How To Guide: 2017 (Visualizing Your Goals)

Over the past few years, vision boards have become a rather popular way to envision what you want for the future. I personally love vision boards! I believe in putting positive vibes, hopes, and dreams out into the universe — plus I’m a huge fan of anything DIY or crafty! Here are some tips and examples for making your own inspirational planners, journals, and vision boards to help you envision your goals!

How To Create A Vision Board/Journal:

  • Decide what works best for you:
    • Some years I’ve decided to opt for a tri-fold board (which I broke into 3 categories: health/lovecareer, and future/lifestyle/dreams) that I hung in my room so that I would see it everyday. This year, however, I have opted for a dream journal so that I can be more specific and also keep track of my goals and progress better.
  • Make your resolutions:
    • Decide on your goals and what you want out of this year. This will give you some motivation and guidance when you are looking for materials for your board/journal.
  • Gather your supplies:
    • After you’ve set your goals, you are going to need supplies to make your board:
      • Journal/Board/Planner
      • Glue
      • Scissors
      • Markers/Pens/Paint
      • Magazines
      • Printouts (words, images, etc.)
  • Create space and time:
    • Make sure you are in a comfortable and creative environment so that you can focus on your goals and your board/journal.
  • Choose your words:
    • Look online or in magazines and find images or words that speak to you — these should coincide with the goals you have set or should be positive things that make you happy.
  • Create:
    • After you’ve found enough images and words, go ahead and start laying out your board/journal and begin to create your dream board!
  • Revisit and track:
    • As I mentioned in my resolution post, make sure your goals and your dream board are in a place that you will see them often — everyday, several times a day — so that you will stay focused and on track with your goals.
