Make A Vision Board for 2018

If you’re already losing focus on your goals, try making a vision board! Making vision boards is a great exercise for the New Year to set intentions for you and your family!

Using words and images, they visually show you your goals and dreams. Your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation, so not only does the process cement your goals in your mind, but seeing your board in a prominent place triggers this visual cue.

The process of making a vision board is very simple, and from what I found – letting yourself be free and un-constricted will help a vision emerge. It can also totally help you get ‘unstuck’ if you are in a rut. I noticed that my board was indicating my desire for colour, relaxation and simplicity. Your brain works to try and achieve the statements you give to your subconscious. You are giving attention to things you desire and will naturally experience more of these things.

Tip 1: A vision board isn’t just about the things you WANT, but how you want to FEEL. It needn’t just be magazine clippings and words – depending on your style and design sensibilities it can fit perfectly into your decor.

Tip 2: One great tip is to make it your screensaver on your phone, ipad and laptop as well. As you achieve your goals and dreams, make sure to feel gratitude, and you will experience more good things.

Tip 3: This is a great activity to do with kids! When the kids did theirs, I noticed several trends that the boys had never expressed verbally.

What you Need to Construct a Vision Board:

  • Poster Board or bulletin board
  • Magazines
  • Glue/tape
  • Push pins
  • Scissors
  • Frame (optional)
