Follow these Tips To Reduce White Coat Syndrome

Taking deep breaths before and after visiting the doctor:
It is a very easy method to get your blood pressure down, no matter what type of hypertension you have, temporary or permanent, as deep breathing makes you feel relax. To make it very effective, try to reduce the number of breaths you take, down to just six or seven lesser than this for 15 minutes a day, or may be twice a day, depending upon how much you can do.

Use aromatherapy:
Aromatherapy makes you feel relax under stress, though it is recommended to start the aromatherapy with lavender but it depends that which one makes you feel relax the most. This can be done only when you have experience with various scents. It is not something very difficult to use, just wear it like you do with perfume, or dabbing on the soles of your feet and on the pulse points will also do the job. Sometimes occasional sniffing of a tissue paper with aroma will be enough to make you relax and lower down the stress level.

Listening to calming music:
Several studies have shown that music has a strong effect on the person’s mood and calming music is known to reduce the tension and make the person relaxed. Moreover many tunes are especially composed to give a soothing effect to the mind, with unconscious phrases in them. But the same calming music can be lethal if you are driving a car.

Avoid coffee and other stressors:
Drinking coffee, smoking, getting into argument with someone, or doing any work that requires extreme care, all will increase your stress level and hence you blood pressure. So it is advised to avoid all of these stressors before visiting the doctor.

Using the bathroom:
The fact is that when the bladder of a person is full, he/she will be stressed and it is very logical and natural and hence it is compulsory to list that before visiting the doctor, use the bathroom.
