ASMR HAIR BRUSHING AND WHISPERING


ASMR can help you sleep. It's a stimulus that helps you relax, unwind and fall asleep. This stimulus is called a "trigger". There are lots of different triggers. One person might sigh as they walk into the house to the scent of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Another person might close their eyes and unwind while listening to the rolling sounds of the ocean waves. Still, some people like some oddly satisfying sounds like hair brushing or cutting. To each their own. 

I recently learned of this phenomenon and thought I would do my part to help people find some peace and relaxation during a difficult time in the world. 

I'm hoping you'll enjoy this video and that it will help you get the sleep we all need to function at our best. But, even if you aren't interested in ASMR, you might enjoy watching me style this triple braid hair. I know I'm always looking for new hair styles - especially at the holidays.

And, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The holidays can be a stressful time for a lot of people, but ASMR can help you relax and get the sleep you need to enjoy the day. So why not try listening to some oddly satisfying sounds?

DIY BINAURAL MICROPHONE TUTORIAL


If you're wondering what ASMR is - it's a new health trend that allows people an easy way to unwind and get the rest they need, without the use of medication, meditation or even alcohol. And, of course, you can simply google it to find a ton of information but essentially it is a sensory response in the body to certain stimuli that helps a person relax and fall asleep

One of the main sources of this stimuli (which is called "triggers") for this response in a person, is sound. So, if you're wanting to become an ASMRtist and you want to make videos on YouTube that will help people relax and calm down so they can get to sleep, you'll need a good microphone. Unfortunately, these binaural microphones can be super expensive - the ones I found ranged from $400 to $9,000. 

And, since I only began making ASMR videos on Halloween for some friends who were having trouble sleeping, I don't have that much money to spend on a new microphone.

So, I thought I'd share a video showing you how my son built me my own binaural microphone for about $100.00 so I could use it in my new ASMR videos. 

If you're interested in how-to build a binaural mic, simply click on the video below this text. And, if you're interested in getting a short taste of what ASMR is, simply click on the video and look at the description box to see the timecodes so you can get a quick peek at just what ASMR is - especially with a binaural microphone. Just be aware that this was my first trial test at using my new binaural mic. So, I'm still learning to adjust the sound to be suitable for a relaxing ASMR video. 

Also, in the YouTube description box, you will find a list of materials needed to Build-Your-Own Binaural Mic.

Holiday Hair - It's a Good Time to Try Something New



The holidays can be stressful even for the most organized of Santa's helpers. 

With presents to buy, cards to write, cookies to bake, cakes to make, packages to mail and so much more to get done before the big day rolls around that we can all feel a little -- or maybe a lot -- pressured to achieve more than we can possibly get done. These year-end expectations can get us wound up too tight to unwind when the clock chimes bedtime. 

So, if you're too tired to even get to sleep, why not try something new to help you relax? 

This new thing I'm talking about is ASMR

And ASMR is simply some oddly satisfying sounds that help release a sensory response in your brain that will help you relax and destress so you can sleep. And we all know sleep is important to your health and well-being. So instead of grabbing a glass of wine or taking a sleeping pill, why not try this free method? It really might help you destress and decompress so you can detach yourself from the tension that's keeping you from sleeping.

If you're open to trying something new, simply click on the video below:

Holiday Stress - Here's Help

 


With these soothing sounds, you can close your eyes and listen to the oddly satisfying sounds of hair brushing and hair play to help you unwind and relax so you can get a good night of sleep so you can wake up refreshed and ready to go. 


If you don't know what ASMR is, let me explain:

It's an autonomous sensory meridian response ("ASMR"). This is a sensory response that causes tingles to run down your back, neck and upper spine. It can be created by different stimuli, such as a smell, sight or sound (known as "triggers"). These triggers are specific to individuals. One person can get tingles from the aroma of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, another person can be stimulated by the sight of ocean waves and some people get the tingles from sounds of . . . hair brushing. This ASMR can cause a relaxing sensation that helps you calm down and has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. If you're interested in reading more, check out this link.
