Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully. Life and death are a package deal. They cannot be pulled apart and we cannot truly live unless we are aware of death.

They can be understood as best practices for anyone coping with loss or navigating any sort of transition or crisis; they guide us toward appreciating lifeâ€™s preciousness. Awareness of death can be a valuable companion on the road to living well, forging a rich and meaningful life, and letting go of regret.
