How To Lower Your Blood Pressure
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Did you recently go to the doctor and learn that your blood pressure was higher than it should have been? Perhaps you have been feeling a little lightheaded recently and felt like you might faint. You can have a better visit with your doctor and avoid having any more scary episodes by taking steps to lower your blood pressure.

One way to lower your blood pressure is to go to Confession. Sit down with a priest, confess your sins, and be absolved. You will feel better once you have been relieved of your guilt. Letting go of the guilt will allow you to focus on your normal activities, rather than being distracted by what is bothering you. You might be a college student who is pursuing a master's degree in creative writing, for example. As part of this degree, you are required to write many pieces of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. You need to be able to focus on your work so that you can get good grades and stay in school. You might also have a job at a pet store which involves bathing animals, for example. When you can focus on your work, you can give several baths in the course of your shift, rather than being distracted and doing just one or two baths during your workday.

Another way to lower your blood pressure is to exercise. Exercise will help you to burn fat and calories, which will help you to lose weight. If you weigh less, it will be easier to move around, and your heart will not have to work so hard.

Third, eat a healthy diet. Avoid consuming too much fat or sugar. Try to eat more vegetables. Focusing on vegetables will keep you healthy, give your body some necessary nutrients, and help you to manage your weight.

Finally, learn to control your stress. Find an activity that you enjoy, and do it regularly. Perhaps you enjoy reading. Read. Go to the library and look for best-selling books by your favorite author. Spend time with loved ones. Find out what they have been doing, and keep up with family events. Did they just get a dog, for example? Find out how the dog is adjusting to its new home and how the family is adjusting to the new family member.

When you can lower your blood pressure, you should feel better. You may be able to avoid costly hospitalizations and medications. Your next visit with your doctor should go much better.
