Home is a place where most people spend their time with their families and friends. It is a place where you can find joy and comfort as well as to stay away from irritating noise outside. But there are times when you can't help certain noises to occur inside your home. It is important to always maintain a proper hearing health care no matter where you are or where you go. Whether you are in the grocery store, home, restaurants and special events don't forget to keep proper measures to avoid any hearing form of hearing disorder from occurring. Keep in mind that our ears (which is the mechanical part of our body) is very sensitive to loud and aggressive noises.
Hearing health care to keep in mind every time you are at home:
By applying proper hearing health care at home, and by using your eyes, you can really enhance your communication inside your house. Most people tend to have a lot of household arguments due to miscommunication and because they tend not to completely understand what the other party is saying. By doing proper hearing health care, you can also minimize or lessen the cause of misunderstandings and stress. There are a lot of people who have proven the given steps (see below the article) to be effective.
1. If you can reduce the cause of noise, do it! It will not do you any harm if you mute the TV first or if you turn off the water faucet whenever someone is talking. Closing main door can also reduce the amount of noise that enters your house so that you could converse easier as well as understand completely what the other people are telling you. You must know what and where the main source is coming from in order to completely (or somehow lessen) the amount of noise pollution in your house.
2. You have to move closer to the speaker in order to hear clearly what that person is saying. Never try to talk from a different room to another room because you will only end up shouting with each other which will only add up to the noise in your house. Try to go nearer to the talking person because sound waves does not really travel well in far locations.
3. Once you have moved closer to the talking person, you also need to look at him or her so that you can also perform lip reading for better understanding. Keep in mind that eyes and ears works hand in hand. The better your understanding about the topic if you were able to listen and see the talking person. Have a face to face conversation for better hearing and understanding of the topic.
4. You MUST get the attention of the listener before you even talk to them. When a person is doing something (like watching television, playing video games or listening to music) you will not get their full attention which means that they will never completely understand what you are trying to say. So save your voice and get their full attention first before you start talking.
