Limit alcohol to one drink per day. Drinking too much, too often, can increase your blood pressure, so practice moderation. 6. Relieve stress with daily meditation or deep breathing sessions. Stress hormones can not only constrict your blood vessels and lead to temporary spikes in blood pressure, but over time can also trigger unhealthy habits that put your cardiovascular health at risk. These might include overeating, poor sleep, and misusing drugs and alcohol. Controlling stress should be a top priority. 7. Take Magnesium. Check with your doctor.
