In this episode, Gabe talks with PsychCentral.com editor-in-chief Dr. John Grohol about the importance of planning for the end of life. We all know that everybody dies, but at the same time, no one wants to think about their own inevitable death. Do you know how you would like the end of your life to go? What if you needed to make that decision for a loved one? Do you know what they want? Would they want to be resuscitated? Do they want to die at home or in a hospital? Do you even know what kinds of decisions need to be made, or what the options are?
Listen in as Dr. John explains that there is a degree of wisdom in realizing that everything must pass, and your time will come. When death is approaching, you don’t have to welcome it, but you also don’t have to fight it. Learn how planning for your own (or a loved one’s) death doesn’t have to be an existential crisis, but can instead provide a degree of safety and comfort.
