What are the influencing factors of blood pressure?

My Professor asked on the first day of my semester "What are the influencing factors of blood pressure?" I only know a few and there are more. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe:

  1. Stress
  2. Smoking
  3. Alcohol
  4. Obesity
  5. Haemorrhage
  6. Heart disease
  7. High body temperature

Can someone help me please?

mean arterial pressure (bp) = cardiac output multiplied by total peripheral resistance

factors that influence cardiac output or vascular resistance will influence bp.

cardiac output... heart rate as in the equation b
