What exercises can I do to lower my blood pressure?
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times—regular exercise helps reduce high blood pressure. But beyond the general definition of exercise – physical activity – what exactly does that mean? And with all the tried and true to trending forms of exercise, what works best? Given all the options, the answer might be simpler than you think.
Do Sweat It
For those just getting started, you don’t have to run a marathon to reap the benefits. Something as simple as walking can get your blood pumping and have you on your way to a healthier heart.
Working in a little resistance training will make you far less likely to sustain injuries and can improve your joint and bone health. And, as you might have guessed, all of this is good for your blood pressure and heart health.
Namaste Away From Hypertension
In other good news, if done regularly (and correctly) yoga can help to reduce your risk of injury. Which, in turn can help to keep you active, and that’s definitely a good thing for your heart health.
