    Ray nice share once again. This topic is even better and important read for me. Good to know some effective ways to control stress and that stress controlling music therapy video is awesome.

    I have high blood pressure and I have a stressful life. As good an article as this one is, I find others that contradict some of the points. Common sense though leads me to believe my current higher than normal BP is linked to the stress. I am old enough to retire, so I think I am going to. No sense pushing the envelop when I do not have to.

    Interesting post. I’d downloaded a number of meditation music files but I did not have this one. Very nice. I originally started listening to relaxation music when I was driving long distances for business. Found some cds in a service station and needed something to listen to. That was probably 15 years ago. I have been using music as a tool to relax me ever since.

    I can agree with the correlation here. That is part of the reason that I started to do yoga. Better for my mind, body and soul!

    I lead a stressful life, not question about it. Kids and grand kids having financial troubles and me on a fixed income unable to help, plus a sick wife and a glum outlook for the country judging by the line up of POTUS wannabees. My blood pressure spikes when I’m stressed but returns to normal if I relax and can tune the world out. Are these spikes normal or should I be worrying about developing a long term, high BP health issue?

    • 31 January 2016 at 7:32 AM

      Sounds to me to be normal. On the other hand I’m not a Physician and don’t pretend to be. Since problems with High Blood Pressure have the potential to be very serious I suggest you consult with your Dr. just to be safe.

    My BP was climbing for years and finally reached the level where I had to go on medication. I did, but decided at the same time I had to attempt to bring it down naturally. I packed it in and moved to Nicaragua where I can live comfortably for a week on what my bare necessity expenses were back in North America. Stress level diminished, blood pressure is declining. I am not retired but I can work an hour or so a day and pay the bills, so work is not the demanding, stressful enviornment it once was.

    I have always thought stress was a greater risk factor than coffee. I’m a coffee addict and always people are harping at me that, ‘at my age’, coffee is going to kill me. Usually I am being scolded by someone morbidly obese who’s smoking a cigarette and drinking a scotch. I never smoked, nor do I drink much alcohol. Anyway, I have outlived many younger friends and family members, and all were stressed out worriers. Some would worry about not having something to worry about. I’m going to share a link to this post with my surviving friend and family I think.

    I agree 100% with your article. I just wish I knew how, in this stress filled, modern age, I am going to void my life of stress. Maybe go live in a monastery where I have to take a vow of silence, or maybe a cave far from other people. At times either seems like it would be an idyllic life.

  • 22 January 2016 at 8:23 PM

    Great article. I have high BP and recently had a mild stroke. I seem to have recovered completely but it was a wake up call for sure. I have dropped weight, exercise and avoid stressful situations like the plague. Doctor’s orders. Taking early retirement.
