This month’s simple living interview is Keith from I Like Helping. The monthly interviews are designed to give you a glimpse into people’s lives who call themselves minimalists, or are pursuing a simple lifestyle or living slow.
Each month the bloggers are asked the same questions in order to see the similarities and differences in their experiences. It’s a wonderful way to be encouraged in simplifying our own lives! You can read the other interviews HERE.
Can you introduce yourself to my readers Keith?
- Action figures
- Pop culture merchandise
- and so much more.
What initially attracted you to simple living?
I have always pursued my passions – learning, writing, supporting those who create art. I’m one of those folks who had already been living a lot of slow living ideas before knowing it was out of step with the world around me. A friend gifted me Tom Hodgkinson’s book “How to Be Idle: A Loafer’s Manifesto” and it was a light bulb moment.
What are the benefits that you have found in simple living?
Is your wife also a minimalist?
