What can I do about my BP and I am skinny as it is?

My BP is 140/80, Pulse 80ish. I am skinny as hell, not obese. Hypertension runs in my family. I don't exercise as much as I should but I do try everyday. Anything else I could do?

    You are half way there. In your blood pressure- to be 120/80 would be much better. To get the 140 down to 120- do some cardiovascular exercises almost everyday. I like to swim and walk since it is easier for me. For you, pick some exercises you like. You are lucky to be skinny as hell. If you smoke or drink- give it up if you can.
