Not enough people look at their resting heart rate!

Resting heart rate, is the number of times your heart beats per minute when you are at rest — such as when you are relaxed, sitting or lying down. Usually, a lower resting heart rate means your heart is working more efficiently and is more fit. For example, an athlete might have a resting heart rate of around 40 beats a minute. Lifestyle changes that may help lower resting heart rate are -Getting regular exercise. -Regularly practicing relaxation techniques, such as yoga and meditation -Losing excess weight -Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol use -Excessive caffeine intake also increases resting heart rate While 60 is considered healthy, healthy resting heart rate changes with age and differs by gender! So check out the charts!
