Managing your blood pressure through your conversations with others

If you have hypertension or high blood pressure your are probably familiar with the idea of watching what you eat by not adding salt to your food or meals and cutting down on your weight.However have you considered that you can also manage your blood pressure through your conversations with others?You can do this by using some of the strategies I shall share with you in this post to cope with the stress that can arise through our daily conversations.

Coping with our conversations is important because  this is an activity we all participate in everyday. We interact with other through our conversations. We  do this by listening to others, talking to others and responding to what others say or have failed to do.Unless we are able to make the distinction between what needs a response what does not, we may end up getting worked up. The idea of getting worked is even a less acceptable option for you when you have high blood pressure.

A simple strategy for coping with the potential emotional tension that may sometimes arise from our daily conversations would be divide them into ‘Little rocks” and “heavy rocks”. Little rocks are those conversations you can either afford to overlook or can decide to ignore without losing out significantly. What is an example of little rock conversation?If you are  in the midst of a conversation with your brother and he is arguing that the sun goes round the earth, what will you say? Will you continue to argue even when you have shown him irrevocable evidence and he continues to argue? Arguing for arguing sake will only get you worked up and build up your blood pressure. This is an example of the “Little rocks” in a conversation. Let it go!
