7/13/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 11. July 2013 07:11

I went for a walk on the street the other morning.  I was happy to have a few minutes of alone time ( I love my kids but two 6 year old and 2 eight year olds can really talk!)  It was crisp and smelled heavenly and I had my pace up…and my I-pod froze up (I’m not electronically inclined, but I tried everything I could think of to fix it, to no avail).  Wow.  It’s amazing how much my pace and stamina is affected by music.  It turned out to be a speed walk that took a lot more effort.

About 5 years ago I chaired a fundraiser for The Hearing, Speech, and Deaf Center (I used to do fundraising for non-profits before I had my kids).  I had no affiliation with this organization before, but was doing a favor for an old friend.  I learned quite a bit about damaging the ear with ear-buds and loud music.  One issue with ear-buds is that it gets introduced into your ear canal, instead of sitting up above the surface.  It’s a better quality sound, but makes the potential for long-term damage easier.

The lesson here is to use common sense.  Be gentle with your hearing because it can be damaged easily.  But, by all means, rock on!
