  • Do a breathing exercise. Take a deep breath from your core, hold your breath for about two seconds, and then slowly exhale. Pause for a few moments and repeat.
  • As stress is a key contributor to high blood pressure, relaxing can be the way to reduce cases of crises. This may be as simple as sitting in a quiet room for a few moments, doing a few stretching exercises, reading a good book, or meditating.

These techniques can provide a quick fix, but it’s important to have a professional accompaniment to manage your high blood pressure successfully.
