There have been so many testimonies from those who experience ASMR about how ASMR helps in promoting their sleep. The tingling sensation that is experienced whenever you're exposed to ASMR triggers is what induces sleep in people. The possibility of this fact is the reason why those who are battling with insomnia spend so much time watching videos that can trigger the feeling in them. The tingling sensation starts from your head and to the back of your neck, and gradually moves to other parts of the body in some cases.
ASMR brings about a positive feeling which makes you feel relaxed whenever you're exposed to its triggers. In most cases, it helps you get rid of depression and anxiety; as a result, you start feeling sleepy. ASMR videos are on YouTube. A perfect example of what you might see in those videos is someone who is trying to creating a quiet sound just by flipping through the pages of a newspaper.
