Happy New Year! I’m Lisa’s daughter and I’m sharing this wonderful Printable Vision Board Kit with you. Every year, I make New Year’s Resolutions. Until recently, I would just write them in a list and then lose the list and never accomplish those goals because I couldn’t remember them. When my cute neighbor introduced me to the idea of vision boards at a youth activity, I was instantly hooked. Making a vision board made my goals so easy to remember, because the vision board was a cute visual representation of my New Year’s Resolutions. I hung up my vision board by my mirror so I could see it every day, and be reminded of my goals. I actually achieved my New Year’s Resolutions (well, most of them anyway!) So I created a printable vision board template to help you get started on your New Year’s goals. It comes with the vision board template, and 30 different goal ideas that you can put on your vision board. It’s perfect for kids, youth activities, New Year’s parties, family night activities, vision board parties, retirement homes, and school classes! The main vision board is FREE to print below. If you want the rest of the kit, you’ll need to check it out in our Etsy Shop.
How to Set Goals Using a Vision Board:
Now you’re probably wondering how to make those goals a reality with a vision board. One of the most important things is to think about how you want to improve through the coming year. My printable vision board comes with six different categories to help get you started. These categories are: Self Care, Talents, Just for Fun, Education, Relationships and Health. Once you have brainstormed some ideas for your goals, here’s 3 tips to help make your goals easier to attain.
- Make your goal specific! State what you want to accomplish and a the way you intend to accomplish it. For example, don’t just list you goal as “Exercise more often.” That goal is very general and this can make it easier to come up with excuses. A more specific goal might be “Go mountain biking”.
- Make your goal time sensitive. This means you need to explain how often you will work on this goal. And for goals that have an ending destination, you need to say when you will complete that goal. So now let’s improve our previous goal of “Go mountain biking” to be more time sensitive. “Go mountain biking 3 times a week for 2 hours” is a goal that makes you more accountable as to when you have to work on it.
- Involve others in your goals, or find a way to report them. It is much easier to accomplish something when you are surrounded by a support group that is working with you. Invite a friend or a family member to join you in your goals. Or you can report to a family member or keep a log to track your progress. This way you have people to encourage you or a way to view how you are doing. Editing our previous goal to involve others is as simple as changing it to “Go mountain biking with Tara 3 times a week for 2 hours.”
Once you’ve established your goals, you’re ready to start your vision board!
Start by cutting out little visuals to represent your goals to put on your main vision board (the free printable!) Our Vision Board Printable Kit comes with cute icons to decorate your vision board with all your goals! You can also use magazine cutouts or stickers to give yourself a visual representation of your New Year’s Resolutions.
Glue the cutouts onto your main vision board. You can choose to write your goals under or around the pictures to help you remember them. Then personalize your vision board however you’d like. Hang it up somewhere you will see it often. Good luck with all your New Year’s Resolutions!!!
