Better Hearing in 2024: New Year, New Resolutions

The start of a new year is the perfect time to reflect on our health and well-being, including our often-overlooked hearing health. In Thunder Bay, where the serenity of nature meets the vibrancy of life, taking care of your hearing is a resolution that promises a richer, more connected life. As we begin 2024, let’s explore some hearing-focused New Year’s resolutions that can significantly impact your overall health and happiness.


  1. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

If you’ve been noticing changes in your hearing, make 2024 the year you step out of your comfort zone and seek help from a hearing specialist. Being open to solutions like hearing aids can significantly enhance your ability to engage with the world around you.


  1. Take Holistic Care of Your Health

Your hearing is intricately connected to your overall health. Commit to a healthier lifestyle in 2024, incorporating regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and managing stress. A balanced diet rich in green, leafy veggies, healthy fatty fish, and lean proteins can positively impact your hearing health.


  1. Quit Smoking for Better Hearing

Make this year the year you finally ditch the cigarettes for your overall health, including your hearing. Studies show that smokers are 70 per cent more likely to experience hearing loss than non-smokers.


  1. Be Mindful of Noise Levels

Pledge to be more aware of noise levels in your surroundings. Protect your ears with noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs, especially in loud environments. Adhere to the 60/60 rule when listening to music through headphones — keep the volume at or below 60% for no more than 60 minutes daily.


  1. Prioritize Regular Hearing Tests

If you’re already using hearing aids, make it a resolution to get your hearing tested. Periodic tests ensure that your devices are optimized for any changes in your hearing. Schedule tests at least every two years or more frequently if you have older hearing aids.


  1. Wear Your Hearing Aids Consistently

If you’ve been prescribed hearing aids, make a conscious effort to wear them regularly. Adhering to the recommended schedule will improve your daily life, fostering more enriching interactions.


  1. Explore Cutting-Edge Hearing Aid Technologies

Discover the latest hearing aid technologies in 2024. Major hearing aid manufacturers have released innovative options, from discreet in-the-ear models to Bluetooth connectivity, speech clarity in windy conditions, and personalized adjustments with all-new microphone and receiver features.


Some of the most remarkable technology is courtesy of Oticon Real™. Fueled by BrainHearing™ technology, this revolutionary hearing aid offers Thunder Bay residents an unparalleled auditory journey.
