Join the Slow & Simple Living Forums & Online Communities •
As much as I’m an advocate for digital minimalism and digital declutter experiments, I got sucked into a Reddit rabbit hole over the weekend. In the past, I would just be a lurker and consumer of Reddit, but I finally decided to join and begin to contribute and create (you can find me at reddit.com/user/slowwco).
Slow & Simple Living Forums on Reddit:
There’s a robust simple living forum that’s 8 years old with 111K subscribers. On the flip side, there’s a virtually nonexistent slow living forum that’s 6 years old with under 100 subscribers. There’s also a slow movement forum with 500 subscribers.
If you’re interested, I created two public multireddits (a collection of subreddits on a similar topic) for slow living:
The subreddits included cover topics like anti-consumption, declutter, degrowth, digital minimalism, downshifting, various topics on Stoicism, ethical living, mindfulness, minimalism, simple and slow living, self-sufficiency, voluntary simplicity, zen and much more.
Slow & Simple Living Groups on Facebook:
There are a bunch of Facebook Groups on these topics. Most are Closed Groups, so you will need to request access to join. Here are some I’ve found to get you started:
- Becoming Unbusy (144,000 members)
- The Minimalist Life (135,000 members)
- No Sidebar (125,000 members)
- Frugal Minimalists (55,000 members)
- Simple Families (12,000 members)
- Simple Collective (9,500 members)
- Slow, Eco, Simple Minimal Living (4,500 members)
- Voluntary Simplicity (2,500 members)
Slow & Simple Living Forums Elsewhere:
Of course, there are other places outside of Reddit and Facebook to engage with like-minded communities:
