Have we, unwillingly, become a society of ‘hearing hypocrites’?
Do we really value our hearing as much as we say we do?
According to a recently completed national survey of more than 1,000 people across the U.S., respondents place hearing among the highest of the senses they value. But most do not take steps to protect their hearing in the same way, or to the same level, of other senses that rated lower.
Self-care goes a long way to protecting your hearing for years to come.
So remember, whether you’re doing a home improvement (or home maintenance) project or enjoying an outdoor concert, remember to protect your ears just as you would protect your eyes or the skin on your face.
