What Your Resting Heart Rate Can Tell You About Your Health

Your resting heart rate (RHR) is a number you may not ever think about, or at least no very often. However, it’s one of the most important numbers you should know in relation to your health. Not only can your resting heart rate be used to track your fitness level and target your workouts, but it can also alert you to an assortment of potential health risks. Therefore, getting to know your RHR—and what’s normal for you—it can help be more informed about your health.

My wife always says that a woman needs her beauty sleep. There’s a lot of truth in that. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The way you feel while you're awake depends in part on what happens while you're sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health.
