SMART Peace of mind
Even the most zen and grounded amongst us worry from time to time, with a seemingly endless volley of challenges fired our way by an increasingly stressful and demanding world. Life is a highly nuanced experience and, while we are more or less programmed to cultivate a certain degree of adaptability and robustness, our environment along with factors and conditions such as the economy and crime rates inevitably affect our peace of mind and emotional wellbeing. In addition, the rise of the Internet and assorted digital media have meant that we are much more acutely aware of issues facing other parts of the world, as well as the planet as a whole, such as climate change.
A 2021 survey by Ipsos titled “What worries the world?” found that a staggering 25% of the surveyed population globally worried about crime and violence. Unsurprisingly, at the time that the survey was conducted (the final quarter of 2021), the COVID-19 pandemic led in terms of what people worry about, followed by concerns over unemployment (which came out top for South Africa in the breakdown of what people worry about most per country), poverty and social inequality, financial and political corruption and, of course, rising crime rates.
The are many things that we don’t have a whole lot of control over, for example the state of the economy or what the weather will be like tomorrow. Fortunately, there are also things that we can directly influence, things in which we have a say, such as who is voted into office, and whether or not we recycle and take steps to help minimise our impact on the environment.
While crime rates are generally beyond our control since it’s usually a by-product of a wide variety of socio-economic and socio-political factors, we are fortunate to be living in an era marked by unprecedented technological innovation, giving us the tools to better protect ourselves, our families and our homes against criminals.
