According to medical studies from researchers at Harvard and other notable medical organizations, high blood pressure plays a considerable role in roughly 15% of all deaths in the U.S. High blood pressure is associated with heart disease, stroke, cognitive decline, development of aneurysms, and even organ failure. Nearly 30% of Americans have high blood pressure but don’t even know it. Fortunately, there are things can do to lower your blood pressure naturally. After checking your blood pressure and consulting with your doctor, you might want to adopt these strategies for decreasing your blood pressure and, in turn, reducing your risk for serious health problems.

1. Exercise Regularly

The American Heart Association encourages people to engage in moderate-to-vigorous exercise as a way to protect their heart and reduce blood pressure. Carefully assess your fitness level. While you might not be open to training for a marathon, there are steps you can take to improve your level of fitness. Take a walk every single day. Use the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Sign up for a low-impact aerobics class. Studies have demonstrated that even short bouts of exercise can reduce blood pressure. If you can exercise for 30 minutes each day, you can enhance your heart health and protect your overall well-being.
