I just checked my blood pressure and it’s 124/80. It’s been 6 months since I last checked it, but it’s okay. How is yours? I ask this because in tough business times, most executives are so focused on solving the business issues that they put their core asset (themselves) second, third or even worse. Pressure, stress, travel and other extreme demands impact your cardiovascular system and one sign of this is your blood pressure. The consequences of high blood pressure can be pretty bad.
I just returned from a stroke clinic at Lake Constance, where I visited a friend who had a brain stroke. He had high blood pressure but didn’t pay attention. An artery in his brain ruptured. It’s a very sad story. He just turned 40, has 3 little kids and now has to learn how to swallow, speak, read and walk again. The problem with blood pressure is that you don’t feel it when it’s high, and often times don’t realize it’s high until it’s too late. So let me ask you again; What’s your blood pressure?
