During the last three days back at work, I think that I have written 2010 instead of 2011 nine out of ten times. I can’t believe that we are in a new year already!
January is the month of resolutions. Things we all do for a week or two, and then find ourselve back in our old ways. (I wonder just how many people are on diets right now that weren’t on them a month ago?) Why is it that we all make goals that we realistically won’t keep?
One simple resolution that can make a huge difference for many people– not only personally, but to their families as well is the goal to hear better. Studies have shown that it takes an average of 7 years from the time a person first notices a hearing loss until the time where they actually do something about it. During those 7 years, gradual changes take place where the person finds themselves less in touch with their family and friends, not as engaged in their work or social lives, and generally socially isolated.
Don’t let 7 years worth of damage done by hearing loss affect your life. We always tell our patients this– we promise that your hearing loss is much more noticeable then the nearly invisible hearing technology that we have available now.
“Resolve” to hear better today!!
