High Blood Pressure Awareness Month

High Blood Pressure Awareness MonthMay is High Blood Pressure Awareness Month.  High blood pressure, or hypertension, is known as the silent killer and for good reason.  High blood pressure can seriously endanger a person’s health, and it generally builds up gradually over time as a result of unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, and oftentimes does not display any symptoms

Now we love sitting on our super comfy Contempo Sofas, but, even so, we have to admit that if you don’t get off the couch every now and then and maintain a healthy weight, you can seriously endanger your health.  High blood pressure is a dangerous condition and can be avoided through regular exercise, a healthy diet with limited salt intake, and avoidance of excessive drinking or smoking.

High blood pressure is a serious health issue.  Educate yourself at www.heart.org.
