Why create a vision board?

Vision-Board-Poster-300x223I feel confident saying you have all heard about vision boards before, but what do they mean to you? Have you made a vision board before and if so what did you include on yours? If you have had a vision board in the past or you currently have one, did you find it to be beneficial, why or why not?

Honestly, I have heard about vision boards before, but I was not 100% clear on the purpose or what should be included in it. Of course, I am always intrigued about ways to add as many positive outlooks and or tools to life as I possibly can. With all that the world as a whole is going through at the moment, I think now is a time we all need as much positivity as we can get.rsz_vision-board-example

There are numerous reasons for having a vision board. As I list the questions I was curious about, though please note they are not in any particular order. What is the purpose? What should be included on a vision board? What is needed to create one? Do they really help? Are there any benefits and if so what are they?

There are several reasons to have a vision board and yet there aren’t any rules. Your vision board is a corporeal portrayal of a goal or goals you are focused on accomplishing. It is meant to be your dedicated exhibit of what you want in life. Your vision board can bring your ambitions, desires, dreams, objective, and intentions into your existence and cd8d1c_8bed59f4db02485fa79996edbf45b08c_mv2reality.

The sky is the limit to what you can include on your vision board. Your vision board can be your goals for career, relationship, home, travel, personal growth, education, spirituality, social life, education and anything else revolving around your goals. Your vision board can include things you want to view every day and motivates you. Any quotes, pictures, sayings, and places you desire going to, people that inspire you, reminders of events, and anything that encourages you.

You should give yourself time to create your vision board, it should be fun utilizing your creativity and NEVER stressful. I have discovered a few ideas to help start a vision board that might be helpful which include:dd51b203ce6b932b0643081b965a53ec

  1. I first about the vision when I started therapy for eating disorder for the first time. My therapist helped put one together and gave me all the tools to make my own during sessions. It is does has many benefits and is great to have as a reminder of what you want in life. Unfortunately it never benefited me because of my lack of self-confidence. I am too down on myself to see the goals as reachable. I wish it could work for me and that I wasn’t as negative as I am.

    • I am so sorry to hear this and yet I do understand. Self-confidence is difficult to have, especially in a world we are told what will make us happy. The air brushed perfection we see on the TV and in magazine creates a lot of self-doubt and lack of any confidence. I know this won’t help much, but I believe you to be an amazing person and sometimes we just need a cheerleader to tell us this. I am happy to be your cheerleader Michelle!

  2. I used to have a vision board which helped when I really needed one. Most of the things I put on there came true. When I moved, I couldn’t bring the vision board with me so I mailed it to a friend and told her to keep it. Do I want the vision board back? No. I sent it to her because it was something I made by hand.

      • Hmm, I don’t plan on making another one any time soon unless its a digital vision board (is that even a thing?) I don’t have enough space in my apartment to hang one on my wall at this time. Most of my wall hangings are in storage right now.

      • Maybe using Canva it would be possible to create a virtual vision board. I’m the type who needs to see a physical copy every single day. Right now, I’ve resorted to making lists that highlight my short term and long term goals, and this method seems to be working.

      • I prefer to have physical things instead of an online form, which probably sounds crazy considering I write on my blog. The thing is, I first write it out and then type it. Maybe I am a little crazy! I am so glad what you are doing is work well for you!!! I hope you continue to stay safe and have a great week!


  3. I’ve never made a vision board but have been planning on making one this year since things haven’t exactly gone to plan and I really need to set my goals, so maybe this can be one of the online sessions I run after Easter. Last year I posted up a tutorial on how to make self-love vision boards https://all-hearts.org/2019/10/06/diy-self-love-vision-board/ which are very important at this time and from next week we will be running a number of creative workshops via Zoom starting with journalling if you’d like to join.
