May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month
Blood pressure is the strength of the blood flow against the walls of the heart's arteries. One in three people in the U.S. have high blood pressure. Managing stress and maintaining a healthy weight are a few ways to maintain a healthy blood pressure. HERE are other things you can do to keep your blood pressure under control.
Spending time with friends is time well spent. As you finish the school year and begin your Summer break, keep in mind that having good friends is good for more than just companionship.
