Are you Pretty Loaded?

You might not be, yet, but by the end of this episode you might be inspired to get there. Feeling safe and staying that way can be as simple as paying closer attention to the world around you.

Hard to believe?

Beth Warford created Pretty Loaded¬†as a direct response to a scary encounter she had with some young buck who’d stalked her. Now, she and her small team are creating situational awareness PSAs and providing training internationally.

After you watch a few of their videos, you’ll see how becoming more aware (condition yellow) really can keep you safe.

Her down-to-earth, practical approach to self-defense is a perfect fit for the Womanly Art of Self-Defense.

Check out this Psychology Today article for more information about the Grayson-Stein Study that Beth mentioned.

Here’s the link to the elevator safety video I mentioned during our chat.
