It’s the New Year and that means it’s time to get a fresh new start on your hearing care. Here are some steps you can implement to make sure you are kicking the year off right.
- Schedule a hearing test! Find a local hearing care specialist and get your hearing checked. The process is easy and it’s vital to know your hearing levels you in order to make the right decisions going forward.
- Buy ear plugs. You can find them at any drug store and they don’t cost much. Having ear plugs on hand is a great way to ensure your hearing safety. You can read more about ear plugs here: https://www.listenclear.com/when-you-should-use-earplugs-and-why/
- Make plans to stay social. Hearing loss can be an isolating experience, so start making plans to keep yourself socially engaged. Visit a group of friends on a regular basis, call an old friend or family member. Make yourself available and force yourself to be part of the conversation. Exercise! On top of feeling isolated, you are more likely to feel tired due to stress or anxiety from hearing loss. Get moving! It’s a great way to build energy? Have a scheduled exercise time that you commit yourself too.
- Eat Right. Healthy eating doesn’t just help the heart. Good nutrient rich food can also help blood flow through the ears, helping your body to keep your hearing healthy!
Now is the time to plan ahead so you can make 2018 the best year for your hearing health!
