Use your voice to get yourself out of danger – personal injury lawyer in Midsomer Norton
Your voice is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal if you are in danger. This danger could refer to that from an attacker or mugger, but it could also refer to an accident or even injuring yourself by falling over. If you are in danger and need help, the best way for you to get it is to call for help. On top of this, you can use your voice to frighten off attackers or predators, and attract attention to yourself. Here are some tips for how to use your voice to protect yourself in dangerous situations.
Project your voice
Breathe from your stomach instead of your chest to get more volume to your voice. You may also find it easier to scream in a higher pitch, to get more volume. The more volume you can get the more likely it is that you will be able to attract the attention you need if you are trapped somewhere or need to get someone’s attention quickly.
Scream at an attacker
If you are being attacked and want to disarm your attacker, there are various things you could do to physically block them or knock them over. One of the most effective, though, is simply to scream directly into their ear. This hurts, and will throw them off guard, although it should only be used as a last resort.
Raise your voice to project confidence
Often an attacker will not attack someone who seems confident and able to handle themselves, so project your voice and firmly tell a potential mugger or attacker ‘NO’, or to ‘Stay away’.
Scream for a long time
You are more likely to be noticed if you can hold your scream for as long as possible, to attract all of the attention you possibly can without exerting yourself further.
