Last year when the Facebook Group was just two months in to its existence, an event was held online that was named Hug Your Brain Day. This took place on the 24th of April, 2010.
I didn’t attend it seeing as even though I’d heard of the Facebook Group at that time, I hadn’t yet joined.
So I thought, why not keep it alive and make it an annual ASMR-related holiday? You don’t actually have to go anywhere, physically. Wherever you are, you just take some time to relax and stimulate your sensillations – and you have to do it as long as possible, as many times as possible, throughout the day. It’s a Sunday this year, mercifully, so some of us might find it easier to do it on the day of rest.
And you can also talk about your experiences in doing this with the rest of the group online if you want – on the Facebook wall, or on the forums, or even on Twitter.
Watch your favourite trigger videos, listen to chill-inducing music, listen to the radio, or go through your own collection or personal triggers (like I will!), and just let go. Relax, and let those wonderful tingles just caress your entire body. Do this as much as possible for the entire day.
Just enjoy it. And if you all ready do this every day anyway… then do it anyway!
