Do you have some fun plans with your friends and family for the big game? When it comes to enjoying the super bowl, whether you’re at the stadium, watching at a sports bar, or sitting in your living room, hearing loss can feel like it gets in the way. Here are some steps you can take to make game day more enjoyable, even with hearing loss:
- Keep captions on – Captions ensure that everyone watching can keep up with the commentary.
- Take regular breaks – There isn’t much you can do about noise at the bar or in a stadium, but you can find a quiet place to occasionally take a break and let your mind rest. Hearing loss can cause added stress on the brain and giving yourself a break is a great way to keep up with the action.
- Limit ambient noise – If you are hosting a party at your house, try to limit the ambient noise. Lots of different sounds at once can be frustrating for people with hearing loss making it difficult to focus on what’s being said.
- Visit with a hearing care professional and see if there are any devices that can help you. Don’t strain to hear what’s going on when there are so many excellent technical options.
