The Energy of Hearing
Listening and hearing are not the same. Listening is a complex and deliberate process that involves conscious effort to interpret and understand what we are hearing. Hearing loss interferes with how we listen to and understand others, which makes communication difficult. People with hearing loss have to work harder to listen and understand, which uses a lot more cognitive power.
If you suffer from hearing loss, you may notice you experience fatigue, especially after work meetings or social situations due to the extra concentration involved in straining to hear and from trying to construct meaning out of half-heard words and sentences.
However, many people with hearing loss report that hearing aids help to reduce the tiredness and frustration caused by listening to speech. At Castle Hearing, we offer a wide range of hearing aids that can help to restore the sounds that are missed with hearing loss, alleviating listening fatigue.
