Simplicity

It is the freedom from artificial ornament, pretentious style, or luxury; plainness; as, simplicity of dress, of style, or of language; simplicity of diet; simplicity of life.

Simplicity can best be achieved by paring your life down to its essentials--those things, activities and relationships you either truly need or genuinely cherish. It involves unburdening your life, and living more lightly with fewer distractions that interfere with a high quality life, as defined uniquely by each individual.

Some of the simplicity values that are important to people who live simply are:

-Limiting material possessions to what is needed and/or cherished.

-Meaningful work, whether paid or volunteer

-Quality relationships with friends and family.

-Joyful and pleasurable leisure activities.

Living simply does not require adherence to a rigid set of rules, but rather it challenges the individual to live consciously and deliberately. Simplicity is not a destination. It is a life long journey that is not always easy, but ultimately deeply satisfying.
