If you travel for business, you know how much jetlag and exhaustion impairs your ability to perform at your best. Yet, it’s hard to sleep when surrounded by others. Between the chatter of other passengers, the rumble of the engine, the sounds of traffic, and the snack cart, you awaken feeling more tired…if you manage to fall asleep. Let us help you!

If your career involves long-haul driving, you may recognize noise-induced exhaustion symptoms: Headache, extreme fatigue, irritability, difficulty sleeping, nagging ringing in the ears, or ear pain. These symptoms develop much faster in persons who have noise-induced hearing loss.
