Your blood pressure is a little high. Normal systolic blood pressure is between 90 and 139, and diastolic blood pressure is between 60 and 89. You should monitor your blood pressure regularly. Also, you can improve your lifestyle to adjust your blood pressure by eating a low-salt diet, stopping smoking and restricting alcohol, and exercising moderately.

If the blood pressure is still high, you should use some antihypertensive drugs which should be administered under the direction of a cardiologist, such as Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, Angiotensin receptor blocker, β-Blocker, Dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, Thiazide diuretic.
