For a culture that prides itself on aging well, it's time we learned how to die well. That's why we adopted the term "death literacy."
Death literacy isn't some canned slogan, but a toolkit of knowledge and experiences that grow over the course of a lifetime. Your lifetime.
Death literacy asks one to consider their own end of life and then do something about it... long before the end. Becoming death literate signals an acceptance of mortality and a recognition there's tremendous value in preparing to prepare, while you're busy doing this thing called life.
Death literacy is something you do it for yourself, your loved ones and for generations to come. So start anywhere. You'll be surprised at how you'll begin looking at life in a whole new light.
