Mask Hacks for an Easier Day
As we near the year-long mark of the pandemic, many have gone back to work or school in some form or another. And if they have, there’s no doubt they have new rules that require masks to be worn during the day. While wearing them every now and then to go to the store is one thing, wearing them all day, all week is quite another. The constant pull of the straps on the ears can be painful and could actually develop sores on the ears if done too often. Luckily, a year-long pandemic has given rise to a vast number of tricks to make wearing your mask much easier on your ears. The helpful nurses as Nurse.org have shared their favorite hacks for making masked days easier;
- Sew a button onto a hat to hook the mask onto
- Wrap the straps into a high hair bun
- Wearing a strap connector behind the head
- Attach the straps to a headband
- Use rubber bands and a paper clip to extend the strap lengths
Whether you use any of the ideas or your own creative ideas, there can be any number of ways to protect your ears. Face masks are great for protection from the current virus crisis, but sometimes we can forget about the little problems that pop up during a big change such as this. So give these tricks a try and protect your ears.
