New Year’s Resolution for Tinnitus Sufferers.
The unprecedented events of this year created stress, anxiety, fear, poor sleep and fatigue. These are not the building blocks for overall well-being. For individuals suffering from tinnitus, these factors can make tinnitus worse or make it difficult to cope with this condition. As the year 2021 approaches, many of us will consider a New Year’s resolution which includes exercise to improve wellness. It is well known that diet and exercise can positively impact our overall health and reduce the risk of chronic disease such as heart disease and diabetes. It can also help hearing health and provide incredible benefits for those who suffer from tinnitus.
Exercise is important for overall health, but it is also can support hearing health.
When we exercise it strengthens our immune system and helps mitigate damage in the body due to chronic inflammation. Exercise also improves blood circulation in the body which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the organs and brain as well as the inner ear.
For individuals who suffer from tinnitus, exercise can provide benefits for tinnitus relief and allow improved ability to cope with its impact. Exercise reduces stress hormones and releases “feel good” endorphins. Endorphins can improve our physical and mental well-being and reduce stress. When stress levels drop, tinnitus can be less intrusive or bothersome. Exercise can also improve sleep quality and increase ability to cope with tinnitus.
