Directional hearing is extremely important, especially when you’re on the road. If you hear an ambulance approaching, for example, you need to get out of the way. You can practice this skill by standing in a busy square, for example, and picking out certain sounds. It might be a conversation, the sound of heels on the pavement, or a dog barking. Try to identify different sounds and determine the direction they’re coming from. This will also help train your concentration and working memory.
