Your heart rate is a measure of how many times your heart beats in a minute. For most people, a healthy resting heart rate is between 50 and 90 beats per minute (bpm), but this number can vary depending on factors such as medication and fitness level.
Many people are familiar with how fast their hearts beat when they exercise, through the use of common monitoring devices. But how much do you know about your resting heart rate? This important number is one of the simplest ways to monitor your heart health. It can even help with stress management.
