Exercise & nutrition: Healthy lifestyle is best way to lower blood pressure w/o taking medication. That includes regular exercise, healthy nutrition (avoid excess salt), getting plenty of rest, losing belly fat as a result of all this, even meditating. Oh and quit smoking (don't start if you don't already do). Measure BP at home at rest & bring cuff in for calibration to allow proper interpretation of home BP.
