Vision boards – essentially a Pinterest-style collage to help manifest things, people, places and experiences you desire – are a helpful tool when it comes to achieving your goals. Just ask the super successful; everyone from life coach guru Tony Robins to megastar Beyoncé swears by them. Here’s everything you need to know about making your own…
Brainstorm Your Goals
Firstly, take some time to think about what you really want to achieve over the coming year – and don’t be afraid of being really specific. You may find it helpful to start by writing in a stream of consciousness style, then refine the final list by deciding what really stands out.
Include What’s Really Important
While no dream is too big for a vision board, it’s important to include the little things too – they’re what makes life worth living. Perhaps you’d like to spend more time with friends and family, start meditating more, or simply be more positive and mindful in your day-to-day life.
Now, it’s time to put everything together. When it comes to representing your goals on the vision board, you can use printed images (i.e. a particular holiday destination), single words, symbols or inspirational quotes. It helps to map our images first before sticking them down to ensure your board has a flow – but use the experience to get creative too; play with textures, colours and patterns to make it truly personal.
If you’re really stuck for ideas, try adding some Instagram prints from your travels or special occasions with your friends and family – having visual reminders of the good times can help you stay positive during stressful times. Or look to stationary site kikki.k – they have a whole range of vision board tools to get you started.

Having a visual reminder of the good times will help you stay positive and calm no matter how busy you get.
Find The Perfect Spot
You should place your vision board somewhere you’ll see it every day. Some people like to make their vision board small to keep it at work, others have it in a hallway so they’ll see it every time they walk in the door, or next to their bed so it’s the last thing they look at in the evening and the first thing in the morning. You could even use a photo of it as the wallpaper on your phone or desktop, so you’ll see it as often as possible – getting all those goals deep in your subconscious and on their way to fruition.
