A vision board is a great motivational and therapeutic way to set goals and bring them to fruition.
By creating a simple collection of images, notes and ideas you can create a powerful visualization of what you want in your life. Then, place it in a noticeable place that so you are inspired and reminded every day of what you are working on in your life.
Here’s how to get started
Making a vision board is a fun activity to do with friends and children. It is also a great way to inspire others by sharing your visions. So, play some of your most inspiring music, gather your friends or family and start designing your vision board today.
Making your Vision Board:
Gather your Supplies. You will need:
- Glue, push pins or tape
- Fun markers, pens, paint, glitter glue
- Post-it-notes, colorful paper and fun magazines
- A background
Start with your Background. Use a piece of cardboard, poster board or cork board. Be creative. Any and all will work just fine. I have even seen someone use a big picture frame and hang it on their wall. It can be a big, medium or small vision board.
Find your Images and Content. Magazines are great for finding pictures and words that represent who you are and who you strive to be, where you are going and the goals you are working on.
Posted notes or colorful paper are used to write out your intentions, goals and motivational quotes.
Some folks will just use magazines, and some simply write out their visions. You can always do both. This is where your creativity comes in.
You may want to personalize it even more by adding a picture of yourself.
Placing Your Vision Board:
Placement is crucial to your success. You want your vision board to be located somewhere inspirational and in a spot that is related to the goals you want to achieve.
For example, if your goals are to eat healthier or lose weight, you may want to put it on the refrigerator (then read my Mindful Eating article Here). If your goals are business related, place it in your office. Relationship goals? Hang your board in your bedroom.
Making the vision board is the fun part, but don’t forget to take action and continue to dream, move forward and stay positive.
Changing Your Vision Board:
For me, it is important to re-evaluate my vision board and switch it up if it isn’t aligning in my life anymore. I probably change mine about 4 times a year!
You can leave blank spots so that you can add to it, use push pins so you can easily add to or take away your creations.
Have fun visioning!
Let me know how it goes. I would love to hear from you!
