What are Vision Boards?
Vision boards are collections of different images, quotes, graphics and goals collected on one board, with the idea of using this board for your daily visualisation and as an everyday reminder of your goal.
There’s no one perfect way to craft a vision board and yours will be always unique to you and the goals you’re trying to achieve.
Each goal on the vision board is represented by a visual cue, and can be grouped together with other goals. You can have also dedicated vision boards for your business, your health, your mental health and so on… the possibilities are endless.
Vision boards are not just for goals but also for encouraging words that will keep you motivated for the whole year. If you have a quote that strongly resonates with you, it should be definitely on your vision board.
And that brings us to…
Why Should You Make a Vision Board?
Visualisation are a powerful practice that can transform your life, but it’s not just wishful thinking as a lot of people presume. Visualisations help you align your mindset with your goals and if they’re done in the morning, they help you start the day with the right frame of mind to achieve everything you need.
Vision boards are a tool commonly used for visualisations, as a reference point to help you focus your mind on the vision you’re trying to create for your life.
If you feel like your goals and focus is all over the place, creating a clear goal structure – that means written goals – along with vision board is the right way to get back on track.
What to Include: Vision Board Ideas
Your vision board can consist of a several different things, depending on what works best for you and how did you define your goals.
Here are a few vision board ideas for items to include:
- Printables – you can get custom designed printables specifically for vision boards (just like the ones we linked below), and they come in all sizes, colors and styles – from goal planners, quotes to goal trackers.

How to Style Your Vision Board
Some people prefer to have a signature style for their vision board, such as monochrome graphics and perfectly aligned images, others like it to look more scattered and multi-colored.
There is no right or wrong way to style your vision board, you just need to make sure that the visual presentation appeals to you and reflects the colors that invoke posivite feelings.
Play with the layout and color options until you find something that’s aesthetically pleasing but also speaks to you personally.
Where to Display Vision Board
Vision board should be displayed somewhere you spend a lot of time and can see it every day.
Ideally, if you have a home office, it can be placed on the wall in front of you or in the corner of your bedroom that you use for work.
If you don’t work from home, you can place it in your kitchen or bedroom, where it will serve as a reminder and each glance will encourage you to do something about your goals every day.
Your office desk at work or your place of work could be also great to display a mini version of your vision board. If that’s not possible, carry a photo of your vision board on your phone, or a printed photo in your diary, so you can refer to it anytime during the day.
