Quit smoking

Quitting smoking is also one best way to reduce blood pressure as smoking will raise your blood pressure. Nicotine will change your neuronal activities and that can lead to signalling to your body that will lead to an increase in blood pressure. Nicotine works to make you super hyper and that can lead to more activities in your body and thus higher
blood pressure.


Quit doing drugs

Doing drugs can cause high blood pressure, because drugs can alter your nervous systems leading to signals to the rest of your body that are not at the optimum level. It can send signals to your body that will lead to an increase in blood pressure.

Lose weight

You will also loosen up your blood vessels and giving it a stretch so blood flows are more freely leading to lower blood pressure. Exercising also lead to weight loss so this will also lower blood pressure by
putting less stress on the heart, brain and body. Exercise is the best medicine out there.

When you're stressed out, your neurons will send signals to the rest of your body, and that can result in an increase in blood vessel cause your blood vessels constrict and that increase the pressure. The neurons have a lot control over your body too so anything that is sense in your brain will result in your changes in blood pressure. This is when you have an argument, worries, stress, anger, resentment, anxiety, as it will all lead to increase in blood pressure.
