In brief: Diet and Exercise

A healthy diet, low in salt, high in potassium found in fruits and vegetables, along with moderate exercise and keeping your weight under control will go a long way to prevent the onset of high blood pressure.
Along with regular check ups by your personal physician.

Managing stress effectively and getting at least seven hours of sleep a night are also important

also keeping your magnesium levels up including a good quality magnesium supplement provided you do not have any contraindications to taking magnesium will help keep your cardiovascular system healthy.
