Have you ever been locked out of your own home? It can be embarrassing, and even dangerous. This can be a stressful and inconvenient situation, and it takes time and hassle to get back inside. Here we have put together some precautions you should take to avoid this.
Keep Track of Your Keys
This is a straightforward point. Use a system to keep your keys in the same place all the time, for example a key hook by the door.
Develop a Checking Habit
To ensure you never forget important items when leaving the house, make a mental note every time. For example: “I’ve got my wallet, keys and phone”. You will find this greatly reduces the chances of locking yourself out. You can even say this out loud if it helps reduce your anxiety about forgetting.
Hold Your Keys in Your Hand
If you’ve forgotten something inside the house and return to grab it, keep the keys in your hand – don’t put them down on a table or you might forget to pick them back up before you leave again.
