Taking good care of your hearing aids can significantly prolong their life. *Make sure your hands are clean and dry before handling your hearing aids. *Clean them regularly using your hearing aid cleaning kit. *Remove hearing aids before showering, bathing, or swimming and store in a dry location away from condensation. *Remove them before applying perfume or hair spray. *Store them in their case or drying cup away from heat sources and direct sunlight. *If you won’t be using your hearing aids for an extended period, remove the batteries and store them separately. *Use a hearing aid expert if you need repairs.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Have you ever been told that you kick a lot during the night? Or perhaps your spouse does. This could be due to Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). The nerve receptors in the bottom of your feet are hyper-sensitive, and this disorder is part of the nervous system that causes involuntary movement of the legs. RLS usually interferes with sleep and is also considered a sleep disorder. People with chronic diseases like Parkinson’s, diabetes, and peripheral neuropathy often experience RLS. Sleep is important, even more rest is important. So wear at least one Voxxlife sock to bed to calm the nerve receptors.

Boost Mental Health & Performance at Work

Boost Mental Health & Performance at Work
During this global pandemic, the need for mental health support has increased fourfold. As an employee, the best thing you can do for your mental health is to be vocal. If you are struggling, speak up or use the Wellness Together Canada free resources. Waiting causes longer term damage impacting productivity and quality of life. If you are an employer, ask how you can support your team every day. Then, get a Mental Health First Aid kit and put it somewhere visible to demonstrate mental health is just as important as physical health. Our mental health kits contain motivational cards, mindfulness colouring and tools, stress balls, breathing exercises, a guide to psychological first aid, resilience tips, and much more.

Why Wear Compression Socks?

How much do you move during the day? If you spend a lot of time sitting, your calf muscles that usually help pump blood through your veins do very little. This can cause swelling and blood to pool in the lower legs. Standing all day can have the same effect. Walking is a great exercise to help the calf muscles do their job. Socks with compression squeeze your legs to move blood up your leg whether you are sitting or standing. Voxx Knee Highs offer gentle compression, are comfortable to wear and have HPT to help with pain, balance and stability.

Who Are You?

Truly getting to know ourselves is not something that happens quickly, and we won’t experience a sense of fulfillment until we know what it is that brings meaning to our lives. Reflecting upon the patterns of your day is a good place to start in your quest for self-knowledge. It only requires a few minutes a day of quiet meditation or journaling to take note of patterns you like or patterns that once were good, but are not serving you anymore. What would you like to allow more of in your life? These questions and awareness can transform your life.

The Importance of Iron

Iron is an essential element for blood production. About 70% of your body’s iron is found in hemoglobin, which is essential for transferring oxygen in your blood from your lungs to your tissues. If you struggle with any kind of inflammation, this production can be reduced, and being low on iron phosphate means your body will struggle to supply oxygen to your cells. Deficiency symptoms can include fatigue, low to moderate fevers, a weak immune system, a red face, nosebleeds, sore throats, anemia, and blood problems. Luckily, iron phosphate can easily be supplemented with homeopathic cell salt #4 Ferrum Phos.
