Rather than trying extreme cures for tinnitus, here at Hearing Associates of Las Vegas, we like to emphasize during our tinnitus counseling sessions on how simple lifestyle changes can assist with tinnitus symptoms.
To help you know where to start with your lifestyle changes, we have gathered some changes you can start on today to help alleviate your tinnitus.
Develop A Healthy Sleep Schedule
Our sleep governs a lot more than many people realize. Not only does it impact how well we function on a day-to-day basis, but sleep also plays a major factor in our mental health.
When people lack adequate amounts of sleep, they are more prone to suffer from anxiety, which can trigger feelings of stress and depression, which emotions are all tied to increased tinnitus. But you can cut these triggers out of your life by establishing a routine sleep schedule which allows you to have 7-8 hours of sleep a night.
Make Time For Daily Meditation
Whether you have time for 5 minutes or 30 minutes of meditation, making time to include meditation can help you manage your tinnitus.
As you meditate, you don’t need to ignore your tinnitus. In fact, by acknowledging your tinnitus and not allowing it or any negative thoughts to stop you from meditating can help you become more mindful of your body as a whole and help decrease your overall awareness of your tinnitus.
Use Hearing Aids With Tinnitus Support
A critical part of your daily tinnitus treatment plan should be the use of your tinnitus-support hearing aids. As this type of hearing aids acts as discreet sound generators, you can receive continual relief from your tinnitus as you wear your hearing aids.
Also, if you ever need your hearing aids reprogrammed or repaired so you can keep enjoying relief from your tinnitus, you can always count on our hearing instrument specialists’ help.
Cut Back On Unhealthy Habits
While it is best to completely cut out habit which can contribute to your tinnitus, these kinds of changes are not always that simple. However, you can start by cutting back on these habits:
- Caffeine consumption 3 hours before bed
- Drink more water and less other liquids
- Any food triggers
- Listening to media at high settings
By implementing these steps into your life, you should be able to see a significant diminishment in your symptoms. If you don’t have hearing aids with tinnitus support and would like to add them to your tinnitus treatment plan, contact us for an appointment with one of our hearing instrument specialists.
