Hypertension, or high blood pressure, kills quietly as there are not any obvious signs. It can be quite difficult to see outer signs of high pressure building up in a person’s blood vessels. And extra stress on arteries normally leads to a heart attack, a stroke, or heart failure.
Here is what you can do to reduce the risk of high blood pressure:
- Spend more time with family and friends.
- Do aerobic exercises.
- Drink less alcohol.
- Reduce the size of your waistline.
- Cut intake of salt and add more fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Reduce the level of stress and get enough sleep.
- Quit smoking.
