If your birthday or wedding anniversary is in February, forgive me in advance for saying this — but there is little to look forward to this month. It’s after the holidays but before spring. And in many parts of the country, it may be the coldest month of the year.
Fortunately, it’s short.
Another saving grace? Valentines Day. February is a great month to focus on love, relationships and affairs of the heart — three things you would think have little to do with hearing or hearing loss. But you might be surprised to know they are very intertwined.
Hearing and communicating are key ingredients to strong and happy relationships. Survey after survey shows that people who treat their hearing loss acknowledge that getting hearing aids improved or had a positive effect on relationships with family and friends.
Take our short quiz to see if hearing loss is affecting your relationships.
Our hearing and our heart are connected physically, too. You can read more about that in this blog.
Finally, this particular February, there is one other thing to look forward to. Click here to get a sneak peek.
