I am obsessed with my heart, Please help

Hi - a few months ago I was having heart palpitations due to anxiety and ever since I have become really obsessed with my heart (I guess I m stupid). When I get up in the morning I m always checking my pulse. What are my chances of having a heart attack one day? I think i m healthy, my BMI is 22 which also means I m not obese, I don t smoke or drink, I have a good diet including fruit every day, I have low blood pressure, I exercise moderately like twice a week and above all there is no family history of heart attacks. THANK YOU.

You seem to be a worry wart. I always check my heart rate and the lowest was 36 at sea level and usually about 50 at the high altitude that I live. The key to a strong steady heart is exercise with a good diet. Bananas are great heart food. The last time my blood pressure was checked it was 110/70.I am over seventy years old.
