4. Have healthy conversations Scientific research
suggests that gratitude and kindness improves personal performance, happiness, and health. Share your positive experiences and enthusiasm for what you are learning. Maybe even brag about your new hearing tech a little. You will feel happier. And, like ripples in a pond, your story will help change the larger conversation around your hearing.
5. Conquer life
Of course, we can do more than talk positively about our hearing health. We can be positive examples of how to live, regardless of how we hear. We can be a role model, an advocate or a mentor. We can change the conversation around hearing loss. We can encourage people to get help and manage their hearing better. And, when someone notices our hearing aid or asks for advice, we can inspire them do more than just live with hearing loss. Together, we can conquer life.
I invite you to take the hearing loss challenge. How many people do you know who sometimes have difficulty hearing? Please share your findings in the comments section.
