worried about my blood pressure.. too high?

hello. i am 27 year old male.. 5 11 170 lbs. i used to play soccer for many years but lately i have not been exercising. i think for about a year now if not more i have been averaging a blood pressure of 140/85.. sometimes i would wake up and it would be 130/75.. or so.. sometimes it would be 150/90 and i would measure it times after and it would go down. i had blood work done before and ecograph for my heart about a year ago and everything was normal. should I be worried with this blood pressure reading? what can i do to lower the blood pressure? any comments would be greatly appreciated!
