You may need medical: High blood pressure needs an evaluation and possibly treatment from a doctor. If the BP is running over 140/90 when you are restful and calm, it requires treatment for which you should visit your doctor especially if you have multipme readings over several days show high blood pressure values.

BP up? Act now!: Hypertension is a serious matter. See your physician and get on medication while doing the following at home. Get down to your proper weight. Low salt and ideally plant/fruit based diet. Exercise every day, even simple walking for over 30 minutes. Get any emotional issues under control. Laugh. Love. Be sure you don't have sleep apnea. Eat potassium rich foods. Monitor your BP at home too!

See doctor: Your family doctor can check your blood pressure, and some drug stores have machines that screen for high blood pressure. If your pressure is high it needs to be treated, because it can lead to kidney failure, stroke and heart attacks.
