It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon and you just want to stay at home and chill on the Internet. You start browsing YouTube’s recommended videos until one catches your eye. You open it and see a girl whispering and tapping on basically random objects. At first it’s quite unsettling, but the more you watch, the more you feel relaxed and peaceful.
What is it? Why does it make you feel so good?
What you have just experienced is called ASMR and it’s more common than you think.
ASMR is extremely pleasurable and really offers several benefits as well. I 100% benefit from ASMR by it allowing me to relax and sleep due to my insomnia. Others may benefit from ASMR by it helping reduce stress, reduce headaches or even allowing you to meditate.
