High Blood Pressure Prevention

High blood pressure may be prevented by living a healthy lifestyle, including some of the following:
  • eating a nutritious, low-fat diet;

  • exercising regularly;

  • decreasing salt (sodium) intake, read food labels so you know the salt content before you buy a product in the grocery store or eating a meal at a fast food restaurant, and avoid adding salt to foods;

  • maintain a healthy weight and if you are overweight or obese, try to lose weight;

  • drink alcohol in moderation;

  • stop smoking;

  • get routine health assessments and blood pressure screening;

  • taking your blood pressure medications as directed, even if you're feeling fine; and

  • reduce stress and practice relaxation techniques, physical activity will help with this.
