We've said it a hundred times but we will say it again... Take care of your ears! Being able to hear is such a special gift that not everyone gets the chance to have, so let's appreciate that and give our ears the love and protection they need to function properly. This article gives you 5 major tips on how to protect your ears!
Five Ways to Protect Your Ears!
If you work in a loud construction site, play an instrument, are a frequent concert goer, or listen to loud music regularly, you should look into getting some earplugs. Studies show that around 15% of Americans have noise-induced hearing loss because of loud work or leisure environments. This can easily be prevented with earplugs, which are relatively cheap.
2. Turn Down the Volume
Can't hear someone else talking to you over the radio? The music is too loud. I know that sometimes you just have to blare your music and forget about the world around you, but it is so bad for your ears! Remember to keep the volume lower when using headphones also. This will help protect your ears tremendously and keep your hearing in tip-top shape for years to come.
3. Say Goodbye to Cotton Swabs
If you haven't already heard, cotton swabs are out and EarwaxMD is in! But seriously, it's time for the cotton swabs to go. Removing the wax in your ears incorrectly is harmful and can only make things worse. Not to mention, half the time you're just pushing the wax back further and deeper into the ear canal. See ya cotton swabs!
4. Get Active!
Everyone knows the phrase 'get your blood pumping' but did you know that it's relevant to your ears? Exercise is one of the best ways to protect your ears from becoming unhealthy. Go for a light jog or even just a walk around the block a few times, you'll feel better and so will your ears!
5. Keep Your Ears Dry
Any excess fluid can cause pain and irritation to your ears. If it is enough moisture you can end up with swimmer's ear. Always be sure to fully dry your ears with a towel when getting out of the shower or pool. It can save you some unwanted ear pain in the future.
