With 2018 right around the corner, I have started working on my vision board. I began doing this a couple of years ago and it’s amazing the impact it has made. So, what is a vision board you ask. Well, you can find many different definitions but for our purposes here, we are going to use it as a tool to envision what we are going to make happen in the upcoming year. We have to envision what we want before we can get to setting some goals that we want to achieve. In this case, the universe isn’t going to give it to us. We have to develop a plan, set some goals, and get to work
What Can I Put On My Vision Board?
Your vision board is yours, so you can decide what goes on it. They usually involve a visual display of things that inspire you. It could be pictures of places you want to travel, people you want to spend more time with, activities that you want to engage in – the options are endless. You can use your own pictures, visuals from magazines or things you have printed online. If you are really creative, you might even have some of your own drawings. Hopefully you wind up with a beautiful display of things that make you happy, but also motivate you to live your best life.
How Do I Make A Vision Board ?
Step 1. Gather your supplies.
- Poster board or very large piece of paper
- Magazines to look through (ones that you don’t mind cutting)
- Copies of pictures
- Word clouds or motivational statements
- Glue or tape
- Stickers or other crafty accessories (if you really want to get fancy)
Step 2. Spend some time cutting things out and arranging them on your poster board. Once you decide how you want it to look, glue or tape things down and add any crafty flair that you want.
Step 3. Place your vision board where you can see it on a regular basis.
Creating a vision board is the first step to making 2018 your best year. The next is looking at some of those things on your vision board and setting goals to achieve them. It might involve saving money to take a trip or carving out time for meal planning to eat healthier.
