Control of Blood Pressure within the Normal Range
Tension and anger causes your blood pressure to rise, if things go on like this, elevated blood pressure will damage your blood vessels. Therefore patients with high blood pressure should maintain emotional stability.
If the patient is able to commence drug treatment, in the meantime, avoid too heavy psychological burden, change the lifestyle and do some self-comfort, the condition is controllable and there will also be fewer complications.
A change of patient's mood may often cause some fluctuation of blood pressure. While do some handwork such as knitting, carving or painting can stabilize the mood. It is also good for stabilizing and controlling the disease. Furthermore, when meeting a dissatisfied person or thing, one should avoid straight conflict. Instead, please try to look at the bright side of things. And also remember not to lose your temper or send yourself into a sulk. One should also cultivate a variety of interests, wear a smile often and be optimistic and relaxed.
Do not always focus your attention on the disease: being oversensitive when feeling just a little bit discomfort and thus, suspect if the blood pressure is high or if there occurs a complication, being worried and apprehensive all the time. For the patients with elevated blood pressure, stabilizing the mental status is the key to stabilizing the blood pressure.
Participating in group activities and social activities, reducing the sense of loneliness and the sense of loss, enhancing the sense of self-worth will make a broad mind.
Do good things for others and the society. One can find pleasure in helping others, thus stimulating brain to release endorphin, a natural sedative. It helps to adjust the balance of psychological and physiological functions.
The aged should be adept to handle the relationships with children, grandchildren and neighbors. It can enhance the sense of safety and keep the mind calm.
Recall the past less and long for the future more. Often recalling the past can cause the mood fluctuations easier. Longing for the future more can cause one to feel that there’re many things to do, which not only adds fun to life but also leads to a healthy mental status.
Take physical examination timely, use the drug rationally and treat the disease positively.
Ensure adequate rest, sleeping time may be controlled between 7-8 hours. Adequate sleeping time is good for the control of blood pressure and mood the next day.
Proper exercises, the aged can choose to take walks.
When having an emotional disturbance, please let the psychologist give you instructions or treatments.
