Do you ever wonder what your hearing loss will cost you? It’s easy to think a decline in hearing is normal as a person grows older, so why not just ignore it? There is probably no reason to worry about it, right? That’s all assuming you even know you have hearing loss in the first place.
When you workout your ears, are you working out your mind too? Sound filtering is the phrase we use when talking about how focusing on something essential and filtering out the sound distractions in the room. Exercising this skill keeps it sharp and that means you are able to understand a conversation even in a noisy space.
Is your hearing loss leaving you feeling just a little less than? Less than intelligent, perhaps, because you must fight to stay involved in every conversation. How about a little alone? It probably seems like your friends and family are avoiding you. Maybe hearing loss has left you devoid of energy. Just the effort to hear and comprehend every sound is exhausting.
