11 Survival Hacks That Might Save Your Life… You MUST Remember #9

No one wants to imagine themselves in a life or death situation, and hopefully, you never will be. But in the rare event that your life is being threatened by an attacker, you want to know exactly what to do. Luckily, we've got 11 great tips right here.

From causing a scene to escaping restraints, these tricks could potentially save your life in a threatening situation. It might be a scary prospect to consider, but we promise: You'll feel better about it if you've done the necessary work to prepare yourself.

#1. Use Your Head

Our heads are a lot tougher and harder than you might think. If someone is attacking you, a swift headbutt to the nose should, at the very least, set them back a bit.

#2. Throw Your Stuff Around

If someone who is attempting to abduct you tries to put you in their car, don't go in without a fight. If it seems like you might lose, scatter your belongings (like phone, keys, wallet) around, so that the police can gather the evidence and have a better chance of finding where you are

#3. Keep Moving

Take it from Muhammad Ali: The hardest target is a moving target. If you're able to keep moving, you can make things pretty hard for your attacker.

#4. Go For The Kitchen

If someone has entered your home, try your best to fight your way to the kitchen. After all, there are a lot of potential weapons in there -- and your attacker doesn't know where any of them are.

#5. Learn Your Pressure Points

If you know exactly where to strike someone that's hurting you, a fight can be over before it's even started.

#6. Give Up Your Wallet

Muggers are often more interested in your money than actually hurting you -- unless you put up a fight. If they want your money, just give it to them and hope that they go away.
