This year, I am thankful for the continued journey of discovery in the area of sound and wellness. Our soundscape changes everything, and managing our soundscape can impact our mental and physical health.
Sound affects almost every part of your life. Taking control of what you hear and what you don’t — your soundscape — changes everything. With our guides, learn more about how sound affects you and how to harness the power of sound for health and wellness. Enjoy exploring our new (free) Managing Soundscapes series.
Get help starting the "hearing loss" conversation with parents, teens, and other family members. Do you want to know which questions to ask your audiologist? We have a guide for that, too. Learn more about how to start healthy hearing loss conversations with our (free) Healthy Conversations about Hearing Loss series.
The Akoio Blog
from soundscapes to hearing
to health and wellness
Akoio developed the Soundscape Journal to help you identify sounds in your environment and how they affect you. In just one week, Leah learned about positive sounds that enhance her mood and identified noises she did not even realize were bothersome. With greater awareness comes empowerment to make changes.
Proactively managing our soundscapes can be a difficult task. In fact, sometimes, the very same sounds can be both comforting and distressing in different situations. New Akoio staff writer, Leah Pruitt, shares her adventures trying to control her personal soundscape during a recent vacation.
