Hearing is one of our most important senses and one that we often don’t appreciate or safeguard until it’s too late. Socially, mentally and physically, our lives are improved with good hearing. If you’re not safeguarding your hearing or ignoring your hearing loss, you are compromising your overall health in ways you might not have realized. Here are just a few of the many advantages of healthy hearing:

Improved Physical Health

After acquiring hearing aids, 21 percent of individuals who responded to a Hear The World Foundation survey reported exercising more often. And at least once every week, 34 percent of participants reported engaging in some sporting activity.

Better Mental Health

According to studies by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, hearing impairment has been linked to clinical depression, and also an increased risk of suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Luckily, many of these issues can be prevented or even reversed by using hearing aids.

Improved Relationships

When you’re in a relationship, nothing is more essential than communication. This is especially true with family and friends. Aggravation, miscommunication, and ill will can come from hearing impairment. When you’re in public places that have a lot of background noise, wearing hearing aids will allow you to continue to participate in conversations.

Improved Cognitive Abilities

A study released in 2016 found that hearing aids can improve brain function in individuals with hearing loss. Cognition is disrupted by hearing loss as the brain makes use of additional resources trying to hear and understand.

Less Tinnitus Symptoms

People who cope with hearing impairment will be able to hear sounds they previously couldn’t when they use hearing aids. Tinnitus symptoms can be hidden by a hearing aid’s ability to increase stimulus between the brain and auditory pathways. Hearing aids also offer volume controls that allow the wearer to effectively drown out tinnitus sounds.

Reduced Fatigue

If you’re spending more energy than normal to listen to and comprehend everyday conversations, it can create stress, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and even exhaustion. As well as helping you effectively communicate, hearing aids also help you spend less energy attempting to hear.

Greater Security

Better hearing means you will be able to respond to critical sounds and noises that occur in your daily life. Sirens, alarms, cell phones, car horns, and other traffic noises indicating approaching traffic, need to be heard and hearing aids can help you do that.

Reduced Headaches

Headaches and even migraines commonly come with tinnitus which can, in turn, make the tinnitus symptoms even worse. The intensity and frequency of headaches can be minimized by wearing hearing aids which reduce tinnitus symptoms.

Improved Speech

To ensure your children learn vital language and enunciation skills, it is imperative to immediately treat any hearing impairment experienced by young children who are still establishing these skills. There might be fluid in the child’s inner middle ears canal which may require a tube to be surgically implanted for drainage. For more serious conditions, children could be fitted with hearing aids to enhance their hearing and ensure they’re learning to speak clearly and accurately.

Even adults articulate and communicate better when they hear clearly.

Improved Confidence in The Workplace

If you’re going to complete your everyday work responsibilities competently, you need to be able to hear. Not being able to hear important conversations with your coworkers can result in misunderstandings, missed deadlines, and tasks going unfinished. Using hearing aids can help you prevent these problems, and allow you to take greater pride and satisfaction in your career. Better workplace communication and increased production will also elevate the attitude of your coworkers.

You should contact your local hearing professional if you believe hearing loss is causing you to miss out on essential conversations. They can help you decide if hearing aids will help you hear better and enhance your overall health.
