What are vision boards?

What are vision boards? 

  Vision boards are like bulletin boards - a collage of pictures & words that mean something quite meaningful and inspirational to the ‘artist’. Hopes, aspirations, dreams are placed on a single ‘board’ that will positively remind the creator of what it is he or she most wants or just as importantly… how they want to feel. It could be exceptional health, inner peace, or all the things that you want your life to encompass.

Who should make a vision board?

  Vision boards are for everyone at any age! They are for people who want to create a visual of the future. When someone is going through a health crisis, a vision board can become an important visualizing tool to help achieve a positive mindset to promote healing.

In my case, my vision board was “hope for my future” by creating positivity, good health, & surrounding myself with love from both my family and girlfriends.

  Creating a special space that displays what you want actually does bring it to life. Because … what we focus on expands.

When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing short visualization exercises throughout the day. Or you can intentionally choose a time everyday to look at your board bringing the thoughts & feelings you have visually created into your consciousness.

How to Create a Vision Board

Tools: large poster or cork board, scissors, tape, glue, magazines, favorite pictures, markers, paper

Step 1. Think of what makes you most happy .. what makes you feel peaceful or calm? Who are the most important people in your life? What color do you love? What saying or quote gives you a good feeling inside?

Step 2. Page through magazines and your favorite photos. What makes you smile? If you have access to a computer and printer – take the time to google pictures or things you love like the ocean, a sunset, ice cream, your friends and family. What pictures align with what you want to achieve? Do any of the pictures jump out at you? Pull aside any of the images and photos that seem to speak to you.

Step 3. What phrases or quotes sum up what you want for your future, or which ones make you feel really good inside?. Write down these sayings with colorful markers or print them out.

Step 4. Now you should have a host of visuals and words to assemble on your board. Tape or paste them … they can overlap if you want. Just enjoy assembling this puzzle together – it will make you smile!

Step 5. Take the time to reflect and look at your board often. Let the pictures and words empower you about your life and where you are going.
