A voice of happy little trees

Google “ASMR”, and you will find many videos of people whispering, tapping, and making other soft sounds. These videos are designed to trigger a pleasant tingling sensation on the scalp and back of the neck known as Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. ASMR is a popular way to relax and de-stress.

Something I discovered years ago is that the voice of painter Bob Ross similarly relaxes and destresses. His soft and calming voice, combined with the visuals of painting, has a similar effect as ASMR videos. Taking time to watch his Joy of Painting can be an effective way to reduce stress and relax. And, just maybe, get you to paint a canvas or two.
