Ear protection is more important than one might realize, especially at an early age. Loud and constant, moderate noises abound in our modern world, such as music, concerts, power tools, sirens, and much more. The need to care for our ears starts at a young age, but it is never too late to begin. Here are two main reasons why it is best to wear ear protection.
You Can’t Regain Your Hearing
Unfortunately, no one has yet discovered how to restore natural hearing. In some cases, hearing loss can occur when the inner ear becomes damaged from loud noise exposure, among other possible causes like medication and TBI. The sound waves can damage the tiny hairs inside the cochlea, and this damage is permanent.
Even mild hearing loss can have a significant impact on one’s health and life; it can even become easier to lose balance due to mild hearing loss! Over time, and depending on the condition, one might have trouble hearing in loud rooms, large rooms, and also in relatively quiet situations. Hearing loss can impact one’s social life and balance, and hearing aids can certainly improve the situation drastically, but one must understand that hearing aids are not the same as natural hearing.
What Hearing Gives Us
As alluded to above, sharp hearing preserves our health and social life. Our hearing allows us to filter out background noise from whatever we are focusing on, and to hear clearly what we are listening to. It lets us hear the full range of sounds that life affords, sounds that those with untreated hearing loss often missed the most: the sound of loved ones’ footsteps, bird songs, music, etc. One of our five senses, hearing lets us connect with the world and other people in a mighty way, which improves our overall happiness.
