Nishindra Kinjalk [2] | Tushar Kinjalk [2] | Aarushi Kinjalk [2] | Meghna Kinjalk [2]

Abstract: This article delves into the pivotal role of stress management in controlling hypertension, a global health concern affecting over 1.28 billion individuals according to recent WHO reports. The intricate relationship between chronic stress and hypertension development is explored, shedding light on the physiological mechanisms involving the sympathetic nervous system and the hypothalamic - pituitary - adrenal axis. The article examines stress management interventions, including relaxation techniques, mindfulness practices, and cognitive - behavioural therapy, which have exhibited promise in reducing stress levels and positively impacting hypertension control. Highlighting the barriers that stress poses to therapy compliance, dietary habits, and physical activities, the article underscores the importance of stress management in achieving optimal hypertension management. The article concludes by emphasizing the need to integrate evidence - based stress management programs into hypertension care, tailored to the unique needs of individuals, ultimately enhancing treatment adherence, emotional well - being, and overall health outcomes.
