Let Your Motion Be Your Medicine

I have been keeping irregular hours of late and have had difficulty maintaining my prescribed schedule for taking blood pressure pills. When I slip up, the symptoms of a spike in blood pressure soon overtake me: headache, poor concentration, and a general feeling of being disconnected from the world, as if I were looking through the wrong end of a telescope.

Fortunately, I have found a reliable palliative: a brisk thirty minute walk. I can usually get a 25 point systolic drop from a constitutional around the nearby park.
