Nothing Wrong With Being A Little Different -ASMR

We all have different tools we use to help us relax. Some of us run, practice yoga, meditate, read, cook… the list goes on. In the last few months, a new form of relaxation has become a favorite of mine. It is a little different and may not work for everyone. It is ASMR.

ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. Generally, this response is a tingling feeling that starts in the head and may move through out the body. It is caused by “triggers”. Triggers can be visual or auditory. Everyone has different triggers. I prefer whispering or clicking noises. Others may prefer role plays or listening to someone eating. ASMR does not work for everyone. The only way to know is try.

Here are links to some of my favorite artists:

The best way to view these videos is while using ear buds. I find these videos helpful when it is time to fall asleep or if I am stressed in general. Just wanted to share in case ASMR could be helpful for anyone else. Cheers!

  1. ASMR! That’s what it was! I heard about this a few months ago, but forgot what it was called. Thanks for reminding me! I don’t get the full tingles people talk about, but it is rather relaxing. Cheers!


  2. I agree about using earphones. I just bought a flat speaker online tonight that is suppose to slide inside my pillow, I’m hoping that will be even better than headphones. I’m a little doubtful. Have you tried “sleepphones”? I like them the best so far.
