I dunno what the ASMR stuff is precisely, but everyone has little triggers.. Things that relax or calm them. My understanding is its thought to be womb-related. Literally some base-seeded memories or preferences from our inception into conscious thought and processing. Like, I cant speak for ASMR vids, talking softly, or crunching or anything, but like a lot of people, the sound of rain/running/fall water is calming to me and I sleep to the sound of rain, using my Ipad or phone.. but one thing I do - and I feel a little weird admitting this, but what the hell - that drives my GF (and others) crazy, is I will sleep in the bathroom. Well, take naps.. and not in the tub. I have a bad back and Im used to sleeping on the floor when its acting up or starting to, and its never bothered me to lay on the floor. Grew up sleeping mostly on the floor. So, sometimes I'll go in the bathroom with a candle because I dont want to overhead lights on if Im trying to nap, but with no light its pitch-ass black in there.. Light the candle, turn the shower on (we dont pay water bill here its part of rent, but other places Ive lived where I do.. well.. ugh) and lay down on the floor. Use a towel as a pillow and some blanket I brought with me, and I conk the fuck out for an hour or two. Its a small space that's intensely protected and private and the sound of the water from the shower is obviously really loud. Now, all that said, if I have access to enough hot water, I just sleep in the tub. I turn the shower on and direct it away from my face, get it as hot as I can stand it, and just plop down in the tub and conk out. I prefer this to the method above, but I have to have effectively limitless hot water, so I dont get to do this much. My old apartment used a shared boiler system so I did have unlimited hot water. I miss that. I didnt pay water bill there either. Anyway, just throwing this out as a point in the ASMR vid discussion. You never know what people like, and I gave up trying to make sense of it a long time ago, I cant make sense of my own preferences, let alone anyone elses lol.
