Heart disease and stroke are among the leading causes of death in middle-aged and older adults. That is why keeping your blood pressure in check is essential to avoid hypertension and its resulting complications. Although prescription medications can help treat hypertension, a more effective and natural treatment method is to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
Here are some effective tips for keeping your blood pressure normal:
- Consuming a nutritious and well-balanced diet. It is essential to limit your sodium intake while also eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. DASH is the recommended meal plan (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) by experts
- Increasing physical activity through regular exercise
- Avoiding unhealthy habits such as excessive alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking
- Reducing stress through relaxation activities such as meditation or listening to music.
