In brief: A few things to...

Keeping ideal body weight, eat healthy/no added salt, aerobic exercise regularly 4-5x/wk, reduce daily stresses, sleep well, and don't smoke etc.
.These are so called modifiable risk factor--you can't change genetic. Look up the dash-diet regimen (google it). Treat medical condition (chol, diabetes etc) well.If these fail to adequately lower your BP to less than 140/90, consult your doc..Good luck.

In brief: Healthy foods

A combination diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and low-fat dairy products and low in snacks, sweets, meats, and saturated and total fat are the best foods to lower high blood pressure.
This is also known as the "DASH diet". Best wishes.
