Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR)
We all respond to our environment. Sometimes it stresses us out and sometimes it relaxes us. Stressful environments tend to be very loud and abrupt. Relaxing environments tend to be soft and often slower. ASMR encourages relaxation by incorporating sounds that have a tendency to help a person relax.
ASMR is often used by people to relieve stress, anxiety, pain and weariness. It offers many people comfort and helps them to focus when studying.
Practitioners and viewers often speak about tingles. Some people experience tingles and some people don’t. Tingles are when a person hears a sound or experiences empathy from seeing something and then they feel a tingle somewhere in their head and/or along their spine – this feeling can make a person happy or relaxed.
Some people have an aversion to ASMR, but this is usually when they don’t understand it or they don’t want to understand it. Also, one person might like whispering but not tapping sound, while another person like tapping sound and not crinkle sounds. You have to find what works for you.
So here, I am offering a couple of videos that include ASMR triggers. You can find the rest of them on my YouTube Channel here:
