ASMR YouTubers and ASMR as a whole, the newest online trend, are growing in popularity, especially those YouTubers whose content is based around helping you to fall asleep, to feel less anxious, and to relieve stress.
ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response, is an experience that can some people feel tingles down their body, or otherwise just helps you calm down and breathe. While some avoid ASMR and find it cringeworthy, others swear by it for relaxation and anxiety relief.
