How to Hear Well Into the New Year

A New Year comes with New Year resolutions. Don’t leave out maintaining your hearing health when planning your New Year goals!

Our ears do so much for us that it only seems fair we provide them with the attention and care they deserve. To help you continue to hear well for as long as you can, we’ve put together four tips on maintaining your hearing health into the New Year.

1. Schedule a Check-Up with your Hearing Professional

Even if you don’t feel any symptoms, setting up an appointment for a routine hearing check is very important. Since the chances of developing hearing difficulties increase as you age, it’s good to be on the ball about catching any signs early on.

Check-ups can also determine if you have any obstruction in your ears due to ear wax build-up. If this is the case, you can then take the necessary steps to schedule ear wax removal services.

2. Try Hearing Aids

If you find out you are experiencing hearing difficulties or related conditions, such as tinnitus, try exploring your options in hearing aids.

Modern devices come in discrete sleek designs and have many beneficial features that can support your busy lifestyle. For example, you can get a hearing aid with Bluetooth connectivity to answer phone calls hands-free.

3. Do Exercises that Support Your Hearing 

Any activity that gets your blood flowing can support the health of your inner ear. However, you can do more targeted exercises to hear better by improving your brain’s ability to focus or comprehend sounds. Examples include:

  • Sound Isolation: Listen to a song and focus on individual sounds, instruments, harmonies, or melodies.
  • Sound Directional Exercises: Close your eyes and have someone talk to you from different areas of the room. Guess their location to improve how you perceive sound directions.
  • Practice Listening: Listen to someone read aloud and repeat back what you heard. As you get better, try this exercise in a noisy environment.

4. Take Supplements to Improve Hearing 

Taking certain supplements on a regular basis can prevent or delay hearing difficulties. The main three with scientific research backing them are:

  • Magnesium: Protects against noise-induced conditions.
  • Folic Acid: Delays age-related hearing difficulties.
  • Fish Oil: Reduces chances of age-related hearing difficulties in adults over 50.
