For the past while, especially this year, I’ve been more proactive in triggering ASMR events. I keep a personal library of sound and video clips that in the past triggered it for me.
Other times I watch the TV or listen to the radio, to particular shows. Sometimes I get lucky and other times it’s just not happening as much. No… I’m talking about something else. Get that image out of your head, please!
But just lately I haven’t really been listening to the radio much, or watching those specific TV segments, like infomercials, as often.
But the other evening I lay down and put on my earphones, and listened to the radio for half an hour. After not having experienced any tingling for days, for nearly the entire time, I had one of the most intense sessions I’ve had in a long while.
This led me to think that maybe, like a lot of things, ASMR in moderation isn’t such a bad idea. Perhaps after a break, when I finally do experience, it’s more intense. I also found that I was less particular or picky about what actually triggered an occurrence for me. Voices on the radio and TV that wouldn’t usually set it off started to do just that.
I should really get back into the habit of triggering it. Since I wrote this it’s been another few days. I just haven’t been sticking to my usual routine. I think it’s because I’ve been sick for a while (again), and tired too.
