I swear I haven't gone mad (yet), but if you are interested in or use ASMR content as an educator, this blog is for you.
Teachers are always on the look out for ways to relax and wind down. Running works for me, when I can get out. A few years ago, I stumbled upon a video on YouTube which was apparently teaching me Russian. In actual fact, it was one of the best known “ASMR videos” on YouTube. It worked! Meaning, it relaxed me and (remarkably) made my brain switch off. The BBC have written about ASMR and some have became unlikely "stars" of the genre. I’ve been regularly recognising so called “unintentional ASMR” content since 2015. This is content that people have produced for no ASMR related purpose but stuff that “works” in the same way. Listening on headphones works best, and switching off all other distractions. I would love to hear any feedback on this and whether I am, in fact, bonkers!
