How to sneak good practices into your daily routine.
Good eating habits, regular physical activity and weight management are important for controlling high blood pressure. Here are some fun strategies that can make it easy...
Eat a rainbow.
Pile on the fruits and veggies. Colorful and delicious, eating a fruit-and-veggie rich diet is a great way to help lower your blood pressure.
It's not all about "formal" exercise. Take the stairs. Park further away. Getting a total of 30 minutes of movement on most days is good.
Get a dog.
Not only can having a dog motivate you to walk more, but pet owners have been shown to have less of a physical reaction to stressors.
Remember, before beginning or modifying your diet or exercise program, talk to your doctor.
