Poor mood can also lead to high blood pressure

I am a white-collar worker. In recent months, the company has adjusted personnel personnel, making me unable to sleep at night, eating unwillingness, and worrying all day. These days, I was in a headache. I was accompanied by my colleagues and went to the hospital to check my body. I did not expect to find my own systolic blood pressure of 150 mm Hg and a diastolic blood pressure of 95 mm Hg. I am neither obese nor smoking, alcohol, and other bad habits, and there is no family history of hypertension. Why do I get high blood pressure?
