Ways to get to a normal blood pressure.
Blood pressure is just one of those things everyone is
always worried about.
Like cholesterol, a high blood pressure can lead to a lot of
serious heart and circulatory issues, none of which are very fun.
If you don’t have a normal blood pressure, like me, it is
there for all the more reason to stay up late panicking, which in itself can really boost your
This little catch-22 is actually possible as anxiety and
stress are two big reasons to not have a normal blood pressure.
So if you don’t have a normal blood pressure, don’t freak
out about it, as that’ll only make it worse.
To try and keep a more normal blood pressure, it’s a good
idea not to stress about anything. Learn some good meditation techniques, put on some
soothing music, take some deep breaths and relax!
If you’re pounding caffeineated beverages all day and
stressing out about one thing or another, it’s no surprise you don’t have a normal blood
So what is a normal blood pressure?
From my understanding a blood pressure of 120 over 80 is
widely considered the standard for normal blood pressure. Upwards to 140 over 90 is still
considered normal blood pressure, but over that is definitely too high.
If you don’t have a normal blood pressure, there are things
you can do to lower it. In addition to relaxing and reducing caffeine, like I discussed
above, exercise and cutting down on salt intake will help a lot. Exercise more than anything
is a great way to strengthen your heart, which will allow it to do its job without having to work
so hard and raise your blood pressure. Just keeping a good diet and going for regular runs
alone has worked wonders for me toward getting a normal blood pressure. When I cut back on
caffeine, it dropped even more.
It has been a long an ardurous journey for me to realize a
normal blood pressure, but I am finally getting close. It has been a lifelong goal of mine to
be one of those rare select few with a normal blood pressure. To celebrate my almost normal
blood pressure, I think I’m going to have a nice fatty steak with lots of salt on it, and spend the
next few weeks sitting in front of the television and panicking about the impending doom we all
face because of all the wars everywhere.
