As the New Year begins, and many individuals create their New Year’s resolutions, setting goals and bucket lists. Among those resolutions are often items for better health – cut our sugar, quit smoking, train for a 5K. Often, people will set goals of a more personal nature – have date nights with significant other more often, read new (or classic) books, go out with friends regularly.
However, what if there was a way to merge the resolution to take care of your physical wellness, as well as your personal wellbeing? By taking control of your hearing health, you can. For those who are on the fence, or have never considered their hearing health, taking the steps to improve their hearing can do more than just that.
It’s hard to hold a conversation if you constantly have a high-pitched ringing in your ear. While many will experience this from time to time, particularly after a loud event, there are more than 25 million in the United States who experience these symptoms, known as tinnitus.
While there is no cure, per se, for tinnitus, there are many treatment options available to help you manage your symptoms.
Hearing loss does not fit into one mold. It can affect anyone at any age. With the increase in mobile listening devices being used, more people under the age of 40 are experiencing hearing loss. If left untreated, hearing loss can affect communication skills and cognitive development.
Technology today now includes hearing aids that are so small and well hidden, that most would not even know they are there. There are devices that are rechargeable, so you don’t need to worry about changing hearing aid batteries. There are devices that pair seamlessly with smartphones.
With today’s new technological advances and painless hearing evaluation, taking control of your hearing health isn’t hard to do.
A HEARING AID SUCCESS STORY
Bryan Caswell is a renowned chef and owner of five Texas restaurants and has been featured on Food Network. He is a husband and father of four young children. And, he is an Oticon Opn wearer.
In everyday life, communication is essential. However, in a noisy setting such as a restaurant kitchen, hearing issues can increase frustration. Bryan recently shared his experiences of life in the restaurant industry before hearing aids, and how much it has improved his communication skills after he began wearing the Oticon Opn hearing aids.
