I agree, the importance and significance of excercise, movement, relaxation techniques and chaneling concentration and energy levels tends to be overlooked.
I attend a doctor supervised cardic gymnastic session every week. We measure our BP before commencing and recently, I have started to measure mine after the workout as well. On Thursday for example, my pre was 131/89 and post 109/56 however, before going to bed it was 174/89 and all I'd been doing during this time was reading a book. Over the past few weeks I have noticed the drop in BP after excercise which I find significant but wonder why it cannot be sustained?
During a cardiac rehab a few years ago, I painted a silk scarf. This was a first for me as I am definately not talented in this direction. During the painting session, I was wearing a 24 h BP monitor and I was amazed at the reduction in BP and pulse during this time.
Perhaps this could be a multidisciplinary study?
