Here Are Simple Steps To Remarkably Improve Utah Hearing
Hearing loss is a big deal and should be taken seriously. In Utah, we are pretty audibly healthy with only 15-16.9% of us having hearing issues, but we can always improve. I SAID WE CAN ALWAYS... never mind.
I remember talking to a doctor who had come to record an interview about cochlear implants. When we were done, he leaned in and told me that much of hearing loss has to do with our minds. He smiled and said a lot of times partners have learned to screen out information they don’t want to hear from one another.
So, yes get tested and yes see a professional if you are concerned, but on top of that what can you do to improve your hearing? Here are a few tips from Boots Hearing Care:
The Sound of Silence Picture this: You, in a quiet room, meditating like a Zen master. It's not just an escape from the daily grind; it's also your secret weapon to sharpen your ears. Meditation, with its deep breaths and peaceful vibes, gets your brain zeroed in on your senses, all while you're calmly contemplating whether your fridge motor is actually humming "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen.
Exercise Your Ears Yes, regular old exercise. You don’t have to focus on the ears, although you could start a new exercise craze. Get your blood flowing and your heart circulating. My Hearing Centers found,
Seniors who were active around 3 hours a week had far lower rates of hearing loss than seniors who didn't exercise at all.
Use them or Lose them You remember that old adage? Wait, maybe it was, "use it or lose it", which fits better anyway because you are not going to lose your ears, but if you use your hearing you can help fine-tune it. Try putting music on in a quiet room and walking around your house while listening. Then try to identify certain words or instruments in the music.
Butt Out the Noise We've all heard about the link between smoking and health issues, but did you know it's also causing a haze for your hearing? So, toss those cigarettes aside and savor the sweet sound of your lungs rejoicing. Plus, you'll be saving enough money to buy that fancy pair of noise-canceling headphones you've been eyeing!
Yoga for Your Ears Downward dog, meet eardrum delight! Yoga isn't just about bending like a pretzel; it's about enhancing circulation, including to your head. So, stretch and twist your way to auditory enlightenment– and don't forget to channel your inner tree pose when you're eavesdropping on your neighbor's juicy gossip!
Dial Down the Volume Sure blasting your favorite tunes is pure ecstasy. But your ears will thank you if you keep the decibels below the "rock concert" threshold. If not, you might end up attending future concerts with a pair of oversized, bedazzled earmuffs as your plus-one.
Wax On, Wax Off Earwax buildup? A quick trip to the ear specialist will have your hearing crystal clear, and you can finally hear your cat's conspiracy theories about the vacuum cleaner.
In the end, improving your hearing can be both enlightening and entertaining. So, whether you're striking a yoga pose, meditating like a guru, or simply turning down the volume, your ears are in for a treat. With these tips, you'll be eavesdropping on your aged uncle's conspiracy theories in no time – just don't tell them where you heard it from.
