With the new year fast approaching, I can think of no better way to start off my new blog than with a post that looks towards the possibilities of 2016. For me, 2016 represents the continued growth of my Holistic Health Coach practice. It’s an exciting time and I want help manifest the dreams that I have for working with women to achieve their best health and wellness.
A vision board is a wonderful way to visually represent what you would like the coming year to look like. I truly believe in the Law of Attraction and choosing positive thoughts to create the life you want. If you haven’t created a vision board yourself, it’s really quite simple (the image above is a portion of the one I created on Tuesday). All you need are the following supplies:
- Poster board
- A pile of magazines: I like a wide variety. For my board I had HGTV magazine, Whole Living, Martha Stewart Living, Women’s Health and a bunch of food magazines.
- Colored markers, paint, embellishments
- Glue: Rubber cement or a glue stick
Before you begin, sit quietly for a few moments and think about what you would like this board to represent. Relationships? Career? Health? Spirituality? All of the above? Next, set up all your supplies on a large surface like the dining room table or on a comfortable spot on the floor. You may even want to put on some soft music in the background. Now you are ready to begin!
Step One: Go through the magazines and start cutting out images or quotes that speak to you. Don’t over think this process…just let it flow naturally. You can always pick and choose which items you want to use after.
Step Two: Once you have all your images, lay out the poster board and begin placing the images on the board. Do not glue them yet. This step is just to see where you want everything to go. If you find that something you cut out doesn’t resonate with you, don’t use it. This is the time to really think about what you want the board to represent.
Step Three: Once you have your layout, glue the images down to the board.
Step Four: Add any finishing touches with colorful markers, paint and embellishments.
It’s as easy as that! I like to place the poster in a place that I will see it daily (mine is by my desk). Your vision board is a reminder of all the possibilities of the future and helps you to manifest what you want. I hope you will take the time to create a vision board of your own. I enjoy this process every year and I think you will too!
