Read about near−death experiences
Dannion Brinkley in his book Saved By The Light, based off his own experience, explains that our lives are not really ended when our physical bodies die. This understanding can grant you acceptance and peace.
We will all die maybe some in 5 minutes, or in 50 years. 200 years from now our world will change and none of us will be here. Accepting the inevitable helps to relieve stress and anxiety. This book contains more insights on facing mortality.
Forgive yourself others their mistakes. We all make mistakes, but you need to realize that we are doing the best we can. Much of the death anxiety, or fear of death, comes from a fear of judgment and hell.
We cannot undo the mistakes we have made in the past. But we can often ask forgiveness, repay debts and make amends. These actions can heal the sense of guilt and death anxiety.
When it comes to life and death, that is beyond human power. If you are religious, it is really best to ask those questions to God. Ask God to remove the fear, so that you will be able to serve him better.
First, visualize death as a kind and loving event - a sacred transition. Imagine someone who goes through this transition right now. They are genlty released from the body and welcomed by the loving presence of God. Imagine and feel this transition as a healing experience for this person.
Fear of death is an uncomfortable emotion that we project on to the future. Ask yourself, is everything OK right now? Focus on your life and not on the end of it. Focus on what you can control. When we stay firmly in the present, there is no fear.

Recognize the role your body plays on a macro level
On a larger perspective our lives fit together to form societies and communities which depend on our energy and actions in order to sustain a certain level of organization. Your own body has the same mechanisms and consists of the same materials as other ones around you. Understanding this can help you become more comfortable with the thought of a world without you still being around.
Tea, cola, hot chocolate energy drinks and other caffeinated beverages boost the energy and concentration levels. However, caffeine decreases serotonin in the brain, making you feel depressed and irritable.
Moreover, caffeine is a diuretic and may lead to dehydration, and even mild dehydration can cause depression. Caffeine also can keep you awake, leading to stress and anxiety. There is even a state called coffee-induced anxiety when the symptoms of caffeine intake - sweaty palms, increased heartbeat, ringing in the ears - lead to a panic attack in a anxiety-prone people.
Some people believe that alcohol soothes anxiety. However its effect is only temporary and in fact alcohol is both a sedative and a depressant. Your body can build tolerance to it's initial de-stressing effect which makes anxiety even more difficult to deal with. It is also a diuretic, and may lead to dehydration, and even mild dehydration can cause depression.
