Feeling younger can be accomplished in many ways. But protecting your hearing is one way that is frequently ignored.

For years, improving and increasing your life has been connected to a healthy diet and exercise. It also helps prevent heart disease, cancer, and promotes weight control. But remaining healthy and youthful also relies on good hearing.

Hearing maintenance advantages frequently ignored

Healthy hearing boosts confidence, improves your love life, and helps you stay young in the following 10 ways.

1. More rewarding connections

Hearing loss has a tendency to cause people to become alienated from friends and loved ones. They seclude themselves from others because of their impairment. How can you interact during your pickleball match if you have trouble hearing? You may not even detect the problem until you’re already estranged from friends and relatives. Better hearing leads to more confidence.

2. Enhanced learning ability

Many individuals go back to school to stimulate their minds. You will learn more and enjoy yourself more when you’re in school if you have good hearing. You won’t need to sit in the front and continuously ask your teacher to repeat what they said. You’ll understand directions more readily and have better social interaction with other students.

3. Better sex

Seniors who have no hearing loss or wear hearing aids have a more fulfilling social life. More independence and better general health are the results. And, surprisingly, you will also have a much better sex life.

4. Improved blood flow

Improved hearing is one of many reasons why exercise is helpful. Nutrients nourish and preserve the ears and when there is strong blood flow, more of these nutrients get where they need to go.

5. Less risk of a fall

Spacial awareness is diminished with hearing loss and that can lead to a loss of balance. Seniors who have lost only 25 decibels are 3X more likely to have a fall than those with no hearing loss.

6. Increased reaction time

Our senses activate our instincts including reaction time to alerts or danger. You will keep yourself and people around you safer if you can respond quickly to alerts, sirens, fire alarms, and other warnings which good hearing will help you do.

7. Fewer hospital stays

Loss of hearing increases a senior’s risk of accidents, falls, and depression as well as inactivity. Depression and accidents are often reasons that seniors end up becoming hospitalized and they can play a role in other reasons for hospitalization.

8. Increased confidence

Insecurity and a lack of confidence are often the outcomes when somebody has a difficult time communicating. This lack of confidence may bring about a reluctance to go to gatherings, parties, meetings, and events. This can become a vicious cycle of self-consciousness and isolation.

9. Better job satisfaction

The fact that individuals who have strong hearing do better at their job shouldn’t come as a surprise. You might miss important information, safety measures, or instructions. And you’re regularly missing information from your teammates during zoom calls. Good job performance and results rely on participation.

10. Reduced chance of cognitive decline

Because of a loss of social interaction and overall stimulation, hearing loss has been linked to cognitive decline. Dementia is caused partly by shrinkage of the brain which happens as people age. Greater brain shrinkage contributes to an increased risk of dementia.
