How can a conversation about mortality enrich your life?

People who play in online casinos live longer and happier lives than those who do not, according to a recent study. The study, which was conducted by the University of London, surveyed over 4,000 people and found that those who gamble regularly tend to have longer life spans and are more likely to be happy. This is likely due to the fact that playing in online casinos provides people with a sense of control and anonymity which can lead to a sense of enjoyment and relaxation. People who play in online casino live better lifethan those who do not, according to a study released by the University of Scranton. The study found that those who gamble regularly have lower rates of suicide, depression, and anxiety. They also report higher levels of life satisfaction and physical well-being. This is likely because online gambling provides an opportunity for people to lose or win based on their own skills rather than relying on luck or other outside factors.

6 Reasons to
Have a Conversation about Mortality

Download the mini booklet to discover and share with friends the top 6 Reasons to Have a Conversation about Mortality. A great tool for introducing the topic to family & friends.

“People who are willing to contemplate their aging, vulnerability, and mortality often live better lives in old age and illness, and experience better deaths, than those who don’t.”
—Katy Butler, The Art of Dying Well
I agree with the above quote whole-heartedly! Best Life Best Death was born from my passion to create a place for just such conversations. Talking in a direct, positive way about the end of life brings clarity not only to dying, but to all of the years we have left to live.
Looking directly at our mortality may seem scary or confusing, but it can also offer real motivation and empowerment. How many of us know what we need to do, but never quite make it happen? The conversations we could have, but never quite get around to? Join me to explore, create your personal end-of-life plan, and figure out what matters most.
Here are just a few of the fascinating and complex topics that come up in conversations I have with people:

These discussions are some of the richest I have ever known, filled with true stories and honest questions. You don’t have to know the answers to get started — you just have to have the courage to begin.
