High Blood Pressure

After a few years of being on the high side, about a year ago my blood pressure went sky high!  It was enough to shock me into action and, if I’m really honest, it was not before time.                                                                                                         pb

A little research revealed the main causes of high BP are:

  • age
  • genetics
  • stress
  • too much salt
  • not eat enough fruit and vegetables
  • not being active enough
  • being overweight
  • drinking alcohol

Although nothing can be done about the first two, I began to work my way through the rest of the list.

The first thing I did was to give up drinking alcohol – on 23rd June it will be a year.

Yeah!! One down five to go!
