You may be in a rut or have too much routine. Break it. Do things spontaneously.Challenge yourself in some way, define a new goal for yourself and start.
Life is now, not yesterday, not next year - not even next hour.
Blow some bubbles with the kid down the street, try some ethnic food you've never tried, work on learning some phrases in a foreign language that you might like knowing.
Most of all get physically active,
Do that and the rest will follow for you and you'll stop worrying so much about death.
Dying only sucks if we've never lived.

I've bookmarked your thread for when I have a little extra time to respond. I've actually discovered something that may help you a lot, but it does take a bit to properly explain it. The bottom line is that yes, you are already eternal, and that when your body finally dies, you'll be surprised afterward at what a non-event it actually was.
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26 NKJV
I suggest you look into the NDE literature. Check out NDERF.org for a vast library of near death experiences. Materialist scientists like to complain that this is all anecdotal and cannot be "proven" scientifically, but that is just putting on blinders and refusing to observe what is going on in the real world.
