This is a great example of a Vision Board that is simply filled with meaningful images. Enjoy this curated article from Primped by Yasemin Trollope.
Call you what you like – inspiration board, vision board, pictures you love – but the fact is, pinning and posting images that represent your ideal future and inspire you is a great way to get your head into the right space to keep you focused and driven. -Yasemin Trollope, Primped
Learning comes in three distinct ways: auditory (with your ears), visual (with your eyes) and kinaesthetic (by physically doing something) and an inspiration board is a wonderful, visual way of creating, learning and ‘seeing’ the life you want to live right in front of you.
Here’s how you go about creating one…
Step 1: Prep!
Gather all the practical necessities such as glue, a pin board, scissors, magazines and even postcards. It’s also nice to have tactile things on your board as well, so think glitter (magic dust?), textures, patterns and prints you like, as well as trinkets that take your eye.
Step 2: Plan!
Not sure what board you want to create? There are many different ways to go about it but the three most common are:
1. The Circle of Life Board: This is where you post images and tactile items that represent your past on the outside edge of your board, followed by images of your present next to that, and images that represent your future in the middle.
2. The Single Focus Dream Board: If you know that you’re meant to be with a tall, dark haired man with blue eyes and have three babies, then this is the board for you. The single focus dream board has one clear focus, be it your career, relationship, money or travel plans, for example. Simply find images and trinkets that represent this dream and create a board that gives you daily visual cues towards reaching that goal.
3. The ‘I’m Open’ Board: Another option is simply to piece together random images and tactile items that resonate with you. There may not be a common theme or a particular dream involved, rather an orchestra of great things that make you feel good when you look at them.
Step 3: Piece Together!
Now that you have an idea of what board you want to create, it’s time to gather all your materials. Go through magazines, Pinterest and even old photos to find words, images and visual references of things that mean something to your life. Once you’ve done that, start piecing them together until you’re happy with the layout of your board.
Step 4: Perfect!
Now it’s time to glue or pin your items down and perfect your board so it’s a trigger of positivity for you. Hang it somewhere where you can see it everyday, for a constant source of positivity and inspiration.
