In brief: Diet & Exercise

Like most medical conditions, prevention or minimizing symptoms can usually be achieved by tight diet control and regular exercise.
If you have hypertension, the best lifestyle changes include a healthy low-sodium diet, regular aerobic exercise 3-5 times per week, and giving yourself time to relax. If you smoke, quit. Aside from diet and exercise, it's the best thing you can do for your health.
