I am 43 years old and I need to pay close attention to my health. This is why I am sharing with you The Importance Of Monitoring My Blood Pressure Regularly At Home.
Taking care of my health at home is pretty easy. I try to incorporate as many healthy ingredients in my diet as possible, I make sure I eat lots of vegetables every day, and I also try to exercise 2 to 3 times a week.
I can say that I live a healthy lifestyle and I am very happy to share with all of you that I do not take any medications or have any medical conditions. So far, so good. Fingers crossed!
Women after 40 need to be extra careful. Our bodies are not the same anymore, and our “engines” needs lots of special care to keep running efficiently. I can take care of my own health, but I definitely need some tools to help me feel stable and on track.
This is why I am thrilled to be part of the Omron’s campaign to raise awareness about the importance of regular blood pressure monitoring. They provided me with the Omron EVOLV, an upper arm blood pressure monitor. I will start taking my blood pressure regularly, and share with all of you what I learn from the readings. Stay tuned for more posts and updates soon!

Why Is It Important To Monitor Your Blood Pressure Regularly?
Monitoring your blood pressure and making sure you are in the normal range is extremely important. The higher your blood pressure, the higher your risk of health problems in the future. If your blood pressure is high, it means it is putting extra strain on your arteries and on your heart.
Taking your blood pressure regularly at home is a safe and very efficient way to take care of your health. You can easily prevent heart disease and stokes by keeping tracking of your readings.
My first reading was very normal. I took it in the morning, about one hour after breakfast. My results were: 116/75. That means I am in the normal range, and the only recommendation for me is a yearly check up.
From now on, I will use my Omron EVOLV regularly to monitor my blood pressure. I feel very confident about my readings because I know the quality and reputation of this little machine.
