  • Chapter Seventeen: Accepting Dying and Death The goal of this chapter is to help people realize that the reality of death can serve as a focal point for a more enjoyable, productive, and contributive life. Once we have accepted the reality that someday we are going to die, each day becomes more meaningful and we can live each day fuller, as if it could be our last day. This chapter should provide a framework for understanding the concept of death and how people deal with this, with the hope we can learn to accept this as reality and be able to give us another reason for living healthier.
