If you are living with untreated hearing loss, you are not hearing as much as you could be, making as much money as you could be, or living as rich of a life as you could be.
We have a series of points to demonstrate this, bold as the statement may be. Read along, and you may agree by the time you’re done!
- You will have more confidence.
If you have been living without hearing aids for any length of time, it is likely that you are less confident than you used to be. It’s a natural progression...you don’t hear well, you stop communicating with people, and confidence declines over time.
When you start wearing hearing aids, you naturally engage more with your surroundings. You start hearing better. You start talking more. You can begin to feel so much better about yourself.
- Increased self-esteem pays you back in spades.
It goes without saying that a self-esteem boost increases your likelihood to go after any number of things. If you are single, you’re more likely to ask out that person you’ve been interested in for awhile. You are more likely to be offered a promotion, and you are definitely more likely to believe you are capable enough to take that promotion.
- You’ll get your money’s worth.
Whether it’s a movie, a class you are attending or a live show you paid to see - your hearing aids will allow you to hear everything that’s going on.
- Better Working Environment + More Money
As stated above, increased self-esteem can correlate with better job offers. But in addition to that, you’ll get along with your co-workers, customers and bosses better if you can hear what is going on.
When living with hearing loss, the potential exists to miss oral instructions and not complete a project properly. Hearing aids would certainly address that issue in the workplace.
Oh, and the money. A 2011 study conducted by the Better Hearing Institute discovered that not getting hearing aids can cost you as much as 30,000 dollars in income each year.
- Music is known to make people happier.
Without hearing aids, individuals with hearing loss can miss out on a lot. They may not even realize how much until starting to wear them. Music is a huge part of most people’s lives, and the absence of it may be both noticeable and impactful.
It is a well-known fact that “music soothes the savage beast” - and the human as well. You may not think that music is that important to you - but when you start hearing it again, you will realize how sorely you missed it.
