Creating Your Vision Board
Motivate yourself to reach your goals by visualizing your dreams coming true.
A Vision Board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goals. 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 through the day.

REFLECT on the past year
See how you may want to adjust some habits or change some of your behaviors, but mostly, it is to figure out what you want more of for the upcoming year.:
What made you happiest current year?
What were you doing on some of your best days current year or maybe over last several years?
Make a gratitude list.
After reflecting back, you’ll want to look forward.
VISUALIZE the future
Picture yourself when you have met your goals. What does it look like? Where are you? Who is around? What are you doing? Think about the temperature and even what you’re wearing. What do you hear? Is there a particular scent in the air? This is visualization and, like I mentioned, is a proven method for helping achieve goals.
What does it look like as you are making progress towards these goals? Because it’s not all about the destination – happiness is in the journey!
Using words – peace, joy, contentment, fulfillment.
FEEL the feelings
What is your WHY? (Your family, freedom, helping others, peacefulness, health/wellness, comfort?)
What motivates you to take steps toward making your dreams a reality? What motivates you to be your best?
Also, what will you feel when you reach your goals? Will you feel proud, ecstatic, blissful, peaceful, calm, overjoyed, warm, confident?
Use a word, phrase, or theme for the year?
What do you need to do FOR yourself to reach your goals or make these dreams a reality? Do you need to put yourself first? Practice self care daily? Be kinder to yourself?
So, when you’ve done this reflecting, brainstorming, and visualizing, you’re ready to create a super awesome Vision Board that you can use to:
Motivate yourself to meet your goals for the year.
Remind yourself of your why (your reasons for doing what you’re doing).
Keep your dreams front and center so you can frequently practice and get the benefits of visualization.
Visualize those dreams – big and small – coming true!
Now, grab the glue, scissors, and magazines. Lets get started!
select words, pictures, colors, themes that bring your dreams to life. Choose a symbol you can place as a constant reminder of the life you have chosen for yourself. When you look at these images, they should remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing and what’s most important to you. Consider how everything you choose relates to your goals and dreams and be purposeful about your design.
Finally, don't forget to celebrate your progress. Celebrating is one way to motivate you to keep going. Celebrations can be big or small. Just make sure you give yourself the acknowledgment you need to continue moving forward.
Have fun with the creating process!
(And, PLEASE don't worry about getting it "perfect.")
