HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR HEARING?

Reasons why maintaining good ear health is important.

1. Supports Social Interactions

When you can hear others, it can be easier to socialise and keep you from isolating yourself (which may indicate depression). This is because, besides hearing others clearly, which allows conversations to flow naturally, hearing also helps you pick up on social cues. Auditory social cues can include understanding the appropriate tone and volume for a situation or something like a sigh that indicates someone’s emotions.

2. Keeps Us Safe

The sounds around you can warn you of potential danger. Hearing fire alarms or a car horn on the street can help you take the appropriate action to avoid an incident. Being able to hear clearly from both ears helps you detect the direction a sound is coming from. It also prevents hearing strain, which can make conversations tiring.

3. Helps with Memory

Hearing is a key component of our brain’s recall, as background sounds can help us retain information about an experience. Some memories also revolve around sounds, such as music from a band or a family member singing.¬†A study¬†found that older adults with hearing changes were 24% more likely to experience challenges in cognitive ability, memory issues being the first symptom.

4. Experience Simple Pleasures

Besides listening to music or going to the theatre, hearing allows you to experience everyday sounds around you, potentially contributing to a higher quality of life. Examples include birds chirping or the rustling of leaves in the wind when you are outside. It provides you with an additional way to experience your environment and appreciate the little things in life.

Final Thoughts

Hearing allows us to perceive sounds and noises around us, contributing to how we learn from experiences. Allowing your brain to process the sounds around you can improve your quality of life socially and personally. With all the new technologies available to support your hearing, you can find a solution to the changes in your hearing.
