The cure for complacency is a deliberate effort to apply safety strategies in the absence of perceived danger. Remember, the time that you are at greatest risk is when you least expect something bad is about to happen. The key is to form safety habits that you do every day until they override your former unsafe behaviors and become instinctive. Start by doing a risk assessment of your life and lifestyle. When are you most susceptible to violent or predatory situations? Consider prevention situations at home, while commuting, at work, while traveling, and while carrying out your daily activities. Adopt safety tactics that you are comfortable with and deliberately do them over and over on consistent basis in the absence of perceived danger until they become automated safety habits.
Complacency is like a chronic illness that you must treat daily to maintain your health. You are never cured of complacency; it requires constant attention to prevent it from adversely affecting your life.
