The Power of Asmr

The Power of Asmr

Relaxation comes in different forms. One very particular form is termed ASMR and it stands for: Auto Sensory Meridian Response. This phenomena is characterized by a pleasurable tingling sensation in various areas. These include the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body.

Furthermore, these responses are auditory, tactile, olfactory, visual, or cognitive. The tingles they give you are utterly amazing and beneficial to the body.

You will find so many ASMRs that are helping people out on a daily basis – and helping them keep a smile on their faces.

People who report having ASMR have different forms of triggers enabling them in experiencing their personal peace and comfort of body, soul, and mind. Each person identifies with a different trigger. Some of these triggers include but are not limited to: typing, whispering, brushing hair, cleaning, etc. It is wonderful that small things like these can help someone achieve a sense of freedom from their anxiety.

A few regard this a hoax, claiming there is no “scientific evidence;” however, having experienced ASMR myself, I can vouch the fact that it aids in keeping you calm and loving yourself.

So… why is ASMR helpful?

1. Relaxation Technique

The first thing that comes to my mind is relaxation after a long, stressful, and strenuous day. Listening to the positive affirmations that some of the ASMR’s on YouTube say directed towards you gives you a feeling of being special as well as being “welcomed.”

If you hear “GentleWhispering” — her screen name, but real name is Maria — you will be transported to another world of calmness and peace that is truly magical. It makes you calm and feel special. Now who doesn’t want that?

Her videos have fetched over 87 million YouTube views. Though ASMR is controversial it is widely popular amongst people who find it appealing. For me, it is a relaxation technique that helps me sleep and forget about current problems. Maria says that she is not after money or fame, but ASMR was something that got her out of her depression and struggles. She truly is an inspiration for so many people.

2. A Different Style Of Meditation

There are so many different types of meditation. However, the term “meditation” is anything that relaxes the human soul. In a way, that comforts and calms the mind down at the same time. What is better than relaxing after a long day’s hard work? Absolutely nothing.

It isn’t any sort of yoga, but just gives you a sort of relief and reassurance that “You are beautiful. You are perfect. And you do not have to change. As you are perfect the way you are. People will love you for the way you are and not as someone they want to make or create.” This is why I specifically and specially like Maria’s videos.

3. Makes For A Harmonious Balance

The cool and calm style the ASMR’s display helps you get in touch with yourself as an individual. Why wouldn’t you want to get in touch with yourself? All days are never the same- some good and some bad. On the bad ones, ASMR can create a positivity inside you that radiates throughout the entire body.

The words the ASMR artists say is truly magical and uplifting. It makes you feel like a free spirit.

Quite contrary to belief, ASMR is joyful. It provides an escape from everyday problems and the words of wisdom are helpful to bring your mind back in a relaxed state.

4. Get To Discover A Variety Of Triggers

Because every person involves a different set of triggers, you get to discover what it is that truly triggers your senses to being you comfort and enjoy.

It truly is a magical experience in figuring out what it is that enables you to get peace and tranquility as these things are indispensable.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
