Normal & abnormal: The heart rate tries to match your activities so it slows during rest or sleep and speeds up in response to changing metabolic needs when you arise, work out, run, etc. It also goes up by ~ 10 bpm for any rise in body temperature. (metabolic demand) Bad things like illness or glands out of whack can also do it.
