Woman considering hearing aids as she looks at her image in a mirror.

You’ve been looking for a way to retain your youthfulness as you age.

You’ve tried to find it in with diet, exercise, and supplements. You’ve spent more money than you’d like to admit on wrinkle creams and hair growth products. You’ve even tried yoga. It doesn’t matter what your age, you can stay happy and youthful.

But fortunately, there’s an affordable way to keep that youthful happy feeling which has scientific support. Yet, less than 16% of individuals who would benefit are taking advantage of it.

The “trick” is easy – they’re using their hearing aids to manage their hearing loss.

As we age, this may be the trick to remaining youthful and happy.

Is Hearing Loss Very Prevalent?

The potential to experience hearing loss goes up substantially by age 45. Even children as young as 12 are impacted.

A study showed that out of all individuals between 45 and 54, hearing loss is experienced by 11% of them. By age 80 that percentage goes up to 90%. Almost 25 percent of those aged 65 to 74, and 50 percent of individuals 75 and older, are dealing with disabling hearing loss.

Also, men younger than 70 are two times as likely to have hearing loss than women in the same age group.

Contrary to common notion most instances of hearing loss occur because of exposure to loud noise not aging. Some individuals are exposed to more harmful noises than others over the course of their lives.

Hearing loss isn’t an inevitability, but failing to treat your hearing loss has been demonstrated by consistent studies, to affect your general health, happiness, and youthfulness.

But hearing aids are used by just 1 out of 7 people who actually need them.

Your Hearing Aid is The Secret to Youthfulness And Happiness

Using your hearing aid has been directly linked to the following results:

  • Engaging in social interaction 20% more often

One of the things that make life wonderful, you’ll concur, is being with other people. You feel happier and younger when you spend cherished time with those you love doing the activities you take pleasure in.

Those with hearing loss who wear their hearing aids are more likely to stay active and social.

  • Having a 30% less-likelihood of depression

Studies have revealed that people who have hearing loss who use hearing aids are less likely to report sad feelings and loneliness, which is associated with depression.

They’re also less likely to feel like people are mad at them or attempting to avoid them. It’s not as common for them to engage in self isolation.

Less depression means greater happiness.

  • Less likelihood of enduring mental decline

If you have someone in your family that is suffering from dementia you know all too well how scary that can be. It takes longer for a person with cognitive decline to understand things and they are continually forgetting what they said and did which makes them feel older.

As cognitive decline worsens, the individuals who are coping with it are no longer able to do the things that make them feel youthful and happy.

If your risk of getting dementia and Alzheimer’s can be lowered by simply wearing hearing aids, shouldn’t you be doing that.

  • Minimizing your chance of falling by 30%

The risk of falling and sustaining a serious injury becomes a serious concern as we age. When we were younger, we were much more stable. A hospital stay and several weeks of rehab could be the consequence if a serious fall results in a fracture.

That isn’t a place you want to be. It’s no fun to be hospitalized in pain.

You’re happier when you’re able to get around easily. You’re more confident in your movements and less likely to be startled.

Hearing aids will make a hospital stay less likely and will allow you to spend more time with friends and family.

  • Misunderstandings and arguments are 30% less likely

How many times have you been involved in a misunderstanding because you failed to hear what someone actually said. Or maybe you think someone is yelling at you because they need to raise their voice so you can hear them.

Untreated hearing loss puts a tremendous strain on your relationships with friends and family. It can create resentment, anger, sadness, and other negative emotions. But you will have more positive interactions with friends and family if you can hear better which hearing aids will help you do. Whatever age you may be, this will help you remain youthful and happy.

Reclaim what you’ve lost

Have you been wearing your hearing aid? You may have forgotten some of the simple joys in life that you’re missing, including:

  • Conversations with family and friends without asking them to speak up
  • Social clubs and outings
  • The laughter of children
  • Nature sounds outdoors
  • Music

If you have hearing loss, you may still hear these things to some extent but they are most likely not as enjoyable.
