Yes I can. I generally use a breathing technique that helps slow my heart down.
I have no idea! I do know that if I can find a place of serious concentration and really go into myself, I can stop labour from hurting and just feel it as a strong sensation, but I never tried it with blood pressure. I've never had to coz my bp is stupidly low at the best of times.
I have tried this but never with any success. However, my father can and does do it, so I know it's possible!
Only with very deep prayer & time, I find I can lower my heart rate.
Not sure if the blood pressure would be up....mine is always low to start with.
It would take maybe 10mins.....Could not do it on the spot,quickly.

Yes. I find that if I do some deep breathing or a relaxation exercise I can lower my heart rate (and blood pressure as a result?).

I have never tried this before. This can probably be done on a short term basis. Naturally once you are still your heart will have less work to. To achieve long term success one would have to implement proper dieting measures.
I have never tried, but possibly could by relaxing and breathing deeply
