Buying Better Globe trees brings happiness!

My heart project is growing!

This last weekend I attended a seminar with the founder of Better Globe, Mr Rino Solberg. It was my first time to meet him personally. He showed to be a gentle and very enthusiastic man with both his feet on the ground. He had big integrity and he even had written a book called “Put Integrity First”. I bought the book but he had not written it mainly for selling to make money. No, he had written it to give away as a gift to all the people he met in different administrations in Africa in his work to make Better Globe best in class with both business and charity. It became a way to say no to corruption without having to argue so much about it.

Buy Better Globe trees and you will buy happiness – again!

Doing good for others is doing good for yourself.

I have written about this theme before but I will use it once more because I find it so valuable. By now you know my heart project is Better Globe. I want to tell about a project that Jan Bolmeson, a friend and colleague in the work with Better Globe, started this spring. When we were in Kenya in February this year we, among other things, visited Mboti Primary School. It is situated way out in the middle of nowhere in one of the poorest and driest parts of Kenya.

Money can buy happiness … if you buy for the right purpose.

As you know from my previous blog texts I believe that health is not only about physical health but also about peace at mind. Looking at the whole picture.

Since I started to blog, tweet ( @AskDrAnnika ) and surf on Facebook ( Ask Dr Annika ) I have found many interesting films and articles on the theme Health and Happiness.  The other day I stumbled upon this very interesting TED Talk:

doing good and making money at the same time!

I am back in my usual world. This world is safe, predictable, structured, wealthy …. My body is here but my mind is still with all the fantastic people I have met during my trip to Kenya with Better Globe. Visiting the poorest of the poorest in Africa. As doctor I have met thousands of patients in Sweden – rich and poor, with all kinds of problems. Often sad because they don’t have everything.

I’m going to Africa with Better Globe

With Better Globe you contribute to a better world while Better Globe
doing good and making money at the same time!

Today’s blog text is different from what I usually write. At first I was thinking this is not about health at all but I soon changed my mind. This is really about health – global health. Then I thought at least it is not about my  or your personal health – but it is too. These issues affect our minds – for good or for bad – and that affects our mental health. Tomorrow I will go to Kenya and see poverty in the eye.
