It is optimal to measure blood pressure within 1 hour after you get up in the morning & before you go to bed at night.

If you measure your blood pressure in the morning, take the measurement within 1 hour after you get up; before having breakfast & after visiting the restroom, rest for 1-2 minutes & then take the measurement in a sitting position.
If you measure your blood pressure at night, after resting for 1-2 minutes, take the measurement in a sitting position before you go to bed.

It is recommended to take the measurement at the same time period every day.
