First, know what you’re reading. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury, the top number is your systolic blood pressure and the bottom number is the pressure in your arteries when your heart is at rest. A healthy blood pressure reading is less than 120/80, so you’re not in danger of hypertension. If your reading is between 120/80 and 129/89, you may have pre-hypertension. The American Heart Association considers any reading between these two numbers to be within the normal range.

The bottom number of your blood pressure is actually your diastolic blood pressure. When the heart relaxes between beats, it lowers blood pressure, lowering it to its lowest level. Typically, blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg).
