They’ll also help you to put things in place to ensure that your end of life choices are aligned with your values and your physical, spiritual and emotional needs. Once you’ve completed the tools, put them aside and get on with living your best life, but you’ll want the tools if:

  • you have a blended family and want your end of life and funeral choices to be clear
  • you haven’t written down the information your loved ones will need to get your affairs in order
  • you haven’t spoken to your family about your end of life choices and how to access your important documents, etc.
  • you have written a Will but you haven’t told anyone what your personal wishes are (haven’t written a Living Will’

About the author…

I believe the greatest legacy we can leave our loved ones is to take responsibility for our death while we’re alive.

Hello. Talking about death seems macabre doesn’t it? So why have I been banging on about it for more than 20 years? Click on the video to see me talk about how I came to be ‘the poster girl for death and dying’, or read on.

I created the Rest Easy Tools and trainings to help Australians to easily get their affairs in order so that those they leave behind aren’t left with a mess.

Some people say to me, “I have my affairs in order, I’ve written a will”, others say, “I want to get my affairs in order but I don’t know where to start”. And others tell me that they don’t want to talk about death because it’s too weird.

As a funeral celebrant who also provides palliative care, I have witnessed far too many families in stress and breakdown as they try to navigate their loved ones affairs while in deep grief. And there’s so much more to getting your affairs in order than just writing a will.

I talk about death and dying because my fear of placing stress on those I love far outweighs my fear of dying some day, so I decided to face death before it faced me. I learnt all I could about my options and what it would take to process my death, and created tools to help my family.

Shanna Provost is known as a social commentator on death literacy, a community leader in the end of life space, a funeral celebrant, workshop trainer, keynote speaker and advocate for dying well across Australia.
