Let’s talk vision boards. Yes, those colorful, cluttered, and sometimes chaotic collages that your artsy friend swears by. You might be thinking, "Isn't that just adult arts and crafts?" Well, sort of. But if adulting means turning dreams into reality with a bit of glue and some old magazines, count us in!
What's a Vision Board, and Why Should I Care?
In the era of digital everything, vision boards are a tactile and tangible (read: refreshingly old-school) way of mapping out your wildest dreams and ambitions. Think of it as your life's Pinterest board, but without the distraction of endless cake recipes and DIY hacks.
Vision boards are a visual representation of what you want to achieve – be it a career goal, a dream vacation, or, let’s be honest, a dreamy date night with a future soul mate (hey, no judgment here!).
Why They Work
Now, before you roll your eyes and dismiss this as another new-age fad, consider this: the mind loves images. By transforming your goals into visual cues, you’re essentially giving your brain a roadmap to success. Every time you glance at that board, you’re reinforcing your intentions and subconsciously pushing yourself towards them.
And if nothing else, who doesn’t love a good craft session with a side of ambition?
Gather Supplies: You'll need a board (cork, poster, or whatever floats your boat), scissors, magazines, printouts, and adhesive. Glitter is optional but highly recommended (because, it’s glitter).
Set the Mood: Light some candles, play your favorite tunes, and maybe even pour yourself a cheeky glass of wine. This isn’t just crafting; it’s manifesting!
Dream Big, Cut Bigger: Think about what you want. Now, find images, words, or quotes that resonate with those dreams. No dream is too big or too silly.
Arrange & Stick: Lay out your cutouts on your board. Overlap, rearrange, play with it. Once you're happy with the chaotic masterpiece, glue it all down.
Place in Prime Real Estate: Put your vision board somewhere you’ll see it daily. Above your desk, next to your mirror, or even as the centerpiece in your living room (because, why not?). Also consider having it as your screensaver on your phone or computer.
Vision boards might not be everyone's cup of tea but it's about taking the time to hone in on what you want and making it as visible as that glitter on your craft table. So, grab your supplies, channel your inner manifestation superhero, and get crafting! Your dreams are just a snip and stick away.
With Love and Gratitude,
