Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. When walking your dogs, make them sit and wait before crossing streets.
This will make them hesitate about running into roads if they ever get loose.
2. If you’re planning a surprise trip for someone, the destination should be the surprise, not the trip.
As nice of a gesture as this can be if someone is not expecting to travel and be away from home, this can be a disappointment and ruin a great trip. Talk it through with the other person before you take it upon yourself to commit a significant amount of their time to something.
3. If you have a friend living in an abusive situation, insist on giving them your spare key.
Having immediate access to a safe house can mean all the difference in the world. Many abusers isolate you and alienate you from your friends and family. They make sure that their abuse can continue uninterrupted because you now have no-one to turn to and nowhere to go.
4. When living alone, plan for your death.
Don’t leave your family and friends with many left behind burdens. Organize and take care of your life so your family and friends don’t have to.
