Wow! This is a very interesting article. I've been moving this direction for the past couple of years, and according to this list I'm doing a great job. I still have more paring down to do, and we have really slowed our spending, collecting, and we really think about a purchase and how it fits in to our lives, not just another accessory, gadget, something else to take up space. We are really simplifying, growing our own food, concentrating on good stewardship, etc. The top I have not been successful at, is the work category. I haven't figured this out yet, as it would take a major change career change for this to happen, but also the biggest stressor for me. It would mean getting away from behind the desk, which is great, but away from all of my skills, etc. It's on my mind more and more though. I do have to say, my simpler life is really nice and peaceful, spiritual too.
