I have chronic insomnia. It’s all fun and late night reading until you really need to sleep and the sweating and wild racing thoughts begin. Lately, I’ve found great refuge in ASMR videos on Youtube. Oh, I don’t watch them (that’s hardly going to help me sleep), but they’re great to listen to as I fall asleep.
There’s a staggering array of choices. I personally find clicking and tapping sounds relaxing, but that’s just a tiny subset of what’s available. I have my favorites among: FastASMR, a German woman who does videos in English, German, and Spanish is really creative and experimental. So is MassageASMR, an Australian man who does a lot of long videos with no talking.
Our industry can be quite stressful: give these a try. Pop in some earphones, settle in, and relax.
