What is a vision board?

A Vision board is a small or large collection of images from various mediums. You regularly use these images as inspiration to drive your motivation and goals. The idea behind the board, is that you are essentially seeing it into action . The more times you tell yourself, this is what I want to do; the more focused you will become on making it happen. Life can get complicated, stressful and overwhelming. By working towards several small goals, rather than one large goal, will be much more achievable. As you accomplish each small goal, you will get an added boost of encouragement to go for the next!


Getting started with your vision board | what are your goals?

Take some time to write a list of 10-20 things you would like to achieve for the year, month or however long you want your vision board to last for. I personally make mine every 6 months, as I like to work on new things often. ask yourself several questions to get your brain juices flowing.

You can ask questions like :

  • What country would I like to visit this year?
  • What new culture would i like to learn about?
  • How many flights do i want to take?

and write goals like :

  • Visit a waterpark this year
  • Stay a hotel with a hot tub in the room
  • Fly first class for the first time

How can you accomplish these goals?

Create an action plan , whether it’s a savings plan  or a simple when to go calendar. If you tell yourself when you would like to go roughly , then you can figure out how long it will take you to raise the funds to go. If money is not a factor, simply organise your time and schedule.

Prepare the board

Go Big or GO HOME as they say. Try making your board on something big. You can simply use a bulletin board and pin things to it , or you could purchase an A2  poster board and use that . If its big , you wont miss it when you come home everyday and think about sleeping. Instead of sleeping , get to work on your goals and visions!

Alternatively you can just put it somewhere you will se it everyday . For me, i’m big on using a personal planner. This is why I create several mini vision boards inside my personal planner. I open it everyday for school , work and blogging ideas. As I pass through the pages, I can’t miss my fold out vision boards!

Lets get creative

Travel agent books are the perfect place to grab inspiration. There are hotel destinations, places to go, see and do. I LOVE to cut out and stick my favourite destinations to my board. I’ll also use WHI or instagram as a source for inspiration and quotes. Magazines are also a great source of inspiration.

I simply print them out cut and stick. This is your chance to get super creative. Experiment and create fun layouts and designs that speak to you . I make mine interactive by adding little flaps and fold over pages . pick images that stand out , are bold and eye catching. I also use some of my DIY mini prints from past destinations i’ve been to. This will encourage me to want to re-live similar moments.

Pick your background paper – I like to use wrapping paper (GIFT WRAP) as its decent quality and has great patterns. Sticking many photos and things to the board will increase the thickness. By having a mood board in my planner, I need it to remain as thin as possible.

Flip the wrapping paper and place two – pages of your planner on the paper as an outline. Fold over one inch from the edge on one of the pages.
