17 TRIGGERS IN ONE HOUR || [ASMR] VIDEO




Yeah, on the surface ASMR videos are totally weird. Whispering, caressing pages of a book, sweeping makeup brushes against a microphone, slow hand movements as if they were stroking your face; all that plus more. If you don't understand what ASMR is or the feeling it brings, these kind of videos will just seem very awkward and creepy. If that happens to be the case I highly recommend that you read my latest post on the topic, ASMR & Brain Orgasms : Why people love it, first then come back here with an open mind.

It’s completely okay if you don't enjoy ASMR triggering videos, it's expected as it’s only a small minority who have ASMR. For those who don't get it or are just coming across it now, don't be quick to judge. The videos may seem weird, strange and unusual to you, but that might just be the thing that helped someone else overcome a serious panic attack or helped them to get five hours of sleep when they would usually struggle getting two.

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY 2018


It's World Mental Health Day. The day where we focus on what's going on in our heads and try to raise as much awareness of illnesses such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar - much like what we should be doing every day anyways.

According to the Office for National Statistics, people living in Scotland are happier than those living in other parts of the UK. Apparently we are "the most satisfied". Nonetheless, that does not mean that we can't feel low or struggle with mental health. In fact, mental illness is one of the major health challenges in Scotland.

ASMR & BRAIN ORGASMS : WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT



Alerts, notifications, pings - the sounds that send an anxious shiver through our body. But what if there was a way using technology, in which we could find it relaxing, and even comforting? 

I’m not a big fan of physical contact. I don't like when someone sits next to me on the bus, making me feel suffocated and closed in against the window; I don't like how close the dentist has to get to my face when he’s pulling at the corners of my mouth to get a better look at my teeth; I can’t stand it when someone is sitting next to me on the sofa and their shoulder or arm is against mine; I even feel a frisson when someone touches something belonging to me. With that said, I do like a good hug now and then, usually at the end of the night after spending some time with friends or with a family member. Other than that, it all seems a bit ‘up close and personal’ for me to be comfortable with. Yet recently, I discover a new form of intimacy that I’m kind of here for.

DEAR DEMI


Dear Demi,

I was around 13 and in my third year of high school. I didn't have a lot of friends I could really count on, which caused me to become my own worst critic, analysing my external appearance day after day and acquiring very unhealthy habits. I always kept these self critical thoughts private. Keeping the battle I was fighting entirely in my own head.

WHAT GLEE TAUGHT ME - 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY


Because this is a no judgment zone, today I’m celebrating nine years since Glee first aired on TV!
Although the show didn't start broadcasting weekly until September, four months earlier on May 19th 2009 the Pilot was aired giving us a first look at the all singing, all dancing, often cheesy show.
