How to Keep Your Blood Pressure Down

High blood pressure often has no symptoms but can be dangerous to millions of people worldwide. These five lifestyle changes can significantly lower your risk with no medications needed.

Stay active

Staying active can be as easy as opting for the stairs instead of the elevator, going for a bike ride or going to the gym. This will increase your heart and breathing rates, allowing your heart to pump with less effort.

Practice self-care

Treat yourself to what makes you happy, whether it be a massage, a nap or listening to your favorite music. These blissful activities can be stressbusters.

Learn relaxation techniques

Meditation or yoga can be powerful methods to reduce stress. Along with other relaxation techniques, this can help you control your breathing, improve your posture and relax your muscles.

Prioritize Sleep

Poor-quality sleep can negatively affect your blood pressure. If getting sleep isn’t easy for you, try setting a regular sleeping schedule, exercise during the day and make your bedroom a relaxing space.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Talk to your doctor, family and friends if your stress and anxiety persists.
