As we think about ways to be a positive change in the world it always comes back to taking care of and investing in our people (all sentient beings on this planet).
Here at Hellagood Life, I’ve been seeking ways to help people live their best life when I found myself in depression for two years. Many of needs may not have been being met, but I also had so many of them that were being met, so I’ve been on a journey exploring better ways to meet our needs.
This is an ongoing journey, and I do not know all the answers, but I will try to continue to update things as we learn more and find new resources.
I might also say, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is not complete or even perfect, but it gives us a basis to work from or get started with.
This is a tough one as clean air and water can dependent on where you live and your personal resources. I’ll try to provide resources as best I can, but in all honesty, I’d like to help all sentient beings, not just Americans so hopefully we’ll find new resources and add to this list of resources. One of my passions is fighting poverty and some resources will not be relevant to all people, but again, I’ll try to find resources for all people and all income and resource levels.

In my own journey to improve my sleep I started working with doctors to help me learn a bit more about my own difficulties sleeping at times. I have a resources I will share that I use and that were results of working with a doctor in the space that helped me create online training for myself and to help others.
The first resource is an online course called the Deep Sleep Course and it course all areas related to better understanding sleep and building a better sleep hygiene for yourself. I offer this course as a free course but do require people to enroll in the course. Below is a sample of one lesson.
The Importance of Sleep - Lesson 1 of the Deep Sleep Course
I also offer paid solutions to help with sleep.
Healthy Living Positive Lifestyle
Healthy Living is a series of online course related to many different things related to living a healthy lifestyle. This mini-course covers some other lessons on sleep beyond what the free Deep Sleep Course offers.
Meditation For SLEEP
If we are having problems with sleep, sometimes we need practices to get us to sleep or back to sleep. This is a mini-meditation bundle that offers a few different meditations to practice calming down and priming yourself for a good nights sleep.
When it comes to Safety Needs we may all have different ideas on what this means and what is needed to feel safe. In my mind, the main thing is autonomy (the quality or state of being under ones own self-control – having the ability to make decisions to do and be what you want, when you want. Freedom).
We have things like Personal Security, Employment, Resources, Health, and Property.
Love and Belonging
Loving and Belonging is such an important part of living a fulfilling and rewarding life. We often over look the importentance of connection to others in our journey for happiness
We have things like Friendship, Intimacy, Family, and Sense of Connection.
