KonMari your phone: 5 types of photos to keep in your gallery

Have you heard of KonMari? In case you haven’t, this process of tidying has been a huge hit since the start of 2019, thanks to Tidying Up with Mari Kondo on Netflix! KonMari is known as the empowering act of only keeping what makes you happy or what “sparks joy” in your life. That would explain the influx of “spark joy” memes on your Facebook feed.

Decluttering, undoubtedly would include our personal photographs, which is quite unsurprising. Photographs, for the longest time, have been known to hold a lot of sentimentalities, and with the evolution of camera-centric smartphones in recent years, it’s been apparent that your albums have been flooded with all kinds of photos, and deleting has been difficult. So what about using the KonMari Method in cleaning up your gallery? Here’s what we suggest: Ask yourself “Does this spark joy?”, if not, then hit that delete button already!

From our end, there are only 5 types of photos that deserve that extra space in your phone:

1. Irresistibly cute things

Make it a practice to take and keep photos of things that make you happy, whether it’s your pets or even your favorite item at home. These will give the extra boost you need to get through those horrid Manic Mondays in the office!

2. Snaps of adventure!

Don’t be afraid to go on adventures this year. Explore and experience life to the fullest and also remember to catch every moment possible. Somewhere down the road, you will look back at the memories and be reminded of the instances that you felt truly alive.

PRO TIP: Taking photos of any view will be easier with a ZenFone that has Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) because it can focus swiftly at whatever situation.

3. Moments of Zen (or those that remind you of it)

Of course, where there is a photo of high adrenaline, there is a photo of serenity. Keep photos of the calm sea, the clear skies, or even the peaceful city nightscape. These do not only ease your eyes and mind, but these also serve as a reminder to keep yourself grounded in Zen when the going gets tough.

4. ‘Wefie’ with people close to your heart

Whip out your trusty ZenFone, put it on selfie camera, and grab all the special people in your life for one amazing wefie. These people are your “persons” and they have your back no matter what. You can also return all the support they’ve given you by keeping a photo to remember by.

PRO TIP: It helps to use the softlight LED flash; especially when using the selfie cam for wefies. It gives everyone the chance to look amazing!

5. Selfies (because why not?)
