"STRESS" - Emotional stress and anxiety can temporarily increase blood pressure. Over time, excess stress can take a toll on your cardiovascular system and might lead to permanent blood pressure problem.

Hi Anant! Adding on to What Pritika said,leading a sedentary lifestyle can be another cause. If one is overweight, not working out regularly, eating more high fat, high sugar or high sodium foods, taking excess caffeine, alcohol, smoking, not resting properly & having a family history of hypertension their chances of developing high BP increases. Usually if your BP levels are over 140/90 for a consecutively long period that can be considered a starting point.
