We've talked about The Power of Positive Visualization on the blog before - #VisionBoards help us visualize our goals, which makes us strive to achieve them just a little bit more. On the blog today, we are going to look at the benefits of creating vision boards and the benefits of sharing them with the ones you love!
In their simplest form, vision boards are collages - images made up of other images - and when you hand select images that force some sort of positive response from you or represent something that is valuable to you, they hold space in our minds. In other words, when we attribute an image to a goal or a value, it remains clear and focused in our minds.
Take a look at some of these awesome vision boards by @the_crunchyclassroomteacher and @maryhamermusic.
The #SEL benefits of creating vision boards include, but are not limited to:
1. Increasing self-awareness in understanding one's emotions & values
2. Improving self-management in having the ability to set high goals and overcome obstacles
3. Fostering confidence in one's ability to complete tasks and accomplish goals
And the benefits don't stop there! Once you've made a vision board, you then have the opportunity to share it with your loved ones. By sharing your aspirations, emotions, motivations, and values - you open yourself up to those around you. This allows your loved ones insight into your life and lets them know what you are striving to do!
So go for it! Before you get rid of those old magazines, go through and find bits of beauty, inspiring text, or motivating images, grab some glue and scissors - and create vision boards with the whole family!
