Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and the start of fall. It is a time of rest for the entire nation and a weekend to celebrate and thank all the everyday American workers that make this country run. Labor Day celebrations can expose one to a range of noise conditions, but some are most definitely in your control. Here are a few healthy hearing tips for Labor Day!
Rest Your Ears
Labor Day weekend is a time of rest. Rest from your work this weekend, and rest your ears too! We have so many sources of noise around us today, from videos to TVs to audiobooks. Set apart time to enjoy the silence or the ambient noises of birds singing and children playing at your local park.
This weekend is also a great time to practice your listening, especially if you are training your ears to be sharp or if you have new hearing aids. There are ways to keep your hearing sharp as a tack, namely through certain listening exercises. You should also wear your new hearing aids consistently, and this break is a great time to adjust even better.
Fireworks could be a part of your Labor Day celebration, and that is very exciting. If you expect fireworks, music concerts, and other sources of loud noise to be part of your weekend, don’t forget to take care of your ears and protect them from harm. Repeated exposure is simply not good for your health, and your health is worth protecting.
People with hearing loss especially tend to have a harder time connecting with family and friends. Staying socially active improves your physical and mental health, no matter your hearing condition. Keep in touch with your friends and family, spend time with them, and stay connected.
Labor Day weekend is one of the best times you could rest, relax, and rejuvenate and practice these healthy hearing tips.
