Is anyone else feeling anxious and struggling to sleep at night? This is completely normal with everything happening in the world right now. ASMR is something I’ve enjoyed for a long time but I have been leaning on it more than ever. If this is new to you but you’re interested in giving it a try I’m sharing my top 5 ASMR artists that you can find on Youtube right now.
What is ASMR?
It is described as ” a feeling of well-being combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck, as experienced by some people in response to a specific gentle stimulus, often a particular sound”. There are a variety of different types of ASMR including: role play, whispering, soft-spoken, different sounds like paper tearing, eating, tapping etc, personal attention and so much more. Not every type of ASMR works for everyone so you need to find one that you enjoy!
1. Gibi ASMR
Even though Gibi has been around less than 4 years she is one of the most popular ASMR artists out there. She has a wide variety of videos including role play, sounds, personal attention, etc. If you are a newbie I would highly recommend her!
2. Gentle Whispering ASMR
This was the very first ASMR video that I ever listened to so naturally I had to include this lady! She is definitely one of the OG ASMR artists out there and is one I continually go back to. Her role-play and personal attention videos are some of my favorite. I hope you enjoy her content as much as I do.
3. Latte ASMR
Latte doesn’t post as often as the other artist but you will soon see why. Her production value is off the charts! Most of the videos you will see are created by green screens. However, Latte prides herself on creating her backdrop from scratch and its incredible to see. All her videos are role play pretty sure she has had more jobs than Barbie by now!
You will probably notice if you look up ASMR on Youtube that it is predominately women that come up. However, Dmitri has become very popular over the last few years. He shares massage videos which I have never seen before and is very intriguing. I found him and love him for his no-talking videos the one I have linked is a 10-hour video if you can believe it. Which is excellent for you to put on your headphones and fall asleep to.
5. SophieMichelle ASMR
Sophie Michelle is my most recent find and I’m bummed I haven’t been watching her for longer. Like Gibi she offered a variety of ASMR types of videos. I love her for her personal attention videos but you can see her sound trigger ones do VERY well.
This is honestly the tip of the iceberg in regards to different ASMR artists. I hope these will help relax you and send you off to sleep during these stressful times.
