A couple weeks ago I had a physcial and the doctor told me he wanted me to monitor my blood pressure for a month and report back.
I’ve been averaging in the 135/88 range and little lower in the morning.
The other day I was just having stressful day, and decided to take my blood pressure, the reading said, 153/100.
That is a very high blood pressure, I never had that high a blood pressure reading.
OK. What should I do?
Call the doctor? Take a aspirin?
How about Mediation?
That’s right. Why not try mediation?
I been taking the 21-Day Meditation Challenge with Depok Chopra, and had finished day 7 few days ago and I have even heard Doctors are now recommending mediation to lower blood pressure, stress, better sleeping, and many other health challenges.
So I went into my room.
I put my “Silence Please. I am Meditating” sign on the door.
Then I proceeded for next 15 minutes to meditate.
Hey another 15 minute session can’t hurt.
I heard from my Trandental Meditation session, Liz and I attended, that meditation is helpful for blood pressure and stress and even recommended by the American Heart Association.
I took my BP after I finished my mediation.
I was shocked at the reading.
My blood pressure had drop to 123/78!
Over a 30 point drop in blood pressure in 30 minutes!
