The sedentary lifestyle and carefree eating habits often puts you at a health risk. Even a pinch of salt which is added to pep up your food affects your health. Moreover, we don't realize the importance of annual health check-ups that can detect the possible health risks at an early stage. The result of this ignorance often leads you at a stage where you have to undergo treatment and spend on hefty bills.

The recent statistics say that every third person above the age of 18 years is suffering from high blood pressure. This issue is also brought into notice by World Health Organization (WHO) and hence, has selected Hypertension as the theme for the World's Health Day, which is celebrated on 7th April every year.

The rising rate of High Blood Pressure among young age groups is a cause that must be addressed on time. Have you recently arranged a visit for a health check-up? If you are shaking your head to say No, then you must get your BP checked to avoid heart-attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other serious illness. 

For those who have found out the problem, you can bring simple changes in your lifestyle to control your blood pressure such as:
  • Have a Balanced Diet
  • Reduce Intake Of Salt
  • Keep a Check of Body Weight
  • Avoid Consumption of Alcohol
  • Do Regular Physical Exercise
  • Avoid Use Of Tobacco
  • Increase your Intake of Water
  • Follow the Medication as Directed By The Doctor

These points are generic in nature. Hence, it is recommended to consult a doctor before following the above suggestions.

So, take an oath on this World's Health Day to give attention to your health while maintaining your personal and professional responsibilities.
