ASMR is short for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. The best way to describe this is, it's a feeling - a tingly feeling! It usually starts at the head before spreading throughout the rest of the body, and is triggered by visual and/or sound simulation.
I know I've featured ASMR videos in a post before, but it wasn't until recently that I've noticed their potential to be used as an aid for relaxation. I do admit I'm a big fan of ASMR vid's, and it wasn't until I realised I watched them after long stress filled days which made me see their great stress reducing qualities.
There are many different types of ASMR simulation, and I've added a selection below so you can find the right one for you:
Fairy Char is one of the first ASMR videos I ever saw, back when I didn't really know what ASMR was, I'd read an online article about it, typed it into YouTube and found Char. I love her videos, there's a vast selection to choose from because she's had an established channel for years. And she has this whimsical style which just puts you at ease when watching!
Olivia has her own approach to ASMR, which are always very inventive and spiritual. She has this awesome accent too, which for me when she whispers make her words more prominent. She also does these great sand cutting vid's, which are almost hypnotic!
Erin is a bit of newbie to the ASMR scene, so not as many videos to watch just yet on her channel, but she's found her own niche as she's created a fantasy series to encompass her ASMR. So while you relax you can get lost in the make-believe world of Babblebrook too! Love her Show & Tell vid's as well!
Do you like Tea? Art? Fashion? - Then ALB is the one for you. With her unique style, warm personality and regular uploads, this lady knows ASMR is more than just making a few sounds, it's about putting on a show, and she does just that in many of her videos. Plus some great candy and memorabilia hauls, which you get to view from unboxing to trying on/tasting!
Well I hope you liked your intro to ASMR. Enjoy the videos guys and happy tingles!
