Are these normal BP and heart rates?

Hi, After a long and tiring day of work, I had my blood pressure checked at 126-72 with a heart rate of 82. I am a 59.5 yo white male living in the US. I read everything and its opposite on the Internet on this bp level. Is this a normal blood pressure? Should I aim to improve it and how?

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is an entirely normal Blood pressure. You do not need to do anything for it at present. You may check it once or twice later.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
