Awareness of your self and surroundings begins with getting your head up!
Out of where or what you may ask?
Out of your book, your magazine, your MP3 player, your cell phone!!
Yes, that's right. Get your eyes up. Focus on your surroundings not your texts, tweets or FaceBook status. Your life may just depend
TIP: Avoid using headphones. Headphones seal off the world from you. Don't use them in unsafe areas or at night when going to your car. Use common sense here. And if you run while listening to music, keep your head on a swivel.
