Why we love watching Oddly Satisfying videos

We’ve all caught ourselves spending an inconsiderable amount of time watching random videos on Instagram that we landed on by accident. And when we realise what we’ve been watching all the time- we watch a few more.

Those videos of slime being mixed with glitter or sand cakes being cut into even slices, are all part of the video trend called Oddly Satisfying. And these videos really are oddly satisfying and weirdly super relaxing!

Although it may feel like a big time-consumer when you realise how long you have been watching oddly satisfying videos – they actually have positive mental health benefits. They don’t demand any thinking and only require us to watch with our fullest attention in the present moment, so in a way the videos are a way of practicing mindfulness. Check out this article to learn more of the de-stressing effects these videos have.

These are some of our favourite Instagram channels to follow for a dose of super relaxing weirdness.
