Whether it’s the buzzing of cicadas on a summer evening or the wind whistling in your ears on an early morning hike, sounds bring us closer to nature. They can also help keep us safe, warning us when danger may be around the corner. Nature itself has even been shown to help reduce stress, depression and feelings of loneliness. If you’re living with hearing loss, you don’t want to miss out. Taking the first step to restoring your hearing means opening your world back up to all the benefits the outdoors have to offer.

Tips to protect your hearing

Protecting your hearing while outdoors

  • Wear ear protection: Whether you’re hunting, on a boat or mowing the lawn, the outdoors can get noisy. Always bring ear plugs or earmuffs with you to block out the extra decibels.
  • Give your ears a break: If your outdoor activities involve constant noise, take some breaks to avoid long-term noise exposure. Sit back and enjoy the rustling leaves or chirping birds for a while.
  • Keep your ears dry: If you spend your time in the lake or the pool, dry both ears thoroughly to avoid swimmer’s ear. You can even get swimming ear plugs to block out the water.
  • Keep your hearing aids safe: If you already have hearing aids, ensure you have all supplies, such as a dryer and cleaning kit, to keep your hearing aids working well.
