The example I can think of why to monitor Resting Heart Rate as soon as you wake up is to let you know if your body still needs more rest.
You normally have a RHR around 30 bpm (just picking a number) and after waking up one morning it's mid 40's.
Your body is telling you it needs more rest or possibly is getting sick from a flu/cold bug.
