For example, when we eat with our friends and we engaged in conversations, it is easy for us to not focus on what we eat; especially because our stomach cannot count on how many pieces of chicken wings we ate but we can see and count the bones. However, when we are not focus on eating, then we will not be able to pay attention. People in America eat until they are full while many other outside America eat until they are not hungry anymore. You are supposed to stop eating if you no longer feel hungry, but many people will rely on external cues that will make them stop eating such as, when they drinks are finished or when the bowl empty. Those things are the one that makes us overeat.
Older adults who are hard of hearing often report that their hearing loss causes communication problems, which can result in difficulty thinking or concentrating. This results in inattentiveness, distraction, and boredom. The most serious consequence is withdrawal or abandoning participation. Older adults with hearing loss face many of the same fears that anyone with a disability encounters. They worry about loss of significant relationships or jobs or about being perceived as incompetent.
Some of the symptoms of distress are mumbled/garbled speech or stammering, anxiety, anger, aggressive body language and concentrating problems. These are barriers that impact on effective communication, leading to misunderstanding on both sides. If you are the person in distress, you cannot hear or able to understand the whole picture because of the vicious cycle mentioned above. Individuals who are distressed will not be able to concentrate properly or focus fully, therefore their communication skills will be negatively affected. Whenever an individual becomes distressed they may experience the sense of "self" being compromised, as in low self esteem, effective communication may suffer as an individual feels withdrawn or stressed.
Individual’s self-esteem can be low, and their body language may be closed or negative, this can make communication difficult with an individual whom is distressed because you may not get any feed back from them, or you may not get a change to talk or be listened to to help them. The individual may even talk a different language or revert back to their mother tongue, which can cause a communication barrier. Also if the individual has a learning disability they may not understand how/why they are feeling, or may not know how to express it. 1.4 Explain how working with an individual who is distressed may impact on own well-being. Working with a person whom is distressed can also be distressing for the person caring and comforting
Many blind and partially sighted people lose the ability to see gestures and facial expressions, which are important parts of communication. It becomes difficult for them to know when someone is speaking to them or even when the other person has wailed away. Written communication can be difficult for a person with low vision.

This will affect communication due to their behaviour may mean they are too scared to talk, or be spoken to. Physical and mental health factors need to be taken into account when communicating with someone with dementia, they may also be hard of hearing, or have limited eyesight.
Broadly, fluency disorders can be classified as stuttering or cluttering. Stuttering is a common speech disorder in persons of all ages that can cause disturbances in the normal fluency and time patterning of speech.  In a person with stuttering, the interruption in the forward flow of speech is manifested as excessive pauses, stress and effort – both mental and physical.  In a person with cluttering, on the other hand, there is a lack of pauses
The Five barriers of communication and strategies to overcome them. Physical Disabilities (e.g. hearing problems, speech difficulties and blindness/vision impairments) For people with vision impairments, physical disabilities like hearing problems and speech difficulties effective communication can be very hard. For example when somebody is talking they may use signs or facial expressions or hand gestures to help explain what they’re saying, but for people who are visually impaired this can be difficult and sometimes impossible (e.g. blindness).
Resultantly poor snack choices result in too many high-energy, low-nutrient foods. For example, salty snacks, such as packets of crisps, may be poor value as they give few nutrients. Children who are both physically active and growing need to refuel periodically throughout the day. Parents and other caretakers have the critical role in helping
