Hearing Loss is stressful. Those who say it is not, are not being honest with themselves. Your constant monitoring of the environment to make up for communication clues you are not hearing or understanding takes a toll on you physically and mentally. We need to relax more. Sometimes this means taking the hearing aids off. Sometimes it means exercising more or getting involved in regular physical activity. Whatever it means for you, here are a few websites with ideas you can follow up and find the kind of relaxation that works best for your life style. If you want to include other websites or ideas, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
