October is National Protect Your Hearing Month, the month we focus on the causes of hearing loss and the various ways to prevent it. While it is challenging to avoid noises, it would be better to avoid loud environments and allow yourself some quiet time. Find out more about how you can observe this national holiday to prevent further hearing loss and protect your loved one’s hearing.
How To Participate During National Protect Your Hearing Month
Immerse Yourself in Reading Books
Get curled up with your favorite book in the quietest place you can visit, whether in the comfort of your own home, at the park, or a local library. Reading a book is one of the best ways to avoid being around loud environments.
Take a Peaceful Walk
Soak in nature’s sound while taking a walk around your neighborhood or at a local park. Take your time enjoying the sounds of birds singing and trees rustling through the wind.
Share helpful methods in various ways to prevent hearing loss with your family and friends. Help your loved ones understand why hearing loss prevention is essential by seeing a specialist and taking a hearing test together.
3 Interesting Facts About Your Ears
Your Ears Never Turn Off
Did you know that your ears continue working even while you sleep? When you fall asleep, your brain is unable to process the sounds that you are hearing. But that doesn’t mean your ears stop working when you are unconscious.
Ears Are Made Of Bones
Your ears are made of three different tiny bones: the Incus, Stapes, and Malleus. These small bones allow sound waves to transmit to the inner part of your ear.
Ears Can Self Clean
Did you know earwax naturally keeps your ears clean? Not only is it self cleaning. Earwax is also beneficial in many ways, such as naturally moisturizing your ears and preventing ear infections.
