After this year’s ice storm, many Texans took to the internet and shared their experiences. From shocking driving clips, to perfectly captured slips and falls, one of everyone’s favorite style of videos to come from all of the ice are the ASMR posts.
Something about crunching, cracking, and smashing sheets of ice just itches a certain part of our brains. Fortunately, those that decided to brave the cold ended up with plenty of satisfying videos and shared them on TikTok.
Let’s take a look at 10 satisfying Texas ice storm ASMR videos:
If you’ve ever wondered why people love ASMR so much, there is actually science behind it.
ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response, which is the relaxed and sometimes tingly feeling you get from hearing certain sounds. This can be triggered by anything from crunchy ice to whispering to chewing.
ASMR has been shown to help some people deal with stress, sleep better, and even help with chronic pain.
It gained popularity on YouTube and the term ASMR was coined in 2010. It quickly became a trend and has stuck around over the past several years. New types of ASMR have developed and everyone has their preferences.
While it is incredibly helpful and enjoyable for some people, not everyone likes it. Similar to a preference for what type of music, books, or movies you enjoy, you can be selective about your ASMR.
I personally love anything crunchy sounding, but tend to dislike chewing and whispering ASMR. Although, I know people that love any kind of ASMR, and some that can’t stand it in any way shape or form.
