Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Normal blood pressure ratio is 120/80. It looks like your pressure are on higher side..So please measure your pressure regularly for period of 3 days in a relax mood..In the mean time start on salt restricted diet and regular exercise. Even after this if your blood pressure is on higher range than u need to start on antihypertensive medications.
hope this helps.
take care..
