We are addicted to ASMR, seriously.
No, it is not a drug. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, which translates to some of the best tingles ever, honestly, orgasmic.
These tingles occur as a response to sensory stimuli– for example, having someone whisper in your ear, light scratching, or tapping.
You know that epically relaxed feeling you get when getting your haircut or a massage? Well, imagine being able to get that calm, tingling happiness whenever you want– you can!
There are links all over YouTube that role play everything from suit fittings to facial massages. While a video may not be as good as the real thing, these videos are still incredible at reducing stress and totally rock if you are having a rough day meditating–you get the relaxing benefits but get to follow some kind of story if your brain just won’t shut off.
Here’s a link to get you started with one of our favorites. We’re huge fans of GentleWhispering, she’s simply divine and we kind of have a huge girl crush — maybe it’s from all those tingles…
(P.S. for the best experience, we totally recommend headphones. Many of these fabulous YouTube peeps use HD recording devices, so you can hear all of the sounds in each independent earbud, making the experience more realistic. You’re welcome.)
