What is ASMR?
By definition, ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response is a “calming, pleasurable feeling often accompanied by a tingling sensation.” It typically happens when you hear certain types of sounds or participate in certain activities. In many cases, whispering, tapping against hard surfaces, chewing and lip smacking is known to trigger ASMR. The idea behind the phenomenon is to bring about relaxation and alleviate stress. It doesn’t work for everyone, but there is a large online community of ASMR content creators and a larger community of people who enjoy it. If you do a quick search on YouTube for ASMR, you’ll find a variety of videos ranging from whispering to eating to creating other sounds that will relax you.
ASMR YouTube star ASMR darling has ASMR videos to help you fall asleep. Her video called “10 Triggers to Help You Sleep” has more than 27 million views on YouTube.
