It’s National Vision Board Day and I thought for this weeks, Self Care Tip, to celebrate why not create a vision board.
Whether you go old school and pull out the glue sticks, scissors and all your old magazines and start filling up poster board with your dreams, goals and visions for 2019. You can also go the digital route and create a vision board on Pinterest too.
As you create your vision board here are a few tips to keep in mind.
#1 Get Clear– Before you start cutting or pinning images, have a clear idea of your goals for the year and how you want to feel.
If you need to write out a quick outline before you start, that will help you focus and not feel overwhelmed as you search for images.
#2 Create — As you look for images, go with the ones that spark a feeling or emotions that you want to see for yourself each year. Find words and phrases that inspire you. Also incorporate your word or theme for the year too (if you have one.)
Clip and post these images on poster board or if you want something smaller look at getting a sketch book or notebook and create a vision journal and adding those images to the pages in the book and if you want write a few words about goals or dreams with the pictures.
#3 Have Fun–The process of creating a vision board should be fun. If you want have an impromptu gathering of all your friends and make a day of it.
#4 Review — Place your vision board somewhere you can see it or if it’s a vision journal a place where you can look at it regularly to keep you inspired and focused. If you want to go a step further make a note of any goal that has happened and celebrate.
Visualization is a powerful tool when it comes to reaching our dreams and goals for the year. Creating a vision board is a great way to create a place to focus not just on how you want to feel this year but all the things you want to do. I usually make a Pinterest vision board each year but this year I think I’m going to create a vision journal. Whether you make a vision board or not. I hope you find what works for you to keep your inspired throughout the year as you work towards your goals this year.
