Living simply when you still love things

Kathy Krugercontentment, gratitude, yoga8 Comments

When you take the yoga path, it should be one of simplicity, spirituality, and humanity, right?

Well, mostly right. I do favor serenity and nature over shiny things. I prefer to donate rather than spend lavishly. I seek to connect rather than compare, to experience rather than accumulate, to enjoy instead of consume, to love people not possessions.

Spiritual trumps material most of the time (I have a soft spot for interior design but mostly just lust after things in magazines, sigh). I look inward to contemplate (and, sadly, still compare) more than I look outward to compete (“…but she has really nice shoes, and check out those yoga pants!”).

    Not logged in over there, but I love your tips – AND the flexibility. I’m trying to live simply but there are a few things which really nourish / nurture me. Some less than ideal (TV and my online world) and others not quite so bad (reading, baths). I’ve tried – hopefully successfully – to focus my materialism around those areas. I want to make sure my ‘desk / office’ space is desirable; same with my TV-watching space for eg.
