Hypnotension warns today that daily time pressures encourage high blood pressure.
The warning comes in the wake of a recent study suggesting that American adults who prepare their own meals and exercise on the same day are likely spending more time on one of those activities at the expense of the other.
The research showed that a ten minute increase in the time spent preparing food led to a ten minute reduction in exercise that day. The finding applied to single and married adults as well as parents and those who have no children.
On average, men spent 17 minutes on preparing food and 19 minutes on exercise and women spent 44 minutes on food and 9 minutes on exercising.
Researchers analyzed nationally available data on more than 112,000 American adults who had reported their activities for the previous 24 hours.
The average respondent, male or female, spent less than an hour on both exercise and food preparation on the same day and tended to trade time spent exercising for time spent preparing food.
Key lifestyle factors leading to high blood pressure include being overweight, eating too much salt and lack of exercise.
Paul Howard, co-creator of the Hypnotension programme, said “The problem is that time pressures often preclude people from exercising and preparing healthy meals. They either turn to pre-packaged meals and sauces that are high in sugar and fat or do less exercise just to fit in all the things they have to do on an average day.”
“Although the Hypnotension Programme teaches strategies to help people get the exercise they need without spending precious time in the gym, we urge hypertension sufferers to spend more time overall on activities which lower blood pressure naturally, such as healthy meals and exercise.”
“Time may be a precious resource for many, but what is more important than your health?”
The Hypnotension Programme is a one-to-one therapy delivered by a qualified hypnotherapist. They have the skills needed to help people make the behavioural, motivational and emotional changes needed to tackle the common high blood pressure causes.
The Hypnotension Practitioner looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure (Hypertension). These lifestyle factors are then targeted using specific cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help reduce the clients blood pressure towards more normal levels.
