Blood pressure : When checking blood pressure a person should be sitting, resting, with their feet on the floor, in a quiet room for five minutes, and not eating or smoking at least 30 minutes. Blood pressure changes easily from eating, emotional stress, drugs, herbs, coffee, green tea, smoking, moving, pain, illness. Normal blood pressure is 90-119/60-79.
