Vision Board

Way back when I first started on the road to getting healthy (2005) I joined an online forum that I am actually a co-host of today. It's a great place for women only and we offer each other support, comfort, ideas and the occasional booty kick when necessary.

One of the best ideas I found on there was called the Vision Board. You take pictures or words from the internet or magazines or wherever you can find them and glue them to a board. The board can be whatever size you want, but it must contain pictures/words that motivate you and encourage you to reach your goals.

Here's my vision board that I made. It sits in my office where I can see it every day.



On my board I have many different things as you can see. I have motivational quotes such as "Nothing is impossible" and "Keep Your Eye On The Prize". I have uplifting quotes such as "Triumph is just umph added to Try" and "Your Worth It". And I have pictures of somethings I work towards such as hubby and I want to back to the Bahamas again someday so I have pictures of white sandy beaches, and I also think it would be fun to take a trip to Vegas to renew our vows, so I have a picture of a Vegas sign.

It doesn't matter what you put on your board. Everyones is different. The most important part is that you put it where you see it every . single . day.

This works not only for weight loss, but just living a healthier lifestyle, business goals, and any goals you have in mind. Children can even make them. It's a great visual for those who are even too young to read. I've also heard of Sunday School and Bible School classes using them.

If you made a vision board, what would you put on it?
