How to Make the Holidays More Hearing-Friendly

I love the five weeks that begin with Thanksgiving and end with New Year’s, but a part of me also thinks, “Bah, humbug.” That’s the part that knows I’ll struggle to follow conversations at family dinners, holiday parties, concerts and pageants. It’s also the part of me that will want to leave early, or maybe even just stay home.
If you feel the same way, here are a few tips and strategies for making the holidays more hearing-friendly. My favorite is Mindful Listening.

  1. Thank you for this useful column. I second the motion for assistive devices in
    noisy situations! Sitting with your back against the wall in a restaurant is
