Sure sound can be soothing and music is the best thing we could have invented, but are we aware that loud noise can hurt us?
It seems that the average sound level found in night clubs is about 100 decibels. This is a very high level especially for the club staff that works about 8 hours per night.
An average person can withstand 90 dB almost 8 hours every night, but what goes above that might cause hearing loss in the future. At 95 dB the supported time goes to 4 hours and only 2 hours is permitted for the sound level of 100 dB or above.
As life becomes more and more agitated, the sound around us constantly increased to the point where every loud noise can cause us harm in some way.
Let’s think about this a bit. If an ambulance passes by your place with the siren on, you will undoubtedly think that something bad is happening and your stress levels will increase significantly. If you are a war veteran and you hear a loud explosion like a tire bursting or a firecracker, your heart levels will increase considerably and your mind will wander back to the terrible past you left behind.
These are only a few daily things that can occur in our lives, but the list is very long when it comes to health problems involving loud noise. The prevailing cases include hypertension, ischemic heart disease, sleep disturbance, annoyances, hearing loss and a variety of cardiovascular adverse effects.
Studies say that 1 in 3 infants out of 1000 have a 50% chance of losing their hearing capacity from a young age. Sadly there is no way to tell which of us will experience this problem, so we have to do all our best to prevent it.
Our DJ has shown us a few ways to combat the serious level of noises around us, starting from our apartments and going deep inside the loud clubs.
Let’s think we are sitting inside and we are quietly watching TV, when the neighbor starts to turn the music up and annoy you with the loud sound. Here you have two choices, either you ask your neighbor in a friendly way to turn the music down, or you close all your windows and take a few safety precautions.
The ultimate solution for loud noise is unquestionably the ear plugs. These small objects can be kept on you all time and you can use them anytime you feel the need.
But I think the most important thing is to be aware. There are a lot of useful apps these days that can measure the sound levels of the noise around. When you feel that the sound is out of control, pull out your phone and see if it’s truly over the top. If you see it’s over 120 dB, get out of there immediately!
You can also keep an eye on your heart beats and chest movement. Your heart will tell you when the music is very agitated; also the bass is enhanced in every club so make sure you check your chest for irregular movements.
If things don’t go as planned, try to take a break every hour from the loud noise and relax yourself outside with a breath of fresh air.
