What is ASMR and how it affects your sleep

WHAT YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT ASMR

 Are you among those who know what ASMR is and who enjoy the well known tingling sensation when listening to some videos or audios?

 ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response.This feeling can be triggered by very simple things. For example someone whispering, tapping the surface of a table or brushing hair.

ASMR is becoming more and more popular over the years. More than 10 millions ASMR Youtube videos exist right now and millions are those who are experiencing this deep relaxing feeling.​

 

HOW CAN ASMR HELP YOU SLEEP?

Most people enjoy ASMR because it help them relax after a harsh day at work. Others use it to sleep better at night. Actually most people report feeling sleepy after having experienced ASMR as scientific studies suggest.

When watching an ASMR video for example, ASMR starts with a tingling sensation in the neck, the back or scalp and then goes all over the body. Sometimes people in the ASMR community refer to ASMR as "eargasm" or "braingasm". The body becomes so deeply relaxed that it is much easier to fall asleep.

Today how ASMR helps someone to sleep is not fully understood.  Some report that ASMR is very similar to synesthesia - a condition characterized by the excitation of one sensory modality by stimuli that, under normal circumstances,  only stimulates another, as when the hearing of a specific sound produces the visualization of a particular color, a type of synesthesia called Chromesthesia. ASMR and Synesthesia are genetic traits.
