A 22-year-old female asked:

My heart rates mostly around 60-80 bpm , but often it goes down to as low as 48 - mostly at rest and after sleeping but sometimes even after a cup of coffee - im 22 and eat healthy but rarely exercise (just yoga, never cardio) - is this normal/ok?

Heart rate 48: May be normal or your heart rate monitor is not accurate. Check by feeling pulse at wrist. Count for 60 sec exactly.
