be a rather big disadvantage for you. So keep everything contained so it doesn’t cause a visual obstruction.
Always shout and wave goodbye when you leave the house.
It doesn’t matter if no one else is in the home with you. On the rare occasion that someone is watching your house, waiting for you to leave so they can break in – they won’t have that clear light they are expecting because it will appear as though someone is in the home even when you’re not.
As you can see, there are plenty of simple tricks that will just give you more of a sense of control, and that power should make you feel a whole lot more comfortable again.
