Tomorrow is Friday the 13th! Even those among us who do not consider ourselves superstitious may feel a bit uneasy about the negative myths surrounding this day. These myths make us worry about “bad luck” and undermine our sense of control over our lives. And losing our sense of control can affect our actual control, because if we believe that our lives aren't in our control and are dictated more by luck than our own actions, we often just give up on trying to better ourselves.
And just as there are myths about Friday the 13th, so too are there myths about blood pressure control. Today let’s debunk some of the myths about blood pressure control, so that we can make our choices from a place of knowledge, rather than ignorance or myth.
So, I hope we’ve dispelled some of the myths about healthy blood pressure and its contribution to our pursuit of heart health. Friday the 13th or not, this need not be a matter of luck. Choice from knowledge!
Here’s to your health!
