5 ASMR Videos That Will Help You Sleep Like A Baby

Do you ever have trouble falling asleep? Are you ever anxious and tense? Do you find it hard to concentrate on homework?

Kimberly Michelle Photography

If you have never heard of ASMR, you are not alone, but you are definitely missing out. I stumbled upon this glorious gold mine of videos on complete accident during one of my plights into the black hole of YouTube. At first, I passed these hidden gems by because I did not understand why anyone would want to watch another person play with q-tips or spray a water bottle for hours. After a few days of seeing these videos in my suggestion sidebar, I gave in and watched one. It was glorious. I then had to google what exactly ASMR was, because it seemed like some sort or incredible witchcraft. ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. I know--I know, that probably does not help explain at all. I still don't even quite understand fully myself. All I know is that these videos can help relax you into a deep and peaceful sleep, calm you after having a tense day or even an anxiety attack, and aid in your concentration while attempting to do work or homework. It sounds like magic, right? It is. The best way that I can describe it, and excuse my French, but it is like a brain orgasm. Your head starts to tingle, your shoulders begin to relax, and the rest is history. Below are my personal top five favorite ASMR videos to watch when I need a fix, but keep in mind that there is a never-ending plethora of these on the internet you can find with just click of a few buttons. My only recommendation is that you listen with headphones. It intensifies the experience.

5. MassageASMR This guy is a little on the weird side if you actually watch the video (rather than laying the video to the side and just enjoying the sounds with your eyes closed) but it is a great place to start if you are a newbie. This video is 10 hours long, so he does a wide variety of ASMR triggers. This is how you can figure out what works for you and what does not.

4. Made In France ASMR I am honestly not sure why this is so pleasurable to listen to, considering the whole nails on a chalkboard being cringe-worthy thing, but it is so nice. This video gives me chills. Side-note--I am a big fan of all the ASMR videos this specific YouTube makes, so feel free to browse the rest of his channel.

3. fastASMR After hearing the spray bottle noise on a different video, I knew I wanted to find a video dedicated solely to that. I watched a lot before finding this beauty. It makes my brain melt in the most fantastic way.

2. EarthlyASMR I have a few videos very similar to this one in my personal ASMR video playlist, but this one is definitely my favorite. She was not kidding when she titled this video intense. This makes my head feel all the tingles, and I love tingles.

1. AmbientASMR This video made it to numero uno on my list for a reason. There are just no words that can describe how amazing this video is. It literally makes it feel like you are the one getting your head washed and massaged. I will admit that I am guilty of listening to this on repeat at night, and it helps me fall asleep almost instantly, and keep me asleep all night long.

I honestly do not know what I would do without the wizardry of ASMR videos now that I have had the pleasure of becoming obsessed with them. You can even ask my family - I go into panic mode if I can't find my headphones to listen during homework or before bed. I just hope that you all enjoy as much as I have. (Pro-tip: if you add these videos, along with any other ASMR videos you like, into your own playlist on youtube, you can make it to where they play on repeat throughout long bouts of homework or sleep at night.)

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
