20 thoughts on “[Voices of ASMR] Does ASMR help with focusing or ADD?”
as a young bloke with mild ADHD. when i have a bit of an average week at work. I find just sitting down when i get home and listening to ASMR helps a lot in calming me down and lowering my stress levels. i find after 10 minuets i become much less frantic for a lack of a better word. i seem to be able to just let my mind go and slow down Psychically and mentally. i would like to see some research on how ASMR effects the ADHD brain. i think it could be very helpful tool.
When I listen to ASMR, I’m kind of apathetic. My brain slows down (whereas it usually runs wild), I don’t think as much as I use to, so I become pretty unproductive. I can only do tasks that require a few attention, like drawing, surfing the internet at a really slow pace or watching the mountains through my windows.
However, I have non official attention disorders and I have to admit that, right after listening to ASMR, I keep this slow functioning of my brain, therefore I am not so distracted by anything else around me and if I can’t follow a conversation, it’s not because I think too much but because I feel relaxed. I accidentally break way less things because I’m way more calm.

Mostly, it helps me focus on sleep or relaxing my mind. Not really with other tasks.
Even though I use ASMR for sleep, I also listen to it while I am working on the computer. My ASMR is mostly visual, so when I am working, I like to bring up audio-only videos on YouTube (which don’t usually make me sleepy).
Yes, for me ASMR does. I discovered this by listening to ASMR at work and realized it made my day go by faster and less stressful. I’m able to focus on my work with the background “white noise”. Yes, me favorite ASMR artists are Whispers Red, Deluca ASMR, ASMRRequests, Tony Bamboni, GentleWhispering, MassageASMR, Fairy Char ASMR, Heather Feather, ASMR Massage PsycheTruth. I have not been diagnoses with ADD, ADHD or other condition.
