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.

According to the New York Times, bathrooms can be the most deadly place in the house (drownings, falls, etc). Always make sure to shower sober and with a shower mat.

We all get a little runny nose every once in a while and just chalk it up to allergy season, but for some people, allergies go a lot further. There are even people that are allergic to water! So be grateful because people have died from ingesting just one little peanut.
It’s one of the most dangerous activities you will ever partake in. In fact, traffic accidents kill 3 times more people worldwide than war and homicide combined. (traffic fatalities – 1.24 million, war/homicide – .44 million)
Carbon monoxide poisoning
You can’t see it, and you can’t smell it, but it can kill you. CO leaks caused by faulty heaters and gas appliances are a very real but very avoidable cause of death. Make sure you have CO alarms in your house.
