Here we are at the start of a brand new year, an exciting time to think about what the upcoming year might hold! What’s on your list of New Year’s Resolutions? A Google search of the most popular resolutions proves that most people are looking to improve their health in 2017. The top 10 most popular resolutions include losing weight, quitting smoking, working out and eating healthy.
If you or someone you know is resolving to be healthier in 2017, don’t forget to have your hearing checked. A New Year’s Resolution hearing test is a wonderful way to start the New Year and get you on track to a happy and healthy life.
Studies have shown living with hearing loss can lead to isolation, depression, anxiety, and some cognitive impairment. Hearing loss has also been linked to other health issues including diabetes, dementia, and heart disease.
You’ve got nothing to lose
If you’ve been putting off getting your hearing checked for a few years, you likely don’t even realize all that you have been missing. Just having your hearing tested does not automatically mean you’ll need to buy a hearing aid. The trouble you had hearing during holiday parties could’ve been caused by wax build-up. Without a hearing test you’ll never know.
If your test shows you could benefit from hearing aids don’t let the news get you down. Instead think positively about how much your life can improve when you’re able to hear everything again. Recapturing the sounds that you’ve been missing, whether it is the birds chirping outside of your window or family conversation in a restaurant, there may be no resolution more impactful than getting your hearing tested this New Year!
Your hearing allows you to connect and communicate with people every single day. Don’t be like the millions of other Americans who put off getting the simple treatment they deserve for their hearing loss. There’s a big world of sound out there and we you to be a part of it everyday! At Hearing Lab our New Year’s Resolution is to make hearing better easier than ever before.
