Can food TV be relaxing? Is the watching and listening to a dish being created a relaxing and nurturing experience? There is an online community that believes just that. They strive to create relaxing videos, showcasing the creation of salads, main dishes and decadent cakes, to cultivate that wondrous tingly feeling. Wait, what tingly feeling?
Ever watched a cooking show and found yourself becoming entranced by the sounds and movements of the host? Have you ever experienced “head tingles” as you watched the cook’s movements and listened to their careful instructions? You are not alone. Millions of people, around the world, experience this tingly relaxing feeling called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response or ASMR.
This sensation primarily reported as a tingling in the head, neck and back, can continue down the arms and legs. Activities such as watching someone cook or draw are common triggers as well as listening to a whispered or soft spoken voice.
Not all people experience ASMR, but for the lucky ones who do it is a fantastic feeling. Many use the ASMR videos posted on YouTube nightly to relax and prepare for sleep.
Whisper Mister1, aka Fred, is a popular ASMR artist who has published several ASMR cooking and tea tasting videos. His latest is a decadent chocolate cake recipe which he demonstrates with finesse. Fred's soothing British accent and soft spoken voice makes this recipe a delight for the ears, as well as a treat for the tongue.
Simple, exact instructions and careful movements, make this video a relaxing experience, as well as an informative tool for creating this luscious dessert. All the ingredients are listed and Fred carefully explains and showcases each step. Relaxation and cake, what could be better?
Enjoy, relax, and immerse in the ASMR experience.
