The Simple Life

It seems enchanting, "The Simple Life," but how do we achieve it in today's world lead by consumerism, corporations, and individualism?  I'd love to have a garden and some animals, but I work everyday. How am I supposed to manage a small farm when I am not even home the majority of the day? I'd love to live on several acres in the middle of nowhere, but I love the convenience and culture of city life too. Bah! How do we achieve the mentalities and activities of "The Simple Life" while living in a modern society? Thoughts?
