Want to enjoy your life to the fullest, and make the golden years the best years of your life? Invest in a quality pair of hearing aids to keep you happy, healthy and wealthy! Many Americans wait between 5 and 7 years to treat their hearing loss, and during this time they experience far more negative effects than they ever imagined. Don’t jeopardize your quality of life, but find the hearing devices that will change your life.
Hearing Aids Keep You Happy
Do you want to be happy? Hearing aids will keep you happy in many ways. You’ll enjoy all the beautiful sounds in your environment, and love listening to music once again. The biggest impact on your happiness will be your ability to communicate easily. When you have hearing loss, you struggle to hear clearly, and strain to follow conversations. Your closest relationships start to suffer as communication breaks down, and what should be a peaceful evening with your loved one could turn into a yelling match full of misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
With hearing aids you’ll also be happy to spend time with your friends. You’ll be able to hear clearly in places with background noise, enjoy noise reduction programs and speech enhancement settings, and easily focus on what you want to hear. You won’t have to ask your friends to repeat themselves, or feel embarrassed for mishearing a question and answering inappropriately. You’ll maintain a great social life, and an improved quality of life.
Hearing Aids Keep You Healthy
Hearing aids are also closely tied to your health. Along with being more social, and having better mental health, wearing hearing aids will keep you more active, and you’ll have less chance of being overweight or developing other health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. You’ll have more energy, get out of the house more often, and have a healthier lifestyle. With hearing aids you’ll enjoy better sleep, along with better cognitive function and strong memory.
Those with hearing aids are far less prone to trips, falls, or accidents when compared to those with untreated hearing loss, and spend far less on health care costs than those living with untreated hearing loss. They visit their doctors less often, and aren’t hospitalized for as many days as those with untreated hearing loss.
Hearing Aids Keep You Wealthy
Did you know that hearing aids can greatly increase your earning power? When it comes to the workplace, clear hearing can really move you ahead. If you struggle to hear, you might be missing key pieces of information, and won’t be doing your job as effectively as you should. Those with hearing loss are more likely to be overlooked for a promotion, receive warnings at work, or even risk being fired. Hearing loss on a jobsite can also be a safety concern, and if you’re not able to hear a coworker shouting, a warning bell, or the backup beep of heavy machinery, you could be putting the safety of everyone on the jobsite at risk.
If you have hearing loss, you’re likely to feel stressed at work, and worried that you can’t keep up with all the things happening around you. You’ll be worried that you’ve missed some important detail, and will wonder if your job performance is up to standard. Straining to hear will take a lot of brain power, and you’ll have a harder time focusing on tasks and be slower to get the job done. You will feel a lot of fatigue, and come home completely exhausted. Those with hearing loss earn less than their hearing peers, and have higher rates of unemployment.
