Changes in Safety and Security

A post from my travels…

I am in Switzerland skiing with family, and I’ve noticed something interesting: Everyone is buying and wearing helmets this year! Intrigued, I did a bit of asking around and yes, shops have sold more helmets this season than in the last 10 years combined. Now that’s a change!

Coincidentally, before I left, I promised a friend in New York that I would ski with a helmet — and I’m not sure why. I hadn’t heard about how everyone is leaning in this direction. Is it because we are all skiing faster, valuing life more, following a trend or not as concerned as to how we look like?

There is definitely a trend toward wanting to feel safer and more secure. I did some research and found out that many of my friends have signed up for a life insurance policy within the last year. Is this an age thing? Or are we, overall, just becoming more responsible?
