In brief: Aerobic fitness

Elite fitness athletes such as track stars have so much vagal tone to the heart that rates 55/minute are common and even lower isn't unusual.
There's no other healthy way to reduce your heart rate, or any reason i can think of to want to do it. There is a great deal of misinformation out there. I'd urge you to find an aerobic-fitness sport you like and spend a lot of time at it. Enjoy yourself.
