Wikipedia : Simple Living

Simple living encompasses a number of different voluntary practices to simplify one's lifestyle.
  • These may include reducing one's possessions, generally referred to as Minimalism, or increasing self-sufficiency, for example.
  • Simple living may be characterized by individuals being satisfied with what they have rather than want.[1][2]
  • Although asceticism generally promotes living simply and refraining from luxury and indulgence, not all proponents of simple living are ascetics.[3]
  • Simple living is distinct from those living in forced poverty, as it is a voluntary lifestyle choice.
