How to Create A Vision Board
Vision boards are a great way to keep yourself focused and directed towards a purpose while satisfying your creative bug. Here is an easy way to make a simple vision board and start working toward your goals today. Make your intentions clear First, it is important to identify what your goals and intentions are; that is, what do you want to achieve and how do you see yourself getting there? What kind of feelings do you expect to encounter along the way, and how will you feel when you have accomplished it? Be sure of what you want and write it down.
Collect the required supplies Most of the supplies you need for your vision board you probably already have lying around the house. Blank art book or Poster Board Glue or pins Markers, pens, and paints Colorful or plain paper Magazines, newspapers, books that can be cut up, and journals Scissors
Create an ambient environment It is important to create a comfortable and open space to make your board. You want to be able to spread out and see everything that you have on the floor or a table. You can also create an ambient environment by playing some of your favorite music and lighting some candles to relax and tap into your positive energies. Choose your images and words wisely Use words and images to which you can easily relate and those that will help motivate you to move towards your goal. You can cut out the images from magazines and newspapers or use some of your own photos. All of them should be appealing and attractive to you in one way or another.
Paste them Go through the images and words you chose, select your favorite ones, and paste them on the board or sheet in a way that reflects your feelings and intentions. Before pasting them arrange them the way want them on the poster board or sheet, and then attach them. Never choose images or words that may have a negative impact on your feelings or make you feel unmotivated about your goals.
Place your vision board where you can see it often Your vision board should serve as a reminder for you, so you should place or hang it somewhere visible where you can easily connect to it. Your bedroom or bathroom mirror is a great place, or in your kitchen.
Notice and heal Note your feelings when you look at your board or when you think about working toward and reaching your goal. Note any resistance or negative feelings; work to find the underlying reasons and resolve them as you journey toward your goal.
Vision boards do not have to be big or time-intensive. Make one today for a goal you have been aiming for and see how it can help you get to where you want to be in life.
