High blood pressure check: do you recognise these symptoms?

One in three people has high blood pressure and therefore a greater risk of cardiovascular disease. But often they don’t know. Do the test and find out if you have an increased risk.

  1. Do you suffer from chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, visible veins in the neck or impaired vision?
  2. Do you suffer from dizziness, nausea, sudden nosebleeds, fatigue or frequent headaches?
  3. Do you smoke, eat a lot of salt, sleep badly, exercise little or are you under a lot of stress?
  4. Are you 40 years of age or older?

Did you answer yes to one or more questions? You may have high blood pressure. We recommend that you check your blood pressure with a blood pressure monitor. Or contact your GP.

Drinking water: discover the mental and physical benefits

Do you drink enough water each day? Water is important for both your mental and physical health. Do you know that…

…you have less chance of migraines if you drink at least 1.5 l of water per day? Headaches can be caused by a lack of brain fluid due to consuming too little water.

…water makes you feel full so that you have fewer cravings and consume fewer calories? So drink some water before eating if you want to lose weight. But make sure that you also consume enough nutrients. This way, you will lose weight healthily.

…your productivity at work can increase by 14% when you drink 6-8 glasses of water a day?

But take care: consuming too much water in a short period of time is not good for your kidneys. They can get overworked and become unable to expel the fluid, risking kidney damage.

Walking: the ideal step towards positive change

No matter whether you work in the office or at home, go for a 30-minute walk outside (at a set time) every day. Why?

  • You burn approx. 150 kcal on a 30-minute walk.
  • Walking stimulates the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin. This has a positive influence on our mood. So go for a morning walk and enjoy the benefits for the rest of the day.
  • Walking reduces the risk of varicose veins.
  • Walking makes you more productive and creative: your cognitive brain regains space. Are you in need of new ideas or creative solutions? Take your colleagues for a brainstorming session outdoors.

Lacking motivation? Find a walking buddy or go for a stroll with a colleague during your lunch break. A sociable way to keep each other motivated!
