Look, adulting is hard. There’s the bills, the responsibilities, the exercising and making sure you’re eating properly because sometimes you can just glance at food and gain the weight. There’s also the aches and pains which sometimes take you by surprise—one minute you’re at a day party giving your best 99 to the 2000 twerk to “Back That Thang Up” and then next thing you know, you can’t get out of bed for like two days :x
But what also comes with adulthood is making better choices when it comes to your health. And never before have I seen topics like self-care be so dominant on social media–in fact, I’m partnered today with the American Heart Association during National High Blood Pressure education month to talk about my own experience with high blood pressure in hopes of inspiring many of you to have yours checked. Nearly half of all U.S. adults have high blood pressure. That’s nearly 103 MILLION people!
