How you can improve mental health through hearing

Feb 21, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

When a part of our body does not work in the way it is intended to, it can disrupt our lives. As an Audiologist or a client of ours, you will have first hand experience of how hearing loss or impairment can negatively affect health and a persons attitude. But did you know that if you work to improve your hearing, you can improve your mental health?

Let’s explore how you can improve mental health through hearing.

Reduce Depression and Anxiety

If you’re living with hearing loss, there’s a good chance that your mental health and well-being have suffered along with it. You can reduce depression and anxiety because our high level expertise will teach you to avoid straining to hear conversations or listen to things that bring you joy.

In other words, audiology isn’t just about the ability to hear. It improves your overall wellness.

Reverse Sleep Problems

Sleep deprivation is a serious problem for those suffering from hearing loss. In fact, insomnia is one of the most common symptoms associated with hearing loss and tinnitus. Not only does it affect your ability to sleep, but it can harm mental health as well.

Thankfully, you can learn solutions for managing your hearing related sleep problems from Paul and the team here, at The Hearing Space. Easily accessible options may include routes towards counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy.

Lessen Cognitive Problems

Cognitive problems typically occur when hearing loss gets so severe that it impedes your ability to communicate. By addressing hearing loss, clinicians can significantly improve cognitive function. Studies show hearing loss is associated with cognitive decline and an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Our support can help address these issues by providing you with the resources and tools you need to manage hearing loss more effectively.
