Heart rate should go up during exercise. Then test yourself to how long it takes to get back to normal range (100-60). You may lack physical fitness and/or your system is adjusting to emotional stimuli. Rest assured your HR is not always at 88. I find my HR to be about 64 in the morning before any activity. Then it ranges around 88 but can vary minute to minute.
