Buying Happiness With Hearing Aids


Happiness is a miracle drug in terms of our health. Its can help us live longer, be more optimistic and induce positive emotions in us. Happiness and health are so interconnected that one’s level of happiness really can impact the level of one’s health.

When we think about happiness, we probably imagine a special memory we shared with a loved one, laughing with friends around the dinner table, or enjoying our favorite activity. Study after study has shown the clear connection between Hearing Aids and Happiness. Research indicates that individuals with hearing loss who wear hearing instruments have better relationships with family members, friends and colleagues than those with untreated hearing loss.

Here’re 3 important ways that tells how hearing aids can make you happier:


1. Better Relationships with Friends and Family

We all know that people with untreated hearing loss are at a high risk of becoming socially isolated. It makes sense, when you’re constantly straining to understand conversations and gathering with friends or family becomes tiring or frustrating.

Many of these concerns are eliminated when treated with hearing aids. A recent survey of about 4,000 adults with hearing loss by the Hear-The-World foundation found that about 70% of respondents reported hearing aids having a profoundly positive impact on their relationships. 


2. Improved Earning Potential


We all know that money doesn’t buy happiness; however, it doesn’t hurt to get paid for your hard work and feel successful while doing it. A recent study conducted through the University of Texas found that after only 2 weeks of use, hearing aids increased cognitive function in adults in their 50s and 60s with mild hearing loss when completing work related tasks. Their work productivity also increased significantly.

It has also been shown that those with untreated hearing loss are rated as less competent at their jobs than their peers with hearing loss treated with hearing aids.


3. Lower Risk of Depression

Multiple studies have pointed to the clear connection between untreated hearing loss and depression. In a recent study by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDOCD), it was found that while only 5% of the population with normal hearing suffered from depression, that number was more than doubled for those with untreated hearing loss. In the same study, it was also concluded that those with hearing loss who do not wear hearing aids are much more likely to develop a major depressive disorder than those with the same degree of hearing loss who use hearing aids.

So, if you can’t remember the last time you heard the chirping of birds, it may be time to make an appointment with a hearing care expert and have your hearing checked. Your first step to living happier and healthier may just be a phone call away!
