Usually...: Weight loss and exercise (which may or may not be applicability to you). Recognize that in some people (after complete medical evaluation) even after the above are met blood pressure remains high. In this case, even though it requires a pill, controlling blood pressure will give you more years to enjoy your life.

Low sodium diet: Try to adhere to a low sodium diet. You can accomplish this by making sure that all the sodium in the foods eaten in one day add up to less than 2000 mg daily. Keep in mind that the average american eats about 2-3x this amount.

Several things: First, maintaining ideal body weight and regular aerobic exercise is essential. By regular, i mean at least 20-30 minutes of aerobic exercise 4-5 days per week at a minimum. Second, relaxation activities are very useful in lowering blood pressure and keeping it low. These activities include listening to music, yoga, meditation, aroma therapy, water therapy.

Exercise, diet, calm: First thorough checkup to make sure BP is not in danger range requiring meds, that exercise is safe and that there is not an easily treatable cause. Then regular cardio workouts 3 times a week, diet to lose excess weight and avoid masses of salt, calming practices such as meditation and yoga may be very helpful as well. If BP well over 140/90, meds are likely to be required even so.
