I build a new income stream every three months, and this is the latest in a huge portfolio of income sources.

Right now, I’m building a $10,000-a-month side income from ASMR.

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. It’s a tingling sensation that some people experience in their scalp, neck, and other parts of the body in response to certain stimuli.

This sensation is often accompanied by a feeling of relaxation and calmness.

ASMR is typically triggered by soft, gentle sounds or movements, such as whispering, tapping, or brushing. People who experience ASMR often describe it as a pleasant, tingling sensation that starts in the scalp and spreads down the neck and spine.

ASMR videos have become increasingly popular on YouTube and other social media platforms. These videos typically feature a person whispering, tapping, or making other gentle sounds while performing a particular activity, such as folding laundry or applying makeup.

While the scientific community has yet to fully understand ASMR, some studies suggest that it may have therapeutic benefits. For example, one study found that watching ASMR videos can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Overall, ASMR is a unique and interesting phenomenon that has captured the attention of many people around the world.

People who create ASMR video or audio content are called ASMR-tists. My favorite type of ASMR to watch on YouTube is keyboard typing sounds.

Here’s an example:
