The new year is a time when many people resolve to make positive changes. The challenge facing resolution makers is how to keep January’s good intentions from petering out by spring—or even sooner.
Creating a personal vision board may be the crafty solution to achieving your 2020 goals. A vision board only takes a few hours to make and can support your aspirations all year long!
Start with a poster, cork or foam core board in a size that can easily be displayed somewhere in your home. Think of your goal and how you can achieve it. For example, connecting with friends, attending more live performances or growing an herb garden are all objectives that may be featured on a vision board.
With your personal goal in mind, collect photos, magazine pictures, images printed from a computer, quotes, sayings and stickers to decorate your vision board. It doesn’t have to be an artistic masterpiece, but simply a collage that reflects your dreams and wishes. The finished board should help makers envision their goals, inspire action and keep the goals top-of-mind.
A bit of room could be left on the board to add images and trinkets throughout the year that show progress toward your goal, such as a photo of dinner out with friend, a playbill from a show or a sprig of rosemary.
Vision boards can work for people of all ages. In fact, it’s a perfect family project that’s sure to encourage good conversation. When discussing personal goals for the new year, parents, children and grandparents learn what’s important in each of their lives and find fun and creative ways to help each other make their visions a reality.
Get cutting and pasting to create your own vision board for a picture perfect 2020, or at least an improved you in the new year.
