I’m a YouTube addict. I’m constantly playing videos, weather I’m watching hauls, listening to music, studying a tutorial or reviewing my own content. Because of my many years of YouTube content intake, I’ve stumbled upon some really pleasant and relaxing videos. The ones I’d like to share today are either videos or channels I stop by if I’m ever feeling stressed or down.
First up, I want to mention this video from the channel Maqaroon on YouTube.
Joanna, the channel’s creator, is a DIY and crafting genius, and her tutorials are very calming to watch.
Some of my favorites of hers are her needle felting videos. While I am not affected by ASMR, many people comment on these particular videos that the noise needle felting makes gives it that effect. I actually followed this specific tutorial to make these felt kitties myself from a kit I bought off of Etsy.com!
Joanna has made dozens of videos besides needling felting, some of which include putting together miniature dollhouses, slime making, paper clay crafting, how to make plushies out of fuzzy socks, handmade accessories, and more.
Up next is the channel In Love With A Ghost.
The beautiful art on this channel is just a plus to the lovely music. “i make music, record feelings and tell stories. i started as a pianist then experimented with computer stuff and now i mix both,” is how the creator describes what they do.
The best way I could describe this music is gentle lo-fi mixed in with recordings of pleasant noises ranging from ones that sound like gumballs being dispensed from a machine, to a drink being poured, or to birds chirping outside. For me, it gives off a feeling of a warm summer afternoon.
They actually just released an album titled “healing” (which I find pretty appropriately named) and contains most of my favorite songs from the channel. I definitely recommend giving these tunes a listen to promote those positive vibes! You can head on over to In Love With A Ghost’s YouTube or purchase the “healing” album here.
Ever seen grav3yardgirl’s videos? With a following as large as hers (over 8 million subscribers!!!) and years worth of content, if wouldn’t surprise me if you’re already a fan of hers.
From unboxing videos, to makeup tutorials, to my favorite, her oh-so-popular “Does This Thing Really Work?” series in which she tests out popular As Seen On TV products, “grav3yardgirl” aka Bunny, has a plethora of options to watch your stresses away.
I have to say my favorite thing about Bunny’s channel is her own personality. While I love her video content, for me, it’s her quirky sense of style, hyper mannerisms and loud personality that make her so fun to watch. She’s plain entertaining, and when I need a distraction from life’s problems, I know that I can stop by her channel for a smile.
While the “Does This Thing Really Work?” series is my favorite over all, I actually really got into watching her squishy hauls and reviews for a while. She was actual a big part of why I got into squishies too! (Want to know more about “squishies” and how they help with de-stressing? I actually plan on making a post all about them in the future, so stay tuned!)
Have you ever heard of these channels before? If not, maybe check them out and let me know what you think? Or perhaps you have some videos and recommendations for me! I’m always on the prowl for new content! Be sure to leave a comment to let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
