With the new year days away, it’s a great time to look into ways that the new year can bring you closer to your goals and dreams. That’s where a vision board comes in. A visual representation of your inspiration and goals can do a lot to help actualize your dreams.

What a vision board is
Have you ever had a board with images that inspire you in your room, or even on your wall? Well, that’s one version of a vision board, and it’s a great tool to use to inspire yourself. How else can you work to something you have not seen? When you get some free time, make a vision board and post it in your room, home office, office, or anywhere you can see it regularly.

Making a vision board
It’s not hard to make at all. Essentially, a vision board is a collage of images you pulled from magazines, online, and other sources. Those images are then put on a board in whatever fashion or form that is most appealing to you. The point is, it should be inspiring to you. A good idea is to have the vision board in your bedroom. That way, when you wake up, you see it. It works wonders for your productivity and keeps you motivated to your ultimate goals. When those goals change, simply change the vision board.

What a vision board is used for
A vision board can be used to inspire your style and fashion. How do you want your closet to look ideally? It could also be used to inspire your career goals. What do you want to do one day? What kind of business are you looking to have? Start with your favorite magazines. There’s always an article or two that inspire you in a way that makes you go, “Yeah, I wanna do that one day.” That’s a great place to start. Also, include images and colors that make you feel good.
