4 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Hearing Health in 2023

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2023. As we create our New Year’s resolutions lists, hearing health should be one of the top items. Research from the Hearing Industries Association shows that 80% of Americans feel hearing loss is serious, but they often ignore it.

This same study further shows the following statistics that show that many are ignoring their hearing health:

  • Only 16% of adults ages 20-69 who need a hearing aid use one
  • 30% of adults over age 70 who need a hearing aid, don’t use one

With so many in need of hearing aid health, it makes good sense to assign hearing health a priority status in 2023. Here are some tips to make that happen.

Don’t Miss These 4 Hearing Health Tips in 2023

1.) Make the call.

Life is busy, and making the call to get your hearing screened can be easily put off – especially if you are nervous about the outcome. Make a commitment to contact a quality audiologist and get your appointment scheduled in the first part of the year. No matter the outcome of the appointment, your hearing health will be significantly improved just by making the call.

2.) Protect yourself.

One of the best resolutions you can make for your hearing health is to turn down your devices. Medical professionals suggest that you protect your hearing health by keeping the sound levels of your devices below 85 decibels. Additional measures you can take include:

  • Wearing hearing protection when loud noises can’t be avoided
  • Taking breaks away from loud sounds when possible
  • Using apps that help you check the sound levels of your surrounding environment

3.) Be honest.

If you are experiencing signs of hearing loss, be honest with yourself and your doctors. Ignoring the problem won’t fix it, and early treatment can actually help you prevent things from getting worse with your hearing. Add “get proactive about your hearing health” to your 2023 New Year’s resolution list to make sure your hearing is a top priority.

4.) Take a holistic view.

Your hearing health is impacted by everything you do for your health. Committing to a healthy diet, stopping smoking and implementing a consistent exercise routine is a fantastic way to support your hearing health in the new year and beyond.
