Hearing health is at the top of your list for wellbeing. Exercise is a great way to combat hearing loss (and grumpiness in general). Even if you may feel sluggish at first, after the first 10 minutes, you will see that it actually helps increase energy and improve your mood.
Living with unchecked hearing loss can wear you down mentally and physically as your brain tries harder to process what your ears are taking in. One of the many advantages of hearing devices is also the added safety: imagine hearing the bell of a bike approaching while you're on your morning jog, or the banter of your teammate in a game of doubles in tennis. (You're missing her jokes.) While listening to your favorite podcasts can cut you off from your surroundings, with hearing aids, you'll be able to stream directly and still maintain a healthy awareness of outside noises.
When you do swim (and swim you should), leave your trusted hearing aid 'assistants' by the poolside, safe and dry. They'll bide their time in a snuggly protective case, recharging and getting ready to go when you are.
