To start off with, we’re going to be completely serious. If you or anybody that you know is struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, it is very important to get professional help. You can always call the United States National Suicide Prevention Helpline at 1-800-273-8255. There are also numerous other resources out there that are ready and willing to help you and your loved ones.
Having said that, this list is going to be half serious and half light-hearted. While a good majority of the ways we’ve listed are legitimate, there are a few that we’ve thrown in just to lighten things up a bit, especially considering how dark this list can get. To be honest though, you can take this list however you want to, but probably the best way is the one we suggested in the title…as a an inspiration for gratitude. Our bodies are so frail, and there really are a good number of things out there that can kill us quite easily. It’s always amazing when we wake up in the morning ready to face another day. And that is our primary intention with this list; not necessarily to focus on the death aspect of things, but rather the life aspect. Here are 25 Extremely Easy Ways To Die That Will Make You Appreciate Life.

Living for 100 years
Okay, this is a bit of a joke, but in all seriousness, if you don’t die of anything else on this list, old age will eventually get you. Some scientists even believe that the human body has a maximum life span due to limitations on cell division (note: this is not proven).
Floss. Seriously. Tooth infections can be deadly, especially because your teeth are so close to your blood stream. If contaminants enter your body this way, it can be deadly. Furthermore, the swelling from an infected tooth can even cut off your air supply.
This can happen hours after getting out of the pool. You accidentally breathe in water which eventually causes your vocal chords to spasm and close up, making it impossible to breathe. This typically affects kids several hours after they have left the water.
Taking tylenol for a hangover
Doing this can kill your liver. Why? It’s so busy processing the alcohol that it has to process the tylenol differently (aka not very well). Stick to ibuprofen.
Jumping out the window
This is one of those thoughts that make sane people question whether they’re actually insane…the only thing separating me from certain death right now is one little step.
Note: although everyone considers their mortality every now and then, if you find yourself having this thought even when you are not looking over the edge of a skyscraper, please read our introduction.
