A compassionate approach to end-of-life care:
The Best Possible Day
If you are dying, how do you want to spend your time? The answer is not always obvious.
“Saturday Night Widows” is back in the news – Live Happy magazine features an article on how I formed the group and wrote the book. Plenty of experts chime in about how people can make their way forward after setbacks as we did, with the help of friendship, laughter and seeking out new experiences.
Even silly movies. George Bonanno of Columbia University says it may seem artificial to watch funny movies in tough times, but it’s a reminder to have joyful experiences.
Sometimes, I say, the sillier the better. I remember seeing “Airplane!” when my husband was sick, and it was such a relief to tune out the grim and laugh.
