ADS Guards aren’t just protecting and guarding Properties for everyone’s safety, we are also an advocate of healthy living. And for that, we are sharing these tips to keep you and your family healthy and be productive everyday.

Although it looks simple, there’s actually a lot more to running than just putting one foot in front of the other. If you’re a beginning runner, you’ll want to know how to start off on the right foot. To run effectively, you need to hold every part of your body in the correct position, from your head right down to your feet.

When you run, you put your body through so much pressure that if your muscles or bones are in the wrong place, it can massively increase your risk of injury. You need to learn to align them properly before you get started. Here are some running tips to get you running like a pro:


Pull your stomach in and keep your torso straight rather than twisting it as you move. Keeping your body very upright is the most effective way to run. Run as though you’re pulling your head as tall as you can to give you a better range of movement. This stance is great for your overall posture and you’re far less likely to get injured.

Keep your back upright and straight with your shoulders relaxed and down. Leaning backwards or forwards as you run will create tension in your lower back, and although leaning forwards can sometimes make you go faster, it will use up more energy, too.

Your legs should move smoothly, with your knees slightly raised and loose, so they can bend easily as your feet hit the floor and absorb the impact. If you pick up your speed, you’ll need to raise your knees higher, too.

Aim to strike the ground with the balls of your feet, rather than landing on your heels or, worse still, scuffing the floor with your feet. You will rarely have both of your feet on the ground at the same time when you run, so your foot strike should be firm with enough strength in your calves and ankles to take the weight of your body.

Don’t be tempted to look at your feet when you run. Keep your head upright and straight, focusing your eyes on the ground about 10ft to 15ft in front of you.

Although most athletics coaches will tell you not to clench your fists, it’s important that you do what you find most comfortable, otherwise, you’ll waste your energy and concentration worrying about how to hold your hands. Many athletes run with open palms because it’s believed to be better for resistance, but if you prefer to cup your hands lightly, that’s ok, too.

Don’t let them swing from side to side across the front of your torso, as this will affect your breathing and tire you out much quicker. Instead, relax, bend your elbows at right angles and just let your arms swing backwards and forwards naturally in the opposite motion to your legs. So if your right leg is going forward, your right arm will swing backwards.

Not all heroes wear capes,Security Guards doesn’t have one​.

For a very long time, Security Guards are mostly robotic and just say monosyllabic words like “Greetings” and “Thank you, Bye!” which make them one of the common employees that usually do their job and not being noticed. That’s a bummer because most of them are working long hours and are vigilant most of the time. Not to mention they’re prone to danger and may risk their lives for the safety of everyone. They are following the orders from the management, thus their lack of interaction with the customers. They should be getting more appreciation for their job and not belittling their profession.

Sometime during the summer of this year, it was a difficult time for me as I’ve been suffering from depression and wanted to give up on everything. I lost my job because of my severe impulsiveness. I got kicked out of my apartment as I can’t pay for my rent anymore. I stayed at my friend’s flat for a while and just roam around the city during the daytime without any destination. I’ve never felt empty in my 25 years of existence. Until this very special night happened to me. I never knew that someone who is a stranger could change the point of view in life. I was shopping inside a Kelly Moore Paints shop because my friend badly needs a renovation in her apartment. I was carrying the items and are grappling to the weight of it and trying so hard to reach the back of my car, One gentleman with a security guard uniform approached me and offered help. He just got out of his shift, so I just looked at him with no reaction and didn’t even thank him. He just smiled and bowed his head. I felt bad, so I got out of the car and asked him if he has time for coffee at the nearest Dunkin Donuts. He didn’t say anything, but I see in his eyes he’d love to.

As we sat and drunk our coffee, he said something alien to my ears. “You seem angry. Or just sad and lonely” with curiosity spread through his already tired face. I was surprised and a bit offended as he made an observation about me and mentioning it as a way of opening a conversation, no hold bars. But I realized, he’s right. I am all those things and I didn’t even notice that. I admired his courage. I didn’t know what came into me but I told him everything about my struggles and hardships. And I admired my courage for doing that as well, As I was telling my story, he carefully listened to me and in my mind, I never had anyone willing to hear my story and be empathetic towards me. That is something I didn’t know I needed, until that night. Then he took a deep breath and readied to say his piece. He mentioned the hardships and how difficult it was for his entire family back in Afghanistan and he knew it was needed for him to be away to earn a living for his family. His words of wisdom did not fail to make me feel better, and he’s not even trying. I didn’t think he knew how precious this exact moment was. He technically saved me from my sorrows and enlighten me with all the possibilities in life. He’s definitely a Superhero without a cape. But as I was drinking my already cold coffee, he made me realize that I need to grab the life I want before life grabs me by my throat. And it’s going to be painful. I didn’t just help a friend with her apartment renovation, but I earned a new one that I will treasure a lot.

Now, I am proudly working as a Sales Executive in the same security agency he’s working with and met a lot of Security Guards that are so humble and so genuine. Just imagine how many other human beings they have saved, not just by securing the perimeter of the property, but by connecting to others who might be having personal issues. At that time, I felt like I was surrounded by real-life Avengers that are always ready to save the world.
