Annie Raser Rowland on frugal hedonism and living more creatively with less
_“Frugal hedonism is partly about noticing when less is more, and that applies to activity just as much as in the realm of consumption.” _– Annie Raser Rowland
Artist, horticulturalist and co-author of The Art of Frugal Hedonism: A Guide to Spending Less While Enjoying Everything More talks about creating a life less dependent on the comforts of consumption and more focussed on extracting maximum pleasure from the most essential parts of being human.
In this conversation, we speak about the routines of a frugal hedonist, limiting the burden of choice in our days, working on the things that might never be seen, recalibrating, relishing, the pleasure of experiences, how we can have the “Getting Feeling” from learning things, not just buying things, busyness as an obsession, and how comparison shapes our ideas of wealth and consumerism.
