    "Story at-a-glance

    .......While a regret can be phrased either as an action or as an inaction, regrets framed as actions tend to be more emotionally intense than regrets about inactions, but inactions tend to be longer lasting

    .......One of the most frequently cited regrets at the end of life is not having the courage to be true to oneself but rather doing what others expected

    .......Other common end-of-life regrets include: Working too much, not expressing one’s feelings, not staying in touch with friends, and taking life too seriously and allowing worries to diminish happiness

    .......Most men, at the end of life, say they regret missing out on family time because of excessive work

    .......At the end of life, many finally realize that happiness is an inside job — a choice, not a side effect of living any particular kind of life, and regret taking life too seriously and allowing worries to diminish their happiness"

    "Americans are pushing the boundaries of how to memorialize their loved ones and dispose of their remains.

    What do you want to happen to your remains after you die?

    For the past century, most Americans have accepted a limited set of options without question. And discussions of death and funeral plans have been taboo.


    That is changing. As a scholar of funeral and cemetery law, I’ve discovered that Americans are becoming more willing to have a conversation about their own mortality and what comes next and embrace new funeral and burial practices.

    Baby boomers are insisting upon more control over their funeral and disposition so that their choices after death match their values in life. And businesses are following suit, offering new ways to memorialize and dispose of the dead.

    While some options such as Tibetan sky burial—leaving human remains to be picked clean by vultures—and “Viking” burial via flaming boat—familiar to Game of Thrones fans—remain off limits in the U.S., laws are changing to allow a growing variety of practices."
