Breaking barriers and illuminating minds: Glow Hour set to sweep the nation, elevating mental health with a revolutionary one hour of self reflection program
Glow Hour, a 2,500-strong movement of mum’s across Australia who are dedicated to promoting mental health, announces the launch of a transformative national movement starting on June 22, 2023 that encourages individuals to embrace self-reflection as a key step to elevating their mental well-being.
“At Glow Hour, we believe the simple act of dedicating just one hour on a regular basis to self-reflect, people can recharge, gain clarity, and create a positive ripple effect in their lives and communities”, says Samantha Norrie, co-founder of Glow Hour.
On June 22, 2023, and in the days, weeks and months ahead, Australians from all walks of life are invited to participate in Glow Hour. This powerful initiative prompts individuals to light a candle, step back from their busy life, and engage in introspection. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with oneself, identify strengths and areas for growth, and lay the foundation for improved well-being.
In today’s fast-paced and demanding world, prioritising self-care is essential. Glow Hour serves as a reminder that taking time for yourself is not selfish—it is a vital component of leading a balanced and fulfilling life. By embracing self-reflection, individuals can enhance their mental resilience, improve their overall emotional well-being, and become better equipped to support others.
Glow Hour is a versatile movement that accommodates various lifestyles and schedules. Whether you’re a parent, student, professional, or caregiver, dedicating an hour to self-reflection can provide a sense of peace, clarity, and renewed purpose. It is a simple yet profound practice that empowers individuals to prioritise their mental health.
According to Norrie, “Our goal for Glow Hour is to engage 100,000 Australians over the coming months from June 22, 2023, to champion the importance of self-reflection and mental well-being by doing their own Glow Hour. This movement is not limited to a single day but aims to inspire a lasting commitment to self-care and introspection. Together, we can build a society where mental well-being is valued, nurtured, and accessible to all through something as simple as this.”
We hope as many Australians will join us in illuminating the path to mental well-being for all. Together, let’s dismantle the stigma surrounding mental health and create a society where self-care is celebrated and embraced.
