Tips for Lowering Blood Pressure

Lifestyle changes are an effective way to lower your blood pressure and can be used alongside medication you’ve been prescribed. To maintain or lower blood pressure, it’s important to: 1) Exercise regularly: 30-60 minutes of moderate activity 4-7 days per week. 2) Eat healthy: try the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. 3) Reduce stress: relaxing, exercising, meditating, and getting plenty of sleep. 4) Limit alcohol and caffeine. 5) Quit smoking. 6) Maintain a healthy weight: maintain a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 and a waist circumference of less than 102 cm (men) and less than 88 cm (women).
