Intense mindfulness.

Dr. Jackie Gardner-Nix has done a lot of work on helping chronic pain sufferers through mindfulness. She makes this cogent point to encourage us to be more present in our lives:

“Mindfulness is often practiced intensely by one segment of our population: those who are dying. For many whose days are numbered, mindfulness returns and they begin to savor all of their moments, particularly if they have good symptom control. They even appreciate the mundane.”
