Tips for the Holiday Season

Here are some fun tips on how to enjoy the Holiday Season specially prepared by Santa and Cobb, the hearing dog.

Tip #1: Indulge yourself. Eat too much, drink too much, laugh too much. And especially the last one.

Tip #2 Flaunt your ALD’s. Want to have a nice chat with a pal? Stick your assistive listening device in their face and say “here, use this so we can talk!!” (Just joking – I know you’ll ask politely.)

Tip #3 Keep your batteries charged. The Boy Scouts remind us to “be prepared.” Holiday parties are a rotten time to run out of juice.

Tip #4 Scream. If you ask people to look at you when they talk to you and they forget, scream at them. (Only joking).

Tip #5: Eat chocolate. Chocolate, that classic indulgence has been scientifically proven to be good for you. And we are nothing if not scientific around here!

Tip #6: Be thankful. For the bounty in your life and the possibilities in your future. For the hearing that you have and for the advances in technology that enables you to hear better.

As we’re near the end of 2017 I want to thank you for your support and insights you’ve given me throughout the year. Wishing you and your loved ones a joyous 2018!
