Are you worried about your high blood pressure? Sometimes,

negligence and ignorance can pay a heavy price. Here, I have

compiled a few simple tips for you to bring your seething blood

pressure down. 


1. Relax. It is one of the mantras for a healthy living. Meditation

and yoga can bring inner peace and control anger and rush of

adrenaline.


2. Exercise can control your shooting blood pressure. If you are

not used to used to exercise then try walking for half and hour and

yoga. But, at any cost, regular physical activity is a must. It

helps blood circulation and your cardiovascular capacity.

unsalted nuts, avoid instant soups and read labels of ready made

foods. Also eat fresh food as far as possible.
