In a competitive and stressful world like today’s, vision boards help you calm your thoughts,  find a way to visualise your aims, focus on your energy and channelise it in a better way. Nothing is better than a clear mind and that is exactly what vision board and vision board apps are for. While it may seem that making a vision board is complex, it’s actually easier than you think.

Here is a little guide to help you make your own vision board :

Decide on the purpose

Although the prime purpose of a Vision board is to give you a visual of your ambitions, it is not limited to that only. You can create a vision board for anything you want. So decide on what exactly you want your vision board to help you with and design your board accordingly. You can use it to reinforce positive thoughts, or to collect good memories or anything that inspires you or even dedicate one for a medium term goal like scoring admission in a deemed university or landing a particular job.

Try A Vision Board App 

If you do not feel like or have enough time to put in too much effort in creating a vision board, try a vision board app. It’ll help you create a vision board online and you can update or change it according to yourself on your digital device. Even if you do decide to make one for yourself, trying an app first will help you get an idea of how it works and you will get a hang of using it. The apps are very easy to operate and come with multiple options of patterns and add ons like pictures, quotes, and even sounds.

Find The Perfect Spot

After you’ve decided to make a vision board yourself and are clear on what you want from it, the next question to ponder on is where to keep it. A perfect spot for a vision board would be where you can see it without making efforts. It should be visible from even the corners of the room or space where you spend most of your time. If it is placed somewhere you have to specially go just to see it, half of its purpose is defeated.

Gather Your Inspiration

No matter what purpose you choose for your vision board, its prime function still remains inspiring you. So try putting up things that motivate you. This can mean anything. You can add pictures, poetry, art, quotes or just simply your goal. Whatever works for you can be added to your vision board. If you’re using any vision board app, you can also add sounds to your board. What it means is you can even add your own voice or even songs or music or any sound that pumps you up to your board.

Once you are done with the above steps, you are halfway through creating your vision board. All that’s left is putting up these things together on a board and placing it on your decided spot. Even the process of making a vision board, app or real one,  makes you dig into your thoughts and arrange them helping you tidy up some mental space and organise your thoughts which are the quintessentials for channeling your energy and skills towards the right path.
