Hypertensive patients should maintain a smooth state smoothly

A smooth state smoothly is important.

Patients with hypertension and hyperlipidemia generally have the following psychological characteristics:

First, anxiety and restlessness.

Patients with hypertension often experience dizziness, headaches, and general discomfort due to elevated blood pressure. As the disease progresses and some patients do not see significant improvement after taking medication, they may become anxious and worried, leading to central regulatory dysfunction and further increase in blood pressure.

Second, fear.

Patients with hypertension and hyperlipidemia, due to being in a restless and anxious state all day long with no improvement in their condition, feel extremely fearful; they worry about experiencing cerebrovascular accidents or paralysis. Mental tension and fear can increase the excitability of the sympathetic nervous system, accelerate heart rate, enhance myocardial contractility, leading to elevated blood pressure, forming a vicious cycle that seriously affects the recovery of the condition. These causative factors are difficult to treat with medication alone. It is necessary to implement targeted psychological care based on the patient’s psychological characteristics, starting from improving their psychological resilience, establishing self-care patterns, avoiding unfavorable factors, maintaining stable blood pressure and lipid levels, and preventing serious consequences.

Specific regulatory methods are as follows:

First, appropriately release anger (A smooth state smoothly).

In life, people often encounter things that make them angry. Some people are good at finding appropriate ways to release their anger to their family and friends in suitable situations, easing the pressure in their hearts. However, some people often suppress their anger deep in their hearts without releasing it. This suppressed anger, due to not being vented, constantly has a negative impact on blood pressure. Patients with hypertension often experience blood pressure fluctuations due to unstable emotions.

Second, alleviate anger:

One of the personality traits of hypertensive patients is that when they encounter unpleasant things, especially unfair situations, they are prone to sudden anger, feeling indignant and causing rapid increases in blood pressure. Therefore, irritability is an important psychological root cause of hypertension and a significant reason for the limited effectiveness of long-term treatment for hypertension. Hypertensive patients need to realize clearly that no matter how good the medication or medical measures are, it is very difficult to achieve significant medical effects without changing their tendency to be irritable or even lose their temper when facing challenges.

Third, learn to use emergency measures to alleviate excessive stimulation:

Hypertensive patients are prone to significant fluctuations in blood pressure and even accidents under sudden environmental stimuli. Therefore, hypertensive patients need to learn to take appropriate emergency measures when unexpected events occur. Each hypertensive patient’s living environment and personality traits vary greatly, so emergency measures cannot be completely consistent. Below are several methods to alleviate excessive stimulation for reference.

When you’re really mad, just remember this: “Stay cool for a bit, things will settle down; Take a step back, see the bigger picture.” It’s a great way to calm down and avoid unnecessary fights. If you feel an argument coming on, open your mouth and swish your tongue from right to left nine times – it really helps to cool off. Many of us have been there, thinking, “If only I had kept my cool, things wouldn’t have escalated so much and ruined my mood for days; If only I had held my tongue, I wouldn’t have hurt someone’s feelings or caused a rift; If only I hadn’t blown up, things wouldn’t have gone south.”

It’s all about that split-second decision between patience and anger, with vastly different consequences. By stopping an argument in its tracks with a simple tongue twirl, you can save yourself a lot of regret. This method is super effective and can’t be replaced by money or pills. It’s not just good for folks with high blood pressure – it works for everyone, helping us avoid regrets from unnecessary arguments.

Fourth, change cognitive assessment:

Hypertensive patients are often meticulous in their actions, strict in their demands on themselves and others, and tend to be fault-finding and even nitpicky. Due to the characteristics of cognitive assessment in hypertensive patients, things that may not be enough to provoke anger in the eyes of others can also make them angry. In the same living environment, due to the characteristics of their cognitive assessment, they get angrier and stay angry longer than others.

Hypertensive patients need to change their negative cognitive assessment in order to adapt to society, adapt to real life, and adapt to new cognitive assessments of local customs and practices to deal with things happening around them. This will greatly reduce the stimuli of angry events, significantly reduce the time spent being angry, reduce sulking and idle anger, and thereby greatly benefit the prevention and treatment of hypertension.

Some sports, such as jogging, can help hypertensive patients feel happy. However, it is important to prepare well before exercising and avoid overloading. Frequent travel is also a way to improve one’s mood, such as at Disneyland.
