Fighting Stress and High Blood Pressure
Stress happens when we are faced with difficult or uncomfortable situations in life and can have many different effects on us. The stress response is typically referred to as the "fight or flight" response because the changes that happen within our bodies due to stress help us to prepare for one of those two actions.
During this time, our blood pressure will increase as will our heart rate and respiration rate. And unless a counter-active (relaxation) response is triggered, we can sustain these changes in our bodies longer that is normal or healthy.
However, while it's known that stress increases our blood pressure temporarily, it's unclear if stress causes long-term high blood pressure.
To avoid turning those temporary spikes into damaging events, managing your stress is vital. Exercise is a great tool that can not only relieve stress but it also works to combat high-blood pressure.
In addition to exercise, learning many different stress management activities can increase your overall health and sense of well being.
Taking the time to do things you enjoy in life can help to keep you feeling young and full of life. Ignoring your passions in life can increase your anxiety, stress, and blood pressure.
As always, be sure you involve your doctor in your plans. They can check your blood pressure for you and help you to understand what a normal range is. In addition, they can help you with different treatment options if you experience long-term high blood pressure or are unable to find ways to lower it when necessary.
