Hello Friends! Have a wonderful and safe day!
Why did I feel writing something about blood pressure? Firstly, I’m totally a fitness freak person, that’s why I often check blood pressure at home with an automatic machine. Secondly, yesterday, my mom has high blood pressure. That makes me worried. I have read a lot on Google and consult with doctors to control blood pressure. Right now, she is currently cooking and totally fine. So I’m happy 🙂
If you are taking medications to lower your blood pressure then I can’t suggest you to stop taking your medications because no one wants to take medications to control blood pressure.
Suggestion: Monitor Your Blood Pressure Daily
Checking your blood pressure at home will give you the opportunity to show your doctor how your blood pressure is doing – you could send recorded screenshots by email or phone. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms so the only way to find out if you’ve high blood pressure is monitor your blood pressure with an automatic machine & just do it on daily basis if you want to avoid or reduce taking the medications you are currently taking.
Do you have high blood pressure? Today I’ll give you complete information about high blood pressure. Healthy lifestyle changes can help you naturally lower your blood pressure.
Regular Exercise Daily
Exercise is one of the best thing you can do control your high blood pressure. Physical activity, specifically aerobic activity (walking, jogging, dancing), is good fitness routine in reducing blood pressure. You can also enjoy your favorite aerobic activity. The American Heart Association says that 30 minutes of moderate physical activity (walking, jogging, and swimming) each day can keep your heart healthy.
Bottom Line: Doing 150 minutes of aerobic activity, 75 minutes of vigorous exercise a week can lower blood pressure 5 to 8 mmHg and improve your heart health.
Don’t Take Work Stress
Stress is not good for many different reasons. When we have a lot of work stress we raise our heart rates and thus raising our blood pressure. Infusing a few simple, healthy habits into your lifestyle can help lower your stress levels For example: Get enough sleep, enjoy your favorite music, meditating, and connect with others.
Reduce Sodium Intake
A high-sodium intake increases blood pressure in many people. In fact, sodium is directly associated with high blood pressure. In fact, the less sodium you eat, the better blood pressure control you might have. Stay away from high sodium foods like canned foods, processed foods, lunch meats and fast foods. If salty foods are avoidable, avoid them and only choose low-sodium foods.
Eat More Potassium-rich Foods
Potassium, magnesium, and fiber, on the other hand, may help control blood pressure. Foods that helps to lower blood pressure: Berries, Bananas, Beets, Dark Chocolate, Kiwis, Watermelon, Oats, Leafy green vegetables, Garlic, Lentils, Pomegranates, Yogurt and Cinnamon
Limit Alcohol Use
Alcohol is high in calories and sugar. It increases in unwanted weight gain and obesity can further elevate the risk of high blood pressure on a long-term basis. To better prevent high blood pressure, the American Heart Association suggests limiting alcohol intake to no more than 2 drinks per day for men and no more than 1 drink per day for women.
