stress is the major reason for hypertension.150/100mmhg value confirm that your hypertensive patient.need not worry consult near by general physician and start your medication for hypertension.and compulsory half an hour walking daily.
diet:avoid more intake of salts and fatty foods.
eat 2 to 3 garlic on daily basis which wil help in maintaining your pressure.
If you drink alcohol, drink in moderation. The recommended suggestions are 1 drink per day for women, and 2 per day for men.
include fresh fruits rich in potassium,magnesium and calcium.
eat fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids which will not only maintain your pressure bt also prevent cardiac problems.
good luck.

Anesthesiologist Dr. Abhijeet's  Response
the blood pressure you have mentioned is pretty high for your age esp the diastolic one. high pressure puts you at the risk of myocardial infarction, left ventricular failure, stroke and what not. see in the long run this type of bp if persists will eventually lead to failure of almost all organ syatem including your kidney. stress is not the only cause of this high bp as it usually doesnt lead to increase in diastolic bp you need to consult a cardiologist and start anti hypertensive drugs drugs ASAP. and keep your fitness regimen running.
