    Oh all the usual ones that healthy people tout:  keep stress down, stay at a healthy weight, exercise and eat oatmeal.

    Besides heading to the Dr. and getting on blood pressure medicine.

    Walk more each day, and don’t use the car for short journeys.

    Run more each day.  Even if its just one or two blocks, just do it!
    Take the stairs instead escalator.
    Cycle or walk to work.
    Take the dog out on longer walks, or get your friends or neighbors together and go for a group, neighborhood watch walk.
    Take a walk during your lunch hour, and then after work, go for another walk.
    Think about activities you used to enjoy, with emphasis on used to.  Go and do them this weekend.  Go easy on yourself, don't go from having high blood pressure to breaking a leg!

    Garlic pills, an aspirin a day and a lot of water. Mine is also down significantly since I've been losing weight and not eating as much processed food.
