Soaking your feet in hot water for 10-15 minutes will keep your head and neck cool and stop blood from rushing to the brain, as blood will move from your head toward your feet, slowly normalizing your blood pressure.

Rest in savasana aka corpse pose for 10-15 minutes to help your blood pressure normalize and also balance your nervous system. Lie on your back, fully relaxed, eyes closed.

Sometimes dehydration can be a cause of high blood pressure. So, to prevent it, drink 1 or 2 glasses of pure water every time you feel hypertension.

Listening to calming classical, Indian, or Celtic music, especially combined with meditation can help decrease the level of your blood pressure. This kind of music has a soothing effect and reduces the stress hormone, cortisol.

Hissing bee breathing or bhramari pranayama is a technique that will help you relax your mind and get rid of the headaches caused by hypertension.

Sit down on the floor in a comfortable position. Straighten your back, place your both index fingers on the cartilage of your ears. Take a deep breath in and then, as you exhale, make a humming sound while putting mild pressure on your ear cartilage.

Repeat it 7-10 times.

 

Acupressure

One of the most effective acupressure points is GB 20 aka the Wind Pool. They are located at the base of your skull, in the depression on both sides of your spine. Simultaneously apply a steady, but mild, pressure on them with your thumbs and you’ll feel much better in about 2 minutes.
