16 Top ASMR sounds by country
What’s giving you the feel-good bedtime tingles? If you haven’t discovered ASMR yet and struggle to fall asleep at times (or all the time), there’s a chance that your life might change forever after reading this article.
ASMR has grown in popularity over the last few years and for a good reason. It helps many people reduce stress and unwind before bed, making it easier to fall and stay asleep. If you have a hard time drifting off into dreamland at night, perhaps it’s time to give ASMR a try.
What is ASMR?
ASMR is an acronym for autonomous sensory meridian response or auto sensory meridian response. It’s a tingling sensation that starts on your scalp and then travels down your neck and spine. It’s a type of paresthesia, which is a strange sensation of the skin that is not caused by something physical.
Common ASMR sounds include eating, whispering, tapping, cooking, scratching, crunching objects or playing music. You can just listen to ASMR or watch ASMR videos at night to help you relax and unwind.
Why does ASMR make me feel good?
The tingling sensation that is triggered by ASMR has a relaxing effect on body and mind. Not everyone experiences this tingling feeling when listening to ASMR, but if you do, it can help you relax and fall asleep easier at night.
Listening to ASMR can cause your oxytocin levels to increase, which will make you feel more calm and comfortable. It could potentially also increase your dopamine levels, further adding to the feel-good effect.
