Happy New Year!

Around this time, everyone starts making promises to themselves. You might resolve to lose weight. Maybe this is the year you decide to stop smoking. Or maybe your resolution is smaller, like remembering to tell your kids you love them before leaving the house every day.

All of those are great things to strive for this year. But you might be overlooking another important change.

This year, why not resolve to improve your hearing?

I know what you’re thinking: Your hearing is not that bad. You get by just fine with the volume on the television cranked up all the way. And your friends don’t mind that much when you ask them to repeat themselves in conversation.

Fair enough. But if you have any degree of hearing loss now, it is likely to worsen if untreated. And untreated hearing loss has been linked to depression and feelings of isolation in older adults. You may only be missing snippets of conversation now, but in a few years, you may be missing out on so much more.

And there’s no reason to miss out on your life. Unlike dieting or smoking cessation, better hearing is just a phone call away.

All you have to do is make an appointment with Hearing Associates, P.C. Once we determine your type of hearing loss, we’ll help you select the best hearing devices for you. It doesn’t take a lot of time or energy, it just takes a phone call. We’ll guide you through the rest.

And better hearing is a resolution that’s easy to keep. All you have to do is wear your hearing aids.

Resolve to hear better this and every year. Come into our Mason City, Iowa office or one of our other locations now for a hearing evaluation.
