How To Create An Inspiration Vision Board

Hello Lovelies. It's been a while since I've shared my obsession with vision boards. So I thought I would share a guest post I did on a friend's blog a while back. Some of the information is the same in both posts but the first post is more about how to create a vision board for setting goals and chasing dreams. This vision board is aimed more towards creating an inspiration vision board, Lately I need all the inspiration I can get so I thought this was a perfect time to re-visit this post and remind myself of my dreams, goals and what sets my soul on fire.

You can check out my post on How To Create A Vision Board here.

To me, vision boards are such a game changer because i'm a visual person so seeing my dreams, my goals, my plans come to life in pictures gives me such a sense of excitement. They're also therapeutic for me because I can get things out of my head and on to a canvas that I can look at time and time again. So I thought i'd bring my passions of inspiring others and vision boards together for a fun guide to creating your own inspiration vision board.



*All the pics I've used in this collage are my own.*


How To Create An Inspiration Vision Board



1. Get Inspired

I'm sure this seems pretty obvious but truth is sometimes inspiration can be hard to come by so sit down and write out a list of things that inspire you. Scroll through Pinterest, take a walk outside, go to your favorite store and find things that inspire you then write them down in a pretty journal.



2. Visual Representation

This is where things get really fun because now you get to take your list of all the things that inspire you and put them into pictures. You can snap some of your own or save ones you like from Pinterest, Google, etc.

Have fun with this part because this is where you'll keep coming to when you need inspiration so make the pictures pretty and a true reflection of what you want them to represent. There's no wrong way to do this, just have fun with it and follow your heart.



3. Learning How To Use Your Board

For some people just making the board is enough but the purpose of the board is for it to inspire you so just remember to pull it out and look at it every once in a while. I like to set a reminder in my phone at the beginning of every month to look at my board. Of course, it's always a good idea to look at it when you're un-inspired.



4. Make It Part Of Your Everyday

As a blogger, it's easy to let a post slip away into the archives of my blog so this part is especially important to me. I like to keep my vision boards easily accessible by taking a picture of it and using it as the background on my phone. You could also print the pictures out and put them in a cute basket on your coffee table or cut them out and use them in your day planner. You could even tape them to the bathroom mirror or hang them on the side of the refrigerator. Anything to keep them visible so you stay inspired.


Well friends, I hope you enjoyed this post and I truly hope you take the time to make your own Inspiration Vision Board. I promise, this will be such a fun project and you'll love the happiness it brings to put together such a fun board that you'll find yourself dreaming of other things to make vision boards on.

I would love to see your vision boards so share them with me on:

    1. Hi Rosalyn. Thank you for your comment. I think that's the hardest part; looking at it everyday. That's why I love the idea of printing the pics out and keeping them on your coffee table or something along those lines. It really helps to keep your goals where you can see them.
