Pardon? How To Deal With Hearing Loss Without Becoming Anti-Social


Losing your hearing can be a horrible thing at any age. You suddenly can’t listen to your favourite music anymore and you can struggle to hear what your friends and family are saying to you. It can be easy to become antisocial when you are hard of hearing, however this can be damaging to your friendships and relationships with people as a whole. Here are some ways to make sure that you don’t struggle with your social skills when you are hard of hearing.

Use technology

You can use lots of helpful technology such as a hearing aid to make sure you can still listen and join in with conversations with the people you love. You can use adjusting hearing aids to make sure that you can always stay part of the conversation and that you are never left out of anything.

Use visual aids

When you can’t hear as well as you would like to, you might need to start using visual cues to make deciphering what others are saying a little bit easier. Even if you don’t lose your hearing completely it can be helpful to learn sign language for watching your favourite TV programs, and you can learn how to read lips so that you always know what people are trying to talk to you about even if you can hear small fragments of it already. Visual cues can be a lifesaver for those who cannot hear every well so make sure that you take the time to learn some of them.

Network with similar people

If you are hard of hearing and you are struggling to cope with it all, you can actually help make a difference by networking with other people who are also hard of hearing. You will find that you make some great new friends by attending different events and meeting with other people who struggle with hearing and you will also likely be able to gain some tips and tricks to make your life easier in the future.

Stay online

If you struggle with your hearing it might be much easier for you to stay online and use things such as social media to stay in touch with you family and your friends. It can be a great tool to use because you can still talk to people without having to make phone calls and it will make it easier for you to stay in the loop with your family and things which are going on in other people’s lives.

It’s okay to be independent

If hearing loss makes you be more solitary and independent, there isn’t anything with that. The loss of your hearing might force you to be more independent as a person and this might actually make you feel so much more strong as a result. You don’t have to rely on the help of others, however you should at least make sure that you stay connected with your friends and your family for the best possible life.

Be The Change You Want To See In The Agriculture Industry

The agricultural industry has had a pretty hard time in recent years. It’s not alone, of course. Industries across the world have been struggling to remain in favor as consumers become more informed. The fact is that, with the internet, everyone can now look into the intricacies of each industry. And, they don’t always like what they find.

Still, it’d be fair to say agriculture has come under the most substantial strain of any industry. Not only do farmers have to cope with an eco-conscious age, but they’re also dealing with the rise of veganism. As can be seen on sites like, the last three years have seen an astounding 600% rise in this eating choice. When you consider all this, it’s no surprise many in the agriculture industry are wondering how safe their jobs are.


If you’re among the many, though, you’ve come to the right place. In truth, any industry faces peaks and troughs over the years. There’s no reason this change has to spell an end to agriculture jobs. But, one thing we can all agree on is that the industry needs to change. And, we’re going to look at three positions which would allow you to help it do so.

Management roles

Management roles are best for driving change in any industry. And, as can be seen from job sites like, there are many management roles in the agricultural industry right now. So, if you’ve always taken a backseat, it might be time to apply for a job with more power. When you’re at the top, you can make real impacts in how the industry meets these changing opinions. You can put recycling initiatives in place, and ensure your animals receive the right care. These are changes which need to happen, and you could easily be the one to make sure of it. All you need to do is step up and apply for some of those higher roles.

Animal feed sales

It’s also possible to make a real difference when selling animal feed right now. As mentioned above, people care more than ever about the way farms look after their animals. As such, ensuring their nutritional needs are met is now essential. And, you can help to achieve this with each transaction by selling the right animal feed. Many companies provide nutritional food, and they need salespeople. So, don’t hesitate to apply for a role like this. With your expertise, farms across your area could soon start feeding their animals better.

Crop-only farms

Unsurprisingly, recent years have also seen an increase in crop-only farms. These appeal to both eco-conscious and animal-friendly consumers. Thanks to lower emissions due to a lack of cows, farms like these more than half carbon emissions. On top of which, such establishments appeal to rather than alienate the vegan audience. What’s more, they need trained staff like you to see real success. So, making a change here could be as simple as applying for roles on farms like these.
