Death comes to us all, so you might as well be ready, right?

What are the best ways to die?

It’s the conversation so many of us just aren’t DYING to have!


Death! Died! Dead! Deceased! There, we said the words!

Yet, death is the one thing in life, guaranteed, we all have in common. We promise, talking about death isn’t going to hurt you but it might just get you thinking! So, here’s the top ten best ways to die.

30 million Facebook accounts belong to dead people

It’s a stat which blows our mind but there are 30 million Facebook accounts which belong to dead people. Think about it! Who are you leaving your wonderful photos and videos currently locked away on your social media and email accounts to? What about the treasure trove of memories held on your mobile? Or the important online stuff which only you know the password to? Time to sort your digital legacy and even make a digital Will!

Say thanks for the memories

When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. Hold on to those memories by making a memory journal, book or box.

Don’t leave it too late

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness for which there’s no cure, don’t struggle on alone. For FREE specialist care refer yourself right now to get all the help you need  from the first day you’re diagnosed. Refer yourself to Keech, they really can help.

Feel the power of music

Time to confess, we love a bit of ABBA but can you really have Dancing Queen blasting out as the curtain closes? Yes! In fact, with Playlist for Life you can make a soundtrack of your life ready for your funeral or give it to loved ones to evoke fond memories. We love this idea!

Make sure where there’s a Will, there’s your wishes

We all know we should have a Will – so what’s stopping you making yours? Is it because you can’t think about death? Hello? It’s what you’re doing right now! Take it out of the too hard box, no more delaying, make a FREE Will right now.  Seriously, not making a Will, could cause distress for your loved ones.

Know what becomes of the broken hearted

Let’s face it, when you die, you’re going to leave a lot of heartbroken people behind. Even though you won’t be here, take some of their stress away by pre-planning and at the same time, make sure your funeral wishes are met. If you’re feeling teary, don’t watch this. It really hits home why it’s so important you’ve made it clear exactly what you want!   

Leave the gift of life

The rules have changed and now you need to opt out of being an organ donor and not opt in. But, did you know, you can still state what organs you do or don’t want to donate?

Live life to the full!

You’re not dead yet so get out there and get living! Don’t keep working in a job you hate, find a new one. Give others pleasure and get the feel-good factor by volunteering. Have fun as a family! We heard the latest craze is throwing paint at each other! Seriously, check it out!
