An occasional check of your blood pressure is also helpful.

Absolutely! Both my great grandmother and grandmother died in their early 40's of massive strokes due to high blood pressure. My blood pressure started climbing up about 5 years ago. I ran out of medicine and called the doctor but it was the weekend and I could not get anyone to call in a prescription. I have a blood pressure monitor (cost $50)
and I started monitoring my own blood pressure and sure enough it went up day by day. I will never run out of medicine again!
