Lowering Your Blood Pressure

Dear Blog readers,

It is important to monitor your blood pressure and to lower it. Let me share with you some pointers to help you lower your blood pressure:

  • Breathe slowly – with music in your ears, breathe slowly! Or take time out to do yoga or meditation to calm you down
  • Walk briskly for 40 mins a day 
  • Reduce your salt intake – if your intake of salt is high, balance them with fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Cut down on caffeine and try drinking tea instead
  • Eat healthily – Take in lots of vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains!
