Every new year is a feather in our cap. But as the saying goes, it's not living as much as it is how we live if we want to live our best, healthy-as-possible lives. That means taking care of every part of our body, even our ears.

Here are some top tips for hearing well in the 2022.

Get a Hearing Test
It's best to get your hearing checked for even the most minor changes. But you don't need to go in for a hearing exam every year. Follow these rules of thumb:

● Every five years, if you're 18-45 years old.
● Every three years, if you're 45-60 years old.
● Every two years, if you're 61+ years old.

If you start noticing a change in your hearing, see an audiologist as soon as possible.

Tune-Up Your Hearing Aids
Annual visits to your hearing care provider are a good chance for some hearing aid detailing. Your audiologist should professionally clean them for you the same day or within a couple of days if they need repairs. Ask us for more information if you have any questions about your existing hearing aids, our team will be happy to help.

Establish Healthy Habits
Eat foods high in Omega 3 fats, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, and folic acid, all of which help to protect your inner ear. Try to cut out smoking from your daily routine as well. Studies show nicotine increases your chances of hearing changes by at least 70%.

Brush Up On Hearing Management
Learn about changes in hearing and what's available to you for hearing aids. Possible signs of hearing changes include turning up your TV or radio volume, feeling that others are always talking too softly, tinnitus (buzzing or ringing that only you can hear), missing your morning alarm and struggling with hearing phone conversations. Knowing what technology is available may help you find the perfect solution to ease some of these changes. We can advise you on this, you do not need to worry.

Proactively Protect Your Hearing
Be conscious of noise levels and keep a pair of disposable earplugs in your purse or pocket. When listening to music or podcasts, keep the volume lower than 60%, and don't leave your earbuds in for too long. If you have to shout to talk to someone, take the conversation somewhere quieter. Wear a scarf and earmuffs in cold weather. Remember that you protect your hearing the most when you are proactive.
