good read

kinfolk 16

This week, I learned about ‘slow living’, ‘essentialism’, and ‘downshifting’ and how these lifestyles differ from ‘minimalism’.  I found a good read from Kinfolk (the slow living magazine out of Oregon) in an article about essentialism and how its focus is more on individuality through an emphasis on curation, not just downsizing.  I love reading about variations on how to simplify our lives.  It is reassuring and grounding.  I’m finding it very important to remind myself of why simplicity makes sense by writing and reading about it.  We need reminders because the world around us constantly tells us to endlessly buy and work more.

  1. This is really interesting…I’ve been thinking a lot about slowing down and living more simply recently but to me it was just a feeling I felt very strongly about that there must be more to life than working to buy, I didn’t realise it had a name. I’m going to go and research simple and slow living now. Thank you!
