Tip 1 - Sleep Schedules Insomnia is a major problem that affects your health and productivity. One way to reduce your chance of developing insomnia is to maintain a sleep schedule seven days a week, even during vacations. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. Your body will eventually maintain this habit of healthy sleeping. Tip 2 - Could You Have High Blood Pressure? The amount of adults tested was found that the majority of our adult population suffers from high blood pressure. The frightening fact is that 31% of those with high blood pressure were unaware that they even had it. Additionally, less than a quarter of those with hypertension were taking medication to help lower their pressure. Make sure that you have a full physical at least once a year, even if you are feeling healthy, as high blood pressure and many other illnesses often do not present any symptoms. Also, don't forget that maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a healthy diet, can lower your blood pressure.
