BMR calculates life sustaining function, respiration, heart beat, etc. So yeah, that's just lying in the bed doing nothing.

Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him and He will do this

So my BMR is 1275 according to that web calculator. That is if I laid in bed all day and did nothing? Or is that just normal light activity?
