LIFE simple ~
One of the different ways to simplify the life is to get back to the land and grow your own food (though I do not follow this because of environmental reason), as increased self-sufficiency reduces dependence on money and the economy. It refers to the undertaking of necessary tasks oneself and not having others, who are more skilled or experienced, completes them for you. Indirectly self-reliance is as a remedy against exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth. One should respect for qualitative values rather than just quantitative values.
