The importance of a healthy lifestyle is well understood for the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Numerous studies have emphasised the importance of lifestyle changes as an integral component of lowering blood pressure in both patients with hypertension and prehypertension. Non-pharmacological interventions are an integral part of preventing and managing not only hypertension but also in reducing cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. The importance of physical activity, exercise training, and a healthy diet need to be reemphasised as powerful primary and secondary preventive tools. Therefore, physicians and other healthcare practitioners must allow time with patients to discuss patient goals related to non-pharmacological/lifestyle modifications.
