For the uninitiated: ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is a physical sensation characterised by a pleasurable tingling that typically begins in the head and scalp. It is commonly triggered by soft or accented voices, personal attention, ambient sounds or watching people work silently, among others. If any video makes you feel relaxed, it is probably eliciting ASMR. ASMR can be intentional (A video deliberately made to elicit ASMR) or unintentional (A video that wasn’t made for relaxation purpose, but actually does that). Now, people have different experiences with this phenomenon and may prefer intentional or unintentional. But personally, I find Unintentional ASMR to be more relaxing than its intentional counterpart.
Here are some Unintentional ASMR videos that will help you relax and put you to a good night’s sleep.
