As an attorney in Indiana, I always recommend that my clients have a living will. Sure, it’s not exactly the most exciting thing to think about, but it can give you some much-needed peace of mind and ensure that your wishes are respected if you can’t communicate them yourself.

Think of it like this: a living will is like a roadmap for your healthcare. You get to decide what kind of treatment you want (or don’t want) in advance, so your loved ones and healthcare providers know exactly what to do if the time comes. It can help prevent confusion, disagreements, and even legal battles between family members, which is definitely a good thing.

Having a living will can also provide a little bit of comfort for your loved ones. They won’t have to make difficult decisions on your behalf without knowing what you would have wanted. Instead, they can focus on being there for you and providing emotional support.

And let’s not forget about estate planning! A living will is just one piece of the puzzle, but it can help ensure that your wishes are carried out and the estate plan can ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. Plus, it’s always nice to know that you have your affairs in order, right?

So, while a living will may not be the most exciting thing you do this week (or ever), it’s definitely worth considering. And hey, once it’s done, you can cross it off your to-do list and move on to more fun things. Like, I don’t know, binge-watching your favorite show or eating some delicious takeout. You deserve it!
