Last week, I went for my annual exam. For my entire life, my blood pressure was 90/60 even when I was pregnant. Over the last couple of years, I’ve seen it creeping every so slightly higher, not to a dangerous level; however, no me gusta! One of the things my Nurse Practitioner shared with me on this visit is that arteries change with age; and that I shouldn’t expect those numbers to reappear. I’m not willing to accept that idea.
Even though I’ve always been a healthy eater, I felt it was time to make some changes to be more diligent and more consistent with my healthy routine. What does that include? Exercise, diet, and supplementation. I realized that it might be time for me to be a little more proactive in my retention of good health.
I made some small adjustments and have already noticed some differences — no more occasional fluttering of my heart, no more feeling it beating noticeably when I go to bed, and much more stamina during exercise — just like the “old” days. That’s what I wanted to see! It didn’t take too much effort or even time; however, I feel it has created massive benefit! I’m happy with it.
