Vision Boards: How-To
If you can dream it, you can do it!
I have been making vision boards since I was a little girl. I remember the first time my dad taught me what a vision board was, and we spent all night cutting out magazines and dreaming up our wildest dreams. Admittedly, I have no idea what was on my vision board. But I do remember spending that day with my dad, and Vision Boards have offered me a peaceful escape ever since.
Josh and I started making our vision boards at home during the month of January for the last several years. I think that the whole month of January is a great time to start your year right, so if you haven’t made your vision board or set your goals for 2019, don’t worry, it’s never too late.
My dear friend Amanda Autry of The Season of Becoming hosts Vision Board Workshops in and around the area! If you see tickets on sale for one of her workshops - run - don’t walk! A little birdie (that bird might be me) told me that she would be hosting a special Be More Babes Vision Board Workshop (in February)! If you are interested in making a vision board, in a room with other like minded women, at a meaningful workshop, to help set your year off right, and with purpose, stay tuned for our date announcement!
In the meantime, if you want to make a vision board at home, here’s what’s up.
Things You Will Need:
Poster Board / Pin Board / Photo Frame / Something to use for your board.
Glue Sticks or Tape
A printer *optional
Wasi Tape *optional
Before I do my vision board I like to use this worksheet!
Taken from here, but edited without the year so it can be reused!
This is another awesome worksheet I like to use. It’s a little more detailed but helps you really get your head in the game!
These worksheets are like a roadmap for your year. What do you want to see, do, feel? How do you want to grow? The worksheets allow you to ask yourself the right questions to create a tangible vision for your year.
Throughout the year I collect various local and national magazines including Time and Baltimore Magazine. I collect these all year long so that in January I can cut them up for my vision board. I allow myself to not feel bad about this because I consider it the price I pay for an awesome year. + I recycle. LOL. Once I know what I want, in general, on my vision board, I go through all of those magazines and try to find images that represent my personal goals. If you can’t find things that are goals of yours in magazines, it’s totally okay to google + print. Thats’s what Josh does.
In addition to goals you can add motivational quotes or sayings!
Here is a link to free vision board printables! I love them.
Do you have all the things you want on your board?
Layout your design.
I like to put all of the things on my board just the way I like them and then take a photo. If you’re not as type A as me, wing it! Put the things on there, and dream the dream, and hang your vision board somewhere where you can see it every single day, to be reminded of the things you are working towards! Josh and I keep ours in our closet so we can look at them every day as we get dressed. Some people make them their phone backgrounds. Some people hang them above their desk. Whatever works for you - but make sure it is placed somewhere prominently for you to visualize!
