Default slow heart beat

I was just wondering... My normal heart rate used to be 65, but these days its more like 58 or 60. I've tried finding the answer online but haven't found an explanation yet. Does anyone know what this could be?

I take atenolol for hypertension and it lowers my heart rate to about those levels.

Oh. I suppose its not necessarily a bad thing, as long as my slow heart rate is not for some serious reason or anything. I mentioned it to my doctor one time and she asked me if I have chest pain which I don't. I take natural sleeping pills every night, and sometimes in the day for anxiety. I wonder if that affects heart rate.
I worry so much about my health sometimes since being diagnosed. I feel like I've become a hypochondriac.

What about exercise? If you've started doing something with a cardio component your heart rate will go down to as low as 50 or so over time.
