Hearing protection is crucial to your overall hearing health. Your hearing is an essential part not only of enjoying the world around you, but taking part in it as well. In this blog, we’ll cover some helpful hearing protection tips for everyday activities. These tips will guide you on when to protect your hearing from an ever-increasing noise-filled world.
As Summer Approaches, Keep These Hearing Protection Tips in Mind!
When Mowing the Lawn: Spring and summer are the times of the year you’ll probably be spending the most time working in your yard. When you’re mowing the lawn, be sure to use some form of hearing protection. Riding mowers can be much louder than the push mower models.
Going to a Loud Concert: Like sporting events, concerts are a form of entertainment that are more popular during the summer than during other times of the year. Whether an iconic rock band is in town, or your favorite pop artist is performing, take care of your hearing while you enjoy yourself.
At Sporting Events: Be sure to use hearing protection at sporting events, too. Much like concerts, they are especially crowded and popular during the summer. Even if basketball and hockey are winding down, baseball and soccer are in full swing.
Listening to Loud Music : We all enjoy listening to music, no matter what style or genre. But whether you’re attending to household tasks, doing homework, working out at the gym, or turning it up to sing along with your favorite song on your morning commute, listening to music that’s too loud can harm your hearing. Two easy ways to protect your hearing this way are to simply lower the volume or noise-cancel.
Other Ways to Boost Your Hearing Protection
Lower the Volume, or Noise-Cancel: As we just touched on, lowering the volume of what you’re listening to or using noise-cancelling headphones can help immensely. No matter how loud other sounds may be, blocking those out with even louder music will be worse for you in the long run. Instead, try using either sound-isolating or noise-canceling headphones. This will allow you to tune out frustrating background noise and focus on enjoying what you’re listening to; remember, comfort and safety are the keys to proper hearing protection.
Walk Away to a Safe Distance: Sometimes, all you need to do is give your ears a break. If you can, just walk away from the source of the noise. Hearing breaks allow your ear some time to recover.
