Quite often we take our ability to hear for granted. When it is compromised, temporarily or permanently, we begin to realize how much we depend on our sense of hearing. Reduced hearing sensitivity can result in wide range of physical and emotional conditions including: irritability, negativism, anger, fatigue, tension, stress, depression, avoidance or withdrawal from social situations and loneliness. Yikes, who wants to be faced with all of that?
Fortunately, there are numerous solutions for those with hearing issues. As Jane and I have stated many times before, the first step in finding those solutions is to begin with a baseline hearing test. This testing will be the guide to finding the correct course of treatment. If hearing instruments are recommended, there are many choices to fit lifestyle and hearing needs. Today’s technology is opening many new avenues to improve listening experiences.
This Holiday Season, resolve to appreciate the gift of hearing. Discover the importance of being able to confidently participate in all conversational situations, watch and understand television, hear on the telephone and listen to music. We have so much to gain by hearing well.
Life sounds great! Enjoy every moment!
