The Heart Rate is the number which tells you how many times per minute your heart beats. Because there are so many things that can impact your heart rate it changes constantly throughout the day depending on what you’re doing. If you’re exercising your heart rate will increase whereas if you are relaxing your heart will be lower and this is called your resting heart rate.

It’s fascinating to uncover just what it can do and how it works to keep us alive.
