So you found out that you have hypertension. Relax and take a few deep breaths. This just might be all you need to do to lower, control and eliminate your high blood pressure.
You and I both know that we live in a world of "everything must get done yesterday" as a result of today's technology. Expectations are higher know that we have instant communication with e-mail etc.
This leads to increase pressure and stress to get the job done. What happens if we continue at this breakneck speed? Eventually something has to give, you or your job.
Let's face it after working toward deadline after deadline you need to find some time to relax.
What if you could find ten to fifteen minutes a day to slow everything down to give you peace of mind, nerve control and relaxation?
Simple but not necessarily easy, is to learn how to do deep breathing. Research has shown us over and over again that deep diaphragmatic breathing is very effective at lowering high blood pressure.
This is why complimentary exercises like yoga and tai-chi are very good for stress relief as they have controlled breathing at the core of their routines.
These exercises are great if you time to take the classes; however if you don't, you can do your own deep breathing exercises at home or at work. All you need is ten to fifteen minutes a day.
You can do this lying down or sitting up in a chair. The key is for you to be comfortable. Start by breathing in for a count of two and exhaling for a count of three. As you get comfortable with this increase the breath in to a count of three and maintain exhalation at a count of three. Furthermore if you some form of relaxing music put it on a well.
Deep diaphragmatic breathing exercises alone will lower your blood pressure.
As you breathe in and out you are sending a message to the brain that "everything is alright". The brain then sends messages to both the heart and the arteries to relax and open up.
Here's the catch – you must do this on a daily basis to have long lasting effects. Each day builds a little on the previous day. You must do this breathing exercise everyday to condition the brain to send out messages to the heart and blood vessels to relax and stay wide open.
To be successful with the deep diaphragmatic breathing you need to be make the time and be consistent doing it.
