If you haven't heard of a vision board, you are missing out on something that's not only super fun to make but also something that will help you to stay grounded and focused!
A vision board is a tool that you can use to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on specific life goals. A vision board is any sort of board or arrangement of images, quotes and visual ideas, that represents whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. Essentially keeping a vision board close by gives you laser focus when it comes to what you want to create in your life.

WHAT CAN YOU INCLUDE ON A VISION BOARD?
YOUR IDEAL OR DREAM | Dream house, car, office, wedding, man/woman, holiday. Ideal self, hair, skin, body, outfit.
MATERIAL WANTS AND NEEDS | The perfect wardrobe. The jewellery of your dreams. The designer handbag you lust over. The sunglasses you want to purchase. The tech - computer, phone or camera you want.
YOUR IDEAL BUSINESS/BLOG | What you want it to look like. The kind of business lifestyle you want. The way you want to feel about your business. The influencers in your industry: Who you want to be like and look up to. Who you want to connect/collaborate with. The income/sales you want to generate.
THE IDEAL MINDSET | How you want to feel. How you want to make other people feel. What words you’d like people to use to describe you. What quotes inspire you and what focus words keep you grounded.
MY VISION BOARD
In the video above, I share how I created my vision board and explain each of my decisions in detail. In essence though, I included images of my dream home and office, my dream wedding (since I am getting married next year), my ideal self including hair, style and body, my business goals, including my desire to write a book and start a podcast, and a few material luxuries that I want like a kindle, designer handbags and pretty luggage!
Vision boards should be filled with the ideal, the ultimate. Don't be afraid to dream big and be extravagant! It's ok! I created this as an A2 poster so that I can take it to my local print store and have them print and laminate it for me.
WHERE SHOULD YOU PUT A VISION BOARD?
Bedroom | I like the idea of putting your vision board in your bedroom so that it’s the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night. Seeing it as you wake up to start your day will instantly start you on the right foot and when you look at it before falling asleep it will remind you what all your hard work is for!
Office | I personally love to display my vision board in my office. And I recommend placing your vision board in your direct line of vision to remind you what you are working for! So this means every time you look up from your work you'll see the board and it will encourage you to keep going, keep working and will keep you focused on what you really want.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH YOUR VISION BOARD?
Look at your vision board regularly to remember what you are working towards.
I personally love to use my vision board for visualisation. Spend time imagining what it would be like for elements of your vision board to come true. Let the feelings wash over you and actually try to feel the emotions - be it excitement, thrill or nervousness.
Another great way to use your vision board is to pick an image or quote on your vision board and journal about how you’ll make it happen and what that feels like for you. Be as descriptive as possible, literally describe it happening to you and what that means to you. Then perhaps also strategies what you could do to make it happen!
