Create a Positive Outlook With a Vision Board (and How To)

Create a Positive Outlook With a Vision Board (and How To)

Hands up who loves having something to aspire to or look forward to?

A bit of a direction when life looks a bit negative.

That’ll be me then.

We do need a way to remember what those things are because life is just too damn complicated sometimes for us to remember everything all of the time.

One way of doing this is to create a vision board.

What is a vision board then?

A vision board is a way of collecting together words and pictures that depict things we would love to have in our lives

When the going gets tough, it is used as a reminder for all the good things we want to do or bring into our lives.

So how we go about creating one then?

Creating a vision board should be an easy and enjoyable process.

1. Decide on what you want to put on your board.

This is a great excuse to have a bit of a brainstorm and let your imagination run wild.

Get a piece of paper or a brand new digital note.

Anything you’d like to happen goes.

The house you’d love to live in, the dream job or business you’ve always wanted.  The places you’ve always wanted to visit. The people you’ve always wanted to meet. The book you’ve always dreamed you’d write.

Put it all down.

2. Decide how you are going to create your board

There are a number of ways you could create your board.

If you are a crafter, you could choose to get out your craft stash. Definitely a good opportunity to break out those gel pens and scrapbook papers

If you are more of a digital person, then you could choose to open your favourite piece of software to create your layout.

I am sure you might be able to think of other ways

3. Get creating

Now for the fun bit.

Select all or your bestest ideas from step 1 and get creating.

Find pictures of the things you’d loved to have.

Create words or sayings.

Combine them together in a way that works for you.

Any size. Any format. Anything goes.

It is your layout so design it and work it your way.

4. Put it somewhere you can see it.

There is no real point in having a vision board if you can’t see it as a reference when you need it. So no hiding it in the cupboard or under a great pile of papers.

Put it somewhere obvious. Pin it to the fridge. Wherever it will get seen.

Look at it whenever you need a bit of a reminder about what positive things you want to have in your life.

Over to you. Have you ever created a vision board? How did you create it? Got any more useful tips on how to create one you’d like to share?

  1. I only recently started doing vision “boards” in my art journal and I have to say that it is tremendously helpful. (Plus fun, hehe)

    Your suggestion to put one on the fridge is a good one. I might attach a thick book board sheet to a magnet, then paint it and add removable elements. That way, I can re-use it as my visions come to fruition or change.

    Thanks for the tip!

    1. Hi Trisha,

      Thank you for your lovely comment.

      I really love your idea for creating removable elements. That gives me an idea for creating a ‘done’ board too to remove visions to when they are done, so it would be possible to see just how many visions have become a reality. A good motivator I think.

      Have a great week.

      Jo
