The Simple Way To Support Your Hearing Health

                            Hi, my name is Patrick Bark, and I've been a long time researcher passionate to help people
                            all over the world on how to live better and spread awareness on how anyone can help

                            support their healthy hearing.

                            You see, according to the World Health Organisation 50% of hearing loss and impairment is
                            avoidable with early detection, prevention and management

                            While the field of audiology has seen impressive advances in hearing aid technology, I

                            discovered that there are several easy, natural things anyone can do on their own that may
                            help support their healthy hearing.

                            So please, listen up to the following recommendations:

                            1. Know how the ear works

                            The first step in healthy hearing is awareness.

                            The ear is a complex organ that can be easily damaged so it is incredibly useful to

                            understand how it responds to different situations to prevent potential harm.

                            Even a basic overview of the ear should give a good idea of what's going on when you hear
                            sound and what's happening to the ear when it's exposed to loud noise.

                            There are lots of good sources of easy to understand explanations of how the different parts

                            of the ear work and how they work together in the system to allow a person to hear.

                            2. Get some exercise (No gym required)

                            Your ears detect sounds, but it's your brain that interprets them.

                            Exercises that strengthen your brain's hearing comprehension skills might help make you a
                            better listener.

                            Here are two activities you can try:

                            The first one is to go for a walk in the woods, on the beach or in a similar setting with little

                            man-made noise.

                            Focus on your surroundings and write down everything you hear, from birds chirping to the

                            wind blowing.

                            Repeat this exercise several days in a row to gradually become more attuned to the ambient

                            The second activity is even more fun:

                            Have a partner read aloud to you from a book or magazine on an unfamiliar topic.

                            After each sentence, try to repeat exactly what your partner said.
