What is ASMR?
Much like a head massage without someone physically touching your head, ASMR is a response to specific ‘triggers’. ASMR stands for an autonomous sensory meridian response, which essentially describes the tingling, soothing or even calming sensation that can be experienced when listening to or watching certain stimuli, i.e. someone scrunching a piece of paper or eating an apple.
ASMR doesn't happen for everyone and in every instance, but for some, it can cause a very pleasant and relaxing sensation that can be beneficial if you’re stressed or anxious.
