Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

If you aren't sure what Noxgear is check out this video.

Turn Down The Volume #GenerationDeaf

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

I might be showing my age here, but do you remember the portable cassette players? Or the CD player and you were so excited to get one with the 'no skip' function? I remember trying to run and walk with those devices. Then came the ipods and wow did my world open up. Then you could listen to the radio or your own music. And now with smart phones you can do all sort of things like watch and listen to videos, games, stream music and the list goes on and on.

So why am I talking about these things?
Well, because all of them can be used with headphones. Raise your hand if you've always kept the volume at a 'safe' level? I admit if a song comes on that I really like, I will usually crank up the volume. And I've had years of exposure to noises louder than they should have been.

Now that Lil Man has his tablet and other devices, I try to be very careful about volume control. I want to protect his hearing. I want to be able to hear his laugh, my loved ones' voices, and the sounds of nature.


Hearing loss happens, and we often forget just how valuable our hearing can be.


I didn't realize that a lot of insurance companies don't cover hearing evaluations and hearing aids. I was surprised to find out that a hearing aid can range from $1,500 to $5,000! Insurances often cover dental and vision, but not always hearing. If you are unsure of your coverage, your HR department should be able to inform you if your insurance (medical or supplemental) covers visits to an audiologist, and hearing aid treatment.

If hearing health is NOT a covered benefit for you, take a stand and request a change. EPIC Hearing Healthcare has created an advocacy flyer that anyone can just share to start a conversation with their HR professional. Download it at: http://www.epichearing.com/listenhear/resources/

Hearing health and hearing insurance is an important topic, and it should not be taken lightly.

Protect your ears - and the ears of your loved ones and friends.
