ASMR signifies the subjective experience of “Low-grade euphoria” characterized by “A combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin”. It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control. A genre of videos intended to induce ASMR has emerged, over 15 million of which had been published on YouTube by 2021.
I generally laugh out loud when I go from a hot shower to a cold shower. It is thought to be god for you so, that thought remains with me…

SUBSCRIBE to help our unintentional ASMR collection grow http://bit.ly/UASMR and hit that 🔔. We’ve always been fascinated with science related videos as they really make great for accidental ASMR gold. What’s even more appealing is a science video voiced with a very soft spoken British accent! Luckily, we’ve come across this unintentional ASMR video as suggested by one of our followers, Lee. This relaxing explanatory video features British Professor, Russell Stannard, as he talks about the mind, space, and all things science. Full credit goes to Professor Russell Stannard and The Open University, and its online learning platform, OpenLearn.

In this compilation of science learning videos, we removed the music at the start of each video, as well as a few times where Professor Stannard’s voice is raised for certain words to ensure that you only hear his gentle voiced moments. We also tidied up the audio by editing out a few sections where there were some loud moments, as well as non-relaxing parts, to specifically edited to maximize the relaxing ASMR effect of this video while you sleep. Hope you like the changes! Please let us know what you did/did not like in the comments below.
