Some young people are applying the Marie Kondo method to their personal relationships as a form of “emotional decluttering.”

Sep 23 2021

Some young people are applying the Marie Kondo method to their personal relationships as a form of “emotional decluttering.” YPulse’s State of Mind trend research explores the effect that COVID-19 has had on Gen Z and Millennials’ mental state, with 43% of Gen Z and Millennials saying their relationships with friends/family have been negatively impacted by the pandemic. Now, some influencers are sparking conversations about emotional minimalism, a.k.a. the idea of depositing emotional energy into fewer, more fulfilling relationships as opposed to having a large social circle. YouTuber Kelly Stamps (who often talks about her minimalist lifestyle on her channel) notes how she has started cutting back on relationships that make her “feel alone”: “I had about 20 people around me that I would call my friends…When you have that many people around you, you’re bound to develop insecure friendships.” Others are taking a holistic approach to minimalist living by applying it to their physical lives, opting for less material items like clothing, technology, and home furnishings.
