ASMR – How To Wrap Your Mapiful
Welcome to this guided gift-wrapping ASMR experience!
Light some candles, put on your headphones, and let this video soothe your holiday stress.
What is ASMR?
ASMR stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response” – a relaxing, tingling sensation in the body created by different auditory and visual triggers. These triggers can range from soft whispers, soft tapping on different objects, calming hand movements, and even mouth or eating noises.
This satisfying sensation usually starts as a soft tingling at the back of your neck or scalp, and brings a sense of calm and relaxation to your soul and senses. Some find it makes them sleepy, and some find that it helps them cope with stress, anxiety and depression. It happens to both your body and mind, just like yoga or meditation, and helps us to slow down in a fast-paced and often overwhelming world.
ASMR creators use these triggers to create this feeling for their followers, and often film themselves completing cozy or relaxing tasks with softness, empathy and kindness.
Wrapping a gift is one such special task. The holidays can be stressful at the best of times, and this year is no exception. Let us help you decorate your home and wrap your gifts with soothing sounds of candles, tinsel, and ribbons. Losing yourself in this nostalgic craft for a few hours is the perfect way to unwind, give your mind a break, and get into the festive spirit.
Feeling sleepy yet? If you’re still awake, share this video with someone you care about. It might just be the five minute break they need!
