Women who continue education and training into their adult years lead a more fulfilled life than those who do not. Cooking, self-defense and fitness are a few examples of ways education benefits daily life activities.
Every woman should pursue training that they can do to improve their life, or enjoy as a hobby. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Knowing physical ways to defend against an attack and how to make quick decisions are the most important factors in surviving a violent crime. Women are not the only targets, but they are at a much higher risk than men.
Martial arts training helps a smaller, unarmed woman stand a chance against a larger attacker, and it is also mentally empowering.
Basic automotive mechanics
Changing a tire, checking fluids and using jumper cables come in handy when stranded on the side of the road. Learning preparedness ensures that the proper tools are always stored in the vehicle and easy to locate.
Rather than waiting on help to come, common problems may be diagnosed and remedied to get the car back on the road quickly.
Yoga, tai chi or Pilates
Physical fitness is good for the body and mind, and should be a part of every woman’s weekly activity. Taking a class in yoga or tai chi helps to become acquainted with poses and proper execution necessary to practice at home. Pilates burns fat and teaches discipline from performing advanced techniques.
Stress relief enables better performance in other aspects of daily life that suffer from holding tension and frustration.
Gun safety and training
Rising crime rates have increased the necessity for carrying a hand gun. Obtaining a concealed handgun license enables a woman to legally own and carry a firearm. Tactical carbine training is a great way to get a head start for someone interested in working in law enforcement, SWAT or federal security sectors.
Cooking and nutrition
Stove-top and baking techniques that incorporate good nutrition provide balanced meals for the family. Quick microwave meals and fast food save time but are often made of ingredients not suitable for regular consumption.
Providing nutritional meals ensures the right type of vitamins and nutrients are plentiful. Food preparation techniques are an essential life skill that can be passed on to the next generation.
These are just a few types of unique training classes available to women, but there may be more options locally. Check the Internet, newspaper and bulletin boards to the self-help skills taught in the area. Be open to listening to the ideas of others to ensure knowledge and preparedness.
