Living Minimalist - Simple Living
Living Minimalist: Here at Minimalismus.ch we are not talking about the minimalism in the context of art, music and architecture, but the simple living lifestyle. Objective: less property, less consumption, quality of life, more freedom, a more conscious self, more time and money. Wikipedia defines it that way:
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. Although asceticism generally promotes living simply and refraining from luxury and indulgence, not all proponents of simple living are ascetics. Simple living is distinct from those living in forced poverty, as it is a voluntary lifestyle choice.
