What are your deepest, most personal goals for yourself? Have you always wanted to learn to play piano? Or visit another country ? Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to speak a new language or begin eating healthier. Whatever your goals are, the New Year is the time to visualize them and put them out into the universe. One popular way to visualize your dreams is to create a vision board.
If you’ve never heard of a vision board (or have never made one), it is a tool to help you clarify, concentrate, and stay focused on a specific life goal through visual reminders and positive energy. Quite literally, a vision board is an accumulation of pictures and visual reminders of what you want to work towards and who your ideal self is. In fact, many believe that seeing and stating your goals aloud can help you manifest them into reality. At the very least, a vision board will help remind you every day what you are striving for.
So how do you create a vision board?
· Find inspiration. Flip through some of your favorite magazines or picture books. Cut out things that inspire you and represent your ideal reality, the person you’d like to become (or the person you’d like to continue to be). You may even find mottos, phrases or words that inspire you too. Cut those out as well!
· Buy a big board or a large piece of construction paper. Get some tape or glue, and begin by making a collage of all the pictures, words and ideas you found. It doesn’t matter how you paste them together, so long as you find room and space for everything you want to include.
· Hang it up somewhere you’ll see every day. Maybe this is on your refrigerator or on your bedroom wall. Find a place that you will see your vision board every day to help remind you of everything you want and all the goals you’d like to achieve. At the very least, it’ll help keep you inspired to be your best self and reach for your goals!
Remember that achieving your goals starts by believing you can. So many of us are particularly sensitive to our visual senses, which is why vision boards are so helpful in reminding us each and every day what we are working towards! Not to mention, it’s a fun craft to get you off on the right foot this New Year. Grab a friend and start manifesting your reality in 2018!
