What Else Can I Do to Help Lower My Blood Pressure?

Hormone replacement therapy at 25 Again helps, but there’s no doubt that lifestyle plays a large role in treating your high blood pressure. By adopting a healthier lifestyle, you can reduce the need for blood pressure medications. Some of these lifestyle changes include:

  • Exercise regularly. Consistency is the key. Try to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day by doing aerobic activities, such as walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming. Doing this on a regular basis can help lower your blood pressure to safer levels.
  • Eat healthier. Eating a diet that’s rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products can help you lose weight and lower your blood pressure. Know what you’re eating and make sure to read the labels when you’re shopping.
  • Reduce your sodium intake. Read the labels and pay close attention to the amount of sodium per serving. Ideally, those who can keep their sodium intake to around 1,500 mg a day or less will see positive results as it relates to blood pressure. To reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, try these tips:
    • Stay away from processed foods. Processed foods are often high in sodium, which can raise your blood pressure. Try to avoid these foods as much as possible.
    • Don’t add salt. Instead, use herbs or sodium-free spices to add flavor to your food. 
    • Ease into it. By gradually decreasing your sodium intake, your palate will have an easier time adjusting to the change. 
  • Limit alcohol. Moderate alcohol consumption – one drink a day for women and two a day for men – can actually be beneficial to your blood pressure. If you drink more, though, you can actually raise your blood pressure by several points. Drinking more can also reduce the effectiveness of any blood pressure medications you may be taking.
  • Quit smoking. Every time you smoke, you raise your blood pressure for many minutes after you’ve finished. Quitting smoking reduces your risk of heart disease and increases your overall health.
  • Watch your caffeine intake. While a lot is still unknown about the effects of caffeine on blood pressure, we do know that it affects some people more than others. To see if caffeine raises your blood pressure, check your pressure before and 30 minutes after you’ve had a caffeinated beverage.
  • Reduce your stress. Chronic stress can raise your blood pressure, so look for ways to reduce the amount of stress in your life. Making time to relax and taking part in activities you enjoy can work towards lowering your stress. Also, avoiding situations that lead to stress can also be helpful. If you get stressed being in crowded stores, for example, do your shopping during off-hours.
