GLOWY Daily Reflection Practice

The GLOWY daily reflection practice includes an original acronym I developed to guide myself and my readers through a mindful reflection. I find practicing the GLOWY daily reflection practice each day helps connect me to myself and those around me.

What GLOWY Means

    Recognize things in your life that you’re grateful for.

  • Lift Up

  • Wholesome Intention

A GLOWY Example

Here’s my GLOWY for my book:

I’m Grateful for my friends, family, beta readers and coaches who’ve helped.

I Lift up the readers of this book, the visitors to my website and anyone seeking a more mindful life—may they be blessed with resources and support beyond their wildest imaginations.

I Observe that I’m excited to share the message of mindfulness with my readers, and a bit nervous, too.

My Wholesome intention is to help others by sharing what I’ve learned and experienced in an accessible way.

You are a creator with a kind, loving heart.
