3 Tips to Help Keep Your Blood Pressure in Check

By Virginia Laird

Do you struggle to maintain a healthy blood pressure? If so, you are not alone. Research suggests that many adults across the country have, at some point, struggled with the same battle. Health and wellness experts advise there are several things to do which can help control and regulate it. There is no reason to let the battle of blood pressure overwhelm you. A few simple things you can do include:

  • Make time to exercise
  • Stop smoking
  • Try reducing your stress

Make Time to Exercise

Making time for some exercise does not always mean stopping by the gym. While the facility may offer a variety of workouts, group exercise classes, and many other things to try, it is not the answer for everyone. Research suggests adding a brisk walk each day to your life can help bring these numbers in check. Health and wellness professionals recommend a 20- to 30-minute exercise at least three to four times a week can help control blood pressure, stabilize blood sugar, and even help with cholesterol levels. It's never too late to start exercising.

Stop Smoking Right Away

In this day and age, with all the research supporting the harmful effects of smoking, it is hard to believe that people continue to do it. However, many still struggle with this habit. If this describes you, it is time to consider stopping for your own health, as well as the health of those around you. Quitting this habit can reduce issues with blood pressure immediately. If you are struggling with this battle alone, there are multiple places which offer stop smoking workshops for free. It may be worth looking in your community for one of these programs.

Try Reducing Your Stress

If you are serious about managing your blood pressure, it's time to reduce your stress. While it can be difficult to overcome, there are things you can do to manage it. Research suggests that exercising, eating healthy, and getting enough sleep can help reduce stress in your life. It may be time for you to consider stopping by the gym on your way home from work to help release the tension that you had build-up throughout the day. Your family will be grateful that you let it go before you came home.

Making these habits part of your life can quickly turn your blood pressure issues into a thing of the past. It will not happen overnight. However, with determination and willpower, you may be able to reduce your medication use within a few months. Now is the time to make change happen.
