The Power of Positive Visualization

Hello Gardeners! Something our author Shanna has always told her kids is


"no dream is too big or too small".


Sometimes when we visualize our goals, we strive to achieve them just a little bit more. With #GardenerAnna and #GardenerAidan, Shanna uses vision boards. She asks them questions like "what do you want to be when you grow up?", "what are your goals for this year?", "who do you look up to?". They pick out photos of the various goals and images, then Shanna uses a photo collage app (like Pic Stitch) and prints out a collage of 6-10 photos. She hangs the collages above the gardeners' beds, but any high traffic area will suffice - refrigerator, bulletin board, kids room.


Here are a couple of Gardener Anna and Gardener Aidan's vision boards:





Vision boards are effective because they force us to take a second to reflect on what we want, what our goals are, what kind of people we strive to be. Something as simple as picking out photos that remind you of those goals, can actually help you achieve them.


This is a great activity to do as a family, so give it a try and continue to make new ones as you achieve old goals and strive for new ones!


Send us your vision boards - we would love to learn a little about who you are and what you strive to do! Email flowers@youareagardener.com or tag @youareagardener. Remember, #TheFutureIsBright!
