If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, it is important to realize that it is a chronic disease that you will have to deal with for the rest of your life. Even if you feel better, you should continue to take your medication and follow the recommendations for people with the disease, as treatment is only effective if you try to eliminate risk factors for the disease. According to health experts the following are basic rules that all people with high blood pressure must follow in their daily lives.
Do not drink alcohol or smoke, as these harmful habits increase heart rate and increase blood pressure.
Give up salt, or at least reduce your intake to 5 - 6 g per day.
Plan your diet carefully: don't eat high-fat foods, avoid spicy chips, refined sugar, sugary drinks and drink plenty of fluids, and eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible.
Allow at least half an hour a day for physical activity. Modern people have less and less mobility both at work and in their free time, so it is important to spend as much time as possible in sports, as this helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Try to reduce the level of stress you experience, get enough sleep, and spend as much time outdoors as possible.
According to doctors, every patient with high blood pressure must be determined to make lifestyle changes, as this can help control the disease, delay its development and prevent its painful consequences. Fight for your heart health, even with high blood pressure, self-help and regular testing will help you feel better and live a better life.
