As we approach the close of another year, I always feel bittersweet... One because how the heck did the year go by so fast? And two, because it allows me think about what I am going to visualize for the next year. What do I want to do? Where do I want to go? Who do I want to go with? What personal goals do I have? What are my health and fitness goals? How do I want to grow my business this year? So many options and yet there is a method to this madness. It is called a vision board.
While I did not reach all of my goals this year, I am proud of how much work I did personally to overcome some major obstacles in my life. I and am so grateful for the experiences I had, my time with friends and the new things that I learned.
As a lifestyle coach, I feel very passionate about assisting everyone in curating a beautiful life through their homes, style and self care and creating a vision board is always part of this creative journey.
Making a vision board is a important part of my new year planning. It is fun, it is creative and it gets me focused on what I am craving in my life.
Here are a few of my tips for making a vision board that works.
#1 Take inventory of what areas of your life you want to focus on.
Is is work, romance, health, food, style, your kids, learning a new talent? If this was your last year on earth, what would you do? How would you spend your time? Where would you go? OK - now you're thinking! What we put in our minds we curate so better make it what you want.
#2 Remember to focus on you.
What are your cravings, desires, needs, feelings, mood and what makes you feel good and happy inside. Do not compare yourself to others as this is YOUR life not theirs.
#3 Get a notebook out and write down your goal areas and then under each goal list the three things you are going to do in the next 6 months to accomplish this life goal.
This is a VERY important part of the Vision Board Process as writing down your goals and action steps sets your brain up for success.
#4 Get visual
When you are finished with your list, grab some magazines, scissors, a bottle of bubbly or a cup of tea and find images or sayings that help create a visual of your goals.
#5 Make your board
Once you have your images you can begin to put them on the board. I recommend not gluing anything down until you have laid it all out. You use poster board, a cork board, or whatever will work best for you. Remember it should be beautiful as you need to see this every day and night to remind you of your goals for the year. Once you are done, snap a photo of it so you have it with you at all times. Also share it with one or many of your girlfriends. This public declaration will again help set the intentions even deeper into your brain.
Ok now that you know how to curate the best year ever! Take a snap and share with me! I would love to see it.
