The ASMR Daily 13
Bom Dia! Tudo Bem?
For as long as I can remember, I have desired to learn a second language. At 27 years of age, it is safe to say that I speak English with exuberance, but also, I only speak English. The desire to communicate in foreign tongues is not ephemeral! I promise! If you want to learn a second language, there is no better time to start than right now! [because that want isn’t going away!]
That being said, I am all about setting achievable goals! For the purposes of achievability, I suggest starting your journey of learning a new language by listening to some ASMR videos in languages other than your native tongue. Figure out what language you like the sound of, and expand your imagination! because learning a new language is about embracing a culture, not just it’s language. No sense in learning Portuguese if you’ve always wanted to travel to Japan! Then again, Japanese might be a hard language to learn on your own using free videos online [We’re all about free knowledge here @asmrdotcommunity].
Nothing is impossible, but if you are quarantined with someone from Brazil, might as well learn a little Portuguese! [That’s what I thought lol and I really am trying to learn a little bit of Portuguese, and so I am quite happy to have found Maya ASMR]
In the above video, Maya ASMR says a few trigger works in English, and then Portuguese, and then Brazilian Portuguese. I worry [for the purposes of learning] how different the language is between Brazil and Portugal.
Some of the words she says are “Pickle,” “Bubble,” and “Scratch.”
Oh my! And as I am writing this, I am listening to the video. The Portuguese word for Scratch is…sounding difficult to spell lol. AND THEN THE BRAZILIAN VERSION IS A LOT DIFFERENT! I highly suggest watching the video above if you want to relax, but especially if you want to learn a little bit about the Portuguese language.
Have a safe and Happy Monday!

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

For more daily support, check out Sober James on YouTube. He does a livestream every night at 21:00 Eastern Standard Time, and his live streams are a great place to receive support, gain motivation, and listen to encouragement in regard to addiction recovery. His program is based on the Twelve Steps.
SMART Recovery is another great program for individuals who are ready to tackle their addictions.
If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
