My husband gave blood the other day and was told that he has high blood pressure.
It rattled the two of us.
Thankfully he is just on the cusp of being dangerous. He is just considered a bit high, nothing that requires medication. After hearing about it though, my husband wanted a lifestyle change. I was more than willing to adjust how we live to make him healthier. I recognized that our careers cause a lot of stress in our day to day lives. My husband and I both have managed to get online based jobs now that we can set our own hours. It is project based, rather than time based. That way if it is too much work, reducing it is easy. This is better for our mental health. With physical health I have pushed my husband to start working out with me. We go for a swim on the weekends, bike rides and play tennis during the week. He feels so much better and is able to sleep easier at night. For emotional well being I have pushed cannabis. Cannabis is known to reduce stress, promote sleep and help with lowering blood pressure. The marijuana store near me offers a whole laundry list of products. The two of us browsed and talked to a budtender for over an hour. It was decided that vaping a cannabis oil a few times a day would be best for my husband. The cannabis oil is made to mellow him out and relax him. It also is supposed to lower his blood pressure. We shall see.
