Hearing loss - recognize alleged burnout symptoms in good time

What does a beginning hearing loss have in common with burnout symptoms? In fact, hearing can cause stress - and cause burnout-like conditions. Especially at the beginning of an onset of hearing loss. Not all sounds in the brain reach the hearing filter, which plays a major role in human hearing.

If the hearing aid is impaired due to a beginning hearing loss, less and less is heard. The consequence: Affected persons must listen more carefully and inquire more frequently in order to understand something. This does not only strain, but it means stress. Because the hearing gets more cognitive resources and a higher ability to concentrate.

Emotional stress at work through acoustic isolation

Many of those affected then feel in theirs Communication, especially at work, limited. Misunderstandings arise, they cannot understand what is being said. This is uncomfortable for them, which is why they are avoiding conversations more and more often. But also through the efforts to fill the acoustic gaps, they withdraw more and more in order to gather strength again. They take less part in active life. In addition to the acoustic isolation, there is also social isolation.

Emotional stress is often added: expectations of oneself, one's own attitudes or fears generate negative feelings. In conversations, stakeholders shy away from asking again. Or are afraid that others think bad about them - hearing loss is unfortunately still a social taboo subject that is all too easily labeled under the title "Altersgebrechen".

Little hearing information, a lot of hearing stress

The hearing filter is an essential part of our hearing processing. He has the task to select important from unimportant noises and thus to make good hearing possible. With an intact audio filter can be easily maintained conversations, even if it is all around very busy. This function also protects against too much acoustic input and thus against overstimulation. The filter function in the ear also allows us to selectively listen, which is particularly important when we are in noisy environments, such as at trade fairs or conferences.

If there is a hearing loss, this ability is lost. It gets less hearing information to the filter, this is less used and therefore can often do its job as desired. The hearing filter is untrained. If then through a hearing aid amplified tones to him, this can no longer handle the unfamiliar tide of noise. It passes on unfiltered all sounds and creates: noise. Noise that causes stress again. The frequent consequence: The actually necessary hearing aids are not worn ...

3 tips against stress and for a healthy approach to hearing loss

But what can we do if we encounter such a problem to counteract the resulting stress? 3 Tips:

1. Self-love: Away from the negative self-image

If we look inside ourselves, we most likely notice very quickly the refusal to be deaf ourselves. The very idea of ​​it is uncomfortable for most people. It costs us some massive overcoming to consult an ENT or hearing care professional.

But why? Conversely, precisely those negative basic assumptions lead to very high social and emotional burdens, which in turn have an effect on the psychological level. An unpleasant circumstance that can even make you sick - right down to burnout. However, hearing problems and their symptoms such as fatigue or burnout-like conditions can be counteracted.

2. Reactivate the sound filter

In order to avoid the removal of the actually necessary hearing aids and to train the hearing filter, specifically developed hearing therapies are already more likely. Special exercises help the person affected - or their hearing filters - step by step to differentiate important from unimportant noises.

After a short time, it becomes possible to follow conversations again and actively participate in conversations. The (listening) stress is noticeably reduced, cognitive effort and psychic Stress decreases, the zest for life increases.

3. Exercise sound fitness

And suddenly so many noises arrive ... In a volume and timbre that those affected are simply no longer used to. Many things suddenly sound very different. The reason for this feeling is the hearing weaning that has taken place until then: the longer it goes back in time, the stronger the feeling of strange, unfamiliar sounds.

But the brain is able to get used to the tonal and frequency richness again. The consistent, durable wearing of the hearing aids trains the ear to the new listening conditions. By contrast, the filtering of the important noises is consciously and individually trained by the hearing therapy. Conducted consistently, sufferers are rewarded with high-quality hearing. And with her comes the professional joy far from negative thoughts about stress and burnout - the joy of business appointments in general and customer appointments in particular.
