Have you ever felt like your hearing loss is just draining you? If so, you’re not alone. Hearing loss can take its toll physically and emotionally, leaving you feeling stressed and spent. Fact is, with hearing loss you have to work harder than the average person to stay engaged. The writers at ‘People Hearing Better’ strongly encourage individuals who struggle with hearing loss to actively consider today’s hearing technologies as a means of helping to prevent hearing loss fatigue:
“People with hearing loss often try to outthink their condition. Meaning if they just try hard enough, concentrate hard enough, they’re going to overcome their hearing loss. They mistakenly assume this makes them strong. In actuality, it weakens them mentally and physically. Taking advantage of today’s hearing technologies is a way to work smarter, not harder.”
They offer several strategies to help alleviate hearing loss fatigue that are worth sharing. For example:
“Be Kind to Yourself–Believe it or not, your attitude might actually help you hear better! A recent study on people with hearing loss fatigue showed that their attitude was more important than the degree of their hearing loss in determining levels of exhaustion.”
