    17 Things Anyone Who's Slightly Addicted To ASMR Will Know

    ASMR & chill, anyone?

    1. You find yourself constantly trying to explain to your friends what ASMR is.

    If anyone actually listened to you, they'd realise that ASMR is amazing.

    2. And most of the time you're just trying to convince everyone that it's really, really, relaxing, and not AT ALL sexual.

    I mean, there probably are some ASMR videos that are sexual, but you get the point.

    3. You definitely have your favourite triggers.

    Tapping, mouth sounds, scratching — you know what you love.

    4. And you probably have your favourite videos that you watch over and over again...

    If it's not broken, why fix it, eh?

    5. ...But there are probably a few that you've never seen the end of, no matter how much you want to.

    They're so relaxing you fall asleep within minutes, it's so bittersweet.

    6. Speaking of which, drifting off to ASMR is the ultimate key to getting a relaxing nights sleep.

    As soon as your hear that whisper or tap, you know you'll be having sweet dreams.

    7. But you might have the slight worry that someone in your house will see your screen whilst you're asleep, and be very confused.

    You've got to admit, sometimes it does look a bit questionable.

    8. YouTube adverts are literally the ~worst~ things ever.

    Honestly, there should be a rule that bans those shouty ads on ASMR videos. It totally gets you out of the zone.

    9. And it's probably crossed your mind that if someone were to shout in a video you're watching, it'd probably ruin your hearing forever.

    There's a big element of trust when it comes to ASMR.

    10. You've developed an excellent sense of hearing when it comes to random household objects.

    You can tell when your mum's scrubbing a colander with a scourer from the next room, and you have ASMR to thank for that.

    11. And it's pretty fun when there's unintentional ASMR in your everyday life.

    Whether it's the sound of someone writing, or a keyboard being tapped at, unintentional ASMR is always good.

    12. There's no doubt that your Instagram Explore page is filled with slime videos.

    ASMR is everywhere!

    It probably won't be an intense life-changing, tingly, out-of-body experience causing video, but you know you're going to watch it anyway.

    15. It's really exciting when one of your favourite ASMRtists becomes a meme.

    Because it gives you hope that others will become ASMR lovers.

    16. But nothing is better than discovering that one of your friends is also into ASMR.

    Sharing your favourite ASMRtists is so much fun!

    17. And finally, the tingles are the best thing ever.
