Stress management is important when it comes to preventing and treating hypertension. Have a look at these seven strategies suggested by Haward experts,

  • Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep or inadequate poor-quality sleep can have negative effect on your mood, mental alertness, energy level, and physical health.
  • Learn what relaxation techniques suits you best and practice regularly, some of effective mode of relaxation includes Meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, deep breathing exercises, and yoga.
  • Be socially active. Connect with others by taking a class, joining an organization, or participating in a support group.
  • Learn time management skills. The more efficiently you can juggle work and family demands, the lower your stress level.
  • Get control of stressful situations if you can. Don't let stressful situations aggravate. Hold family problem-solving sessions and use negotiation skills at home and at work.
  • Take care of yourself. Treat yourself to a massage. Take pleasure in an experience: for example, eat slowly and really focus on the taste and sensations of each bite. Take a walk or a nap, or listen to your favourite music.
  • Ask for help. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your spouse, friends, and neighbours.

 If stress and anxiety continue, consult your physician.
