Managing Your Blood Pressure

How to manage and monitor your blood pressure

Managing and monitoring your blood pressure doesn't have to be a hassle. In fact, if you make a habit of it, managing your blood pressure can become second nature and a natural part of your daily activities.

I'm Heart Healthy Henry and I'm going to give you some tips and tricks as to how to manage and monitor your blood pressure in order to live a healthier and happier life.

Eat Healthy

The saying goes that you are what you eat, and it's not too far from the truth. If you eat unhealthy, you are unhealthy. It's important to eat a healthy and balanced diet in order to maintain good blood pressure.

To keep your blood pressure in tip-top shape, you'll want to focus on a diet that is high in fruits and vegetables and you'll want to avoid foods with cholesterol, fat and sodium. By eating right, you'll be on your way to better health in no time.

In Addition To Diet

In addition to your diet, take some health supplements that are known to reduce blood pressure. Supplements like the one available at this website are great for maintaining overall good health.

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise

I can't say it enough. Exercise is an extremely important part of maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. If you're sedentary, get off your seat and move. Exercise for a half an hour a day -- at least three days a week if not everyday.

Monitor Regularly

In addition to staying healthy, it's also important to monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis.

There are a number of blood pressure monitors that you can purchase for use in your home. They range in price from $20 to well over $100, so just make sure the one you buy is easy to use and that it's accurate. Without accuracy, your blood pressure monitor is pretty much worthless.

If you just can't spare the cash to monitor your blood pressure at home, go to your local grocery store or drug store and see if they have a complimentary blood pressure monitor there. Many stores are offering free blood pressure readings. You simply sit down at the machine and the blood pressure reading is done for you on the spot.

Your health and your blood pressure should be top on your list of priorities. By following the above advice, you're sure to be on the right track to monitoring and maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.
