One of the most debated topics about high school is the stress that it brings to students. Whether the stress is coming from a difficult class, overwhelment of daily activities, or feeling lost, high school students are always trying to find a way to eliminate tension. Some students turn to unhealthy ways to eliminate stress, but through a new scientific research psychological benefits from ASMR can be a healthy way to eliminate stress.

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. ASMR is described as an experience that causes sensation to specific sights and sounds. Starting from the head down, “brain tingles”, are accompanied by feelings of calm and relaxation.

Through the presence of Youtube I learned about “Brain Tingles”. Over 13 million videos about ASMR are present on Youtube. Videos from actual medical examiners inducing ASMR, or home remedies that have worked for people trying ASMR.

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response sensations can even come from responses to such as whispering, tapping, and slow hand movement. These responses come from different triggers in our brains. These triggers may even bring benefits for both mental and physical health, according  to a new research.

From ASMR you can experience a decrease in heart rate, increases in positive feelings including relaxation, and feelings of social connection.

Through watching videos on ASMR it has gave me tips to helping unrely stress. The hot topic of ASMR is promoted by celebrities. Of the videos celebrity Cardi B exploring ASMR with W Magazine, had to be my favorite. If interested you can search ASMR videos on Youtube, it could be worth your while.
