There are lots of ways to feel more youthful. But protecting your hearing is one way that is often ignored.

For years, improving and extending your life has been linked to a good diet and exercise. It also helps counter heart disease, cancer, and improves weight control. But good hearing does just as much to keep you healthy and young.

The advantages you’re not considering about hearing maintenance

Take a look at all of the ways that healthy hearing improves confidence, provides a better love life, and helps you stay young.

1. Connecting in a more healthy way

Individuals with hearing loss often become estranged from society. They seclude themselves from others because of their impairment. How can you communicate during your pickleball match if you have trouble hearing? It’s an easy issue to go undetected until you find you’re estranged from friends, family members, and colleagues. Better hearing leads to more confidence.

2. Increased learning

Many individuals stimulate their minds by going back to college. You will learn better and enjoy yourself more when you’re in school if you have good hearing. You won’t need to sit up front and constantly ask your teacher to repeat what they said. You’ll comprehend concepts easier and have a smoother ability to communicate with your fellow students.

3. Better sex

Seniors have stronger social lives if they have normal hearing or wear hearing aids. More independence and better overall health are the results. And, surprisingly, you will also have a far better sex life.

4. Improved blood flow

Exercising is helpful for numerous reasons, and one of them is better hearing. Increased blood flow helps nourish the ears with nutrients that preserve your hearing.

5. Less risk of a fall

Spacial awareness is decreased with hearing loss and that can lead to a loss of balance. Seniors are three times more likely to have a fall with a hearing loss of just 25 decibels than seniors with normal hearing.

6. Better reaction time

Our senses trigger our instincts including reaction time to danger or alerts. You will keep yourself and others around you safer if you can respond quickly to alerts, sirens, fire alarms, and other warnings which good hearing will help you do.

7. Fewer hospital stays

Loss of hearing raises a senior’s danger of accidents, falls, and depression as well as inactivity. Seniors often become hospitalized as a direct or indirect result of depression or accidents.

8. Increased confidence

Difficulty communicating leads to insecurity and lack of confidence. It’s not unusual for a person with this type of confidence issues to steer clear of social gatherings and to seclude themselves. This behavior further isolates the person which creates a repeating cycle.

9. Better job satisfaction

It makes sense that somebody without hearing loss does better on the job. Things like safety measures, instructions, and significant information can get lost. And you’re frequently missing information from your teammates during zoom calls. Good job performance and results depend on participation.

10. Reduced chance of cognitive decline

Due to a loss of social interaction and overall stimulation, hearing loss has been linked to cognitive decline. Cognitive decline is induced in part by shrinkage of the brain which happens as people age. An increased possibility of cognitive decline derives from an increased shrinkage of the brain.

Enjoy a better quality of life

Socializing and communicating with your family members will improve self-confidence, resulting in your ability to go out there and enjoy the things you enjoy doing. If you want to feel youthful, it’s best to deal with your hearing loss and protect your hearing. We can help, contact us.
