make peace with something: to accept a difficult or unpleasant situation
Can Technology Help Us Face Our Own Death and Live with Purpose?
WeCroak is an app that sends users five reminders a day about their death. The goal is to help people find happiness by thinking about their limited time on Earth. There are many religious and philosophical traditions that encourage reflecting on death. They teach that making peace with death can lead to happier lives. They remind us that life is short, so we should not waste it.
There are other tech tools like WeCroak that also remind people of their mortality. The Failflow website shows your remaining weeks on Earth. The Tikker watch counts down your life to the second.
