Improve your hypertension with good old exercise

Improve your hypertension with good old exercise.

Did you know that an overwhelming 75 percent of people over the age of 60 have hypertension? This isn’t a small number and certainly not one to be ignored. Defined as blood pressure greater than 140/90 mmHg, hypertension puts you at an increased risk for heart attack, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, kidney damage, vision loss, angina, and memory loss if left untreated. The frequency of high blood pressure is particularly puzzling since a few simple lifestyle changes can greatly reduce your risk for hypertension and the risks that go along with it.

What is one of the most effective natural treatments? Exercise! In fact, just a month of increased activity can lower your blood pressure by five to seven points. For mild to moderate cases of hypertension, exercise and a healthy diet can work wonders, but a blood pressure reading of 180/110 mmHg or above is an emergency situation requiring medication plus lifestyle changes to reach the safe zone.

As you age, it’s important to get your blood pressure checked at least once a year. Don’t take an elevated reading lightly. Start exercising today to lower your numbers.

Five steps to a more organized life.

Ever feel like your life is spinning out of control? The house is a mess, you’re late to every appointment, and you forget important dates. You envy people who seem to have it all together. How do they do it? Well, their organized lives didn’t happen overnight, so don’t expect yours to either.

Becoming organized is a process that must be cultivated over time. Intimidating as this may sound, the good news is that it’s never too late to start. The beginning of a new year is the perfect opportunity to develop habits that lead to a more organized life at home, work, and on the go.

Adopt a few of these resolutions and see how your life changes for the better (and more organized).
