ASMR: A UAE Based Research to De Stress School Going Children


In the age of extreme competition, it has become difficult for the kids to focus on their studies and get attentive to learn. Stress has taken on the tender minds of school going children and has been rampantly spreading from a relatively younger ages. Various studies have shown that excessive pressure on the soft memories of younger students, from the age group of 10-18 yrs has been caused by the glaring competition and heavy study courses leading to mental and physical stress. In UAE, a recent study has shown that it is possible to systematically lower the stress levels in a child and facilitate them to completely calm their minds in order to have a more impactful study session later and have a better memory that absorbs information better and in an uncluttered way.

ASMR, Positive Synergies from Sound Working as Healing Agents for Stressed Brain-

The phenomenon called ASMR- Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, has been known to reduce the stress levels by shutting the mind activities for a while so as to help your mind refresh itself and get back to work after the experience of ASMR. It is a tingling sensation that is specifically triggered by an audio or video content. Dr. Franziska Apprich, assistant professor in the school of Communication and media studies at the Canadian university of Dubai (CUD) has conducted an extensive study on the positive effects of ASMR. She concludes that certain simple sounds can help alleviate stress caused by hectic brain activities and influx of information. Sounds like whispering sounds, sounds of running water, soft animal noises, the hush of folding towels, soft brushing, etc can help you release the pressure off your mind as this gives you mind a needed break and rejuvenates it to accept more information. The concept has been there around since ages but has now become an internet sensation also.

The innovative drive in the younger generation leads to a dominant critical thinking and that causes a sense of oppressive competition where students of younger ages succumb to mind numbing stress. ASMR has reportedly been a helpful method to cure neurological issues like depression, anxiety, sleeping and eating disorders. The professor also suggests the parents to help their children de-stress using ASMR and help them perform better and experience new sounds that work differently for every individual.

Parents Believing Stress to be a Little Helpful and Motivational-

However, parents have a different take on the stress in children caused by heavier education system. In an array of varying views, some parents believe that stress is lesser due to education but more due to peer pressure and internet taking front seat in their lives. Some apparently believe that they give their children their own space but children need to judiciously use their time. But most of the parents agree that stress and pressure has been an ailing factor in their children, it needs to limit but at the same, stress in regulated amounts is necessary for the children to learn and grow in strict environments, claiming that stress will also benefit them in learning various lessons in life.

Experts Have a Solution-

Teachers in UAE have suggested many ways that students should ideally follow to live a de-stressed mind and try to take pressure off their minds to keep calm and maintain a focused approach towards studies and life in general. Lighthouse Arabia Counseling Psychologist Ms. Ailing Prendergast suggests that students should maintain a work-rest balance during their studies and also must not take small failures to heart. Multi tasking is thought of as a good way to lead a professional life but Prendergast is against the motion and strongly advises all the students to follow one thing and subject at a time in order to prevent “fragmented thinking”. It is also suggested by her and even by many experts also that children must talk openly about their stresses and anxieties as communication is the best way to deal with every stress. Prendergast has a divisive plan that helps students make a mark in education and do it smartly, with SMART Goals, where SMART means Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely Goals. In this course a child is expected to make smaller, achievable and manageable goals. It’s a skill that we all should develop to lead a successful, content and stress free life.
