A Vision board is a tool you can use to create positive changes in many areas of your life. And of course, to manifest your BIG dreams. Done right, your dream board serves as the focal point of an intentional life. And Visualize your dreams on your vision board helps to bridge the gap between your goals and your best life. Want to know more reasons why you should start a vision board?

There are numerous reasons to start a vision board when you want to manifest your dream life. My vision board helped me to manifest my dream husband, wedding, honeymoon, house, career, business… And so much more.

I helped thousands of readers and clients to make their vision boards come true. It is a topic I love so much that I wrote this very in-depth vision board guide here that you should check out next.

Here are my top reasons to make a vision board today.

Start a Vision Board to Clear Your Mind

Creating a vision board requires an investment of your time. The pause from your usual pace of busyness will allow you to really discover what is a priority to you and what isn’t.

You will reassess where you are placing your time, energy, and other resources and then buckle down for the changes you want to see.

And let me tell you, love, with a clear mind, it is so much easier to focus o what you want and actually get it.

It Helps You to Create Tangible Goals

Getting goals from your subconscious and into measurable steps will do wonders for helping you gain momentum in your life.

Having a visual ‘to do’ list, as in your vision board, will empower you to take your good intentions and turn them into opportunities you can touch.

Make a Vision Board to Visualize Your Goals Often

Having a visual reminder of your goals will act as a daily reminder to choose the life you want to live.

So another advantage of having a vision board is that you have your goals all in one place. A place that you (hopefully) often see throughout the day.

The right placement of your vision board is key.

Perhaps you could place it above your kitchen sink or near your dresser. Important is that you see beyond the pretty pictures of your dream board and visualize yourself succeeding in and even exceeding your goals.

It Can Help You to Become More Disciplined

There is great power in having your goals out and in the open. It requires a certain level of vulnerability to even admit to ourselves what it is that we really want.

In order to move ahead and start manifesting your dreams, you must often change your patterns and habits. Because only then will you be able to take action.

And your vision board is the perfect place to always keep you going.

A Vision Board Can Lead You to a Healthier Lifestyle

Your vision board doesn’t have to include any fitness challenges for it to ultimately lead to a healthier lifestyle.

When you adopt one good habit or move one step in the right direction of leading the life you want to experience, other positive changes follow.

For example, if you’re happier knowing that you’re working toward your dream job then you will sleep better. Getting a better night’s sleep will heavily influence your ability to focus on mindfulness and positivity.

It Will Help You to Practice Gratitude More Often

Gratitude is the healthiest emotion we can experience.

When you are intentional about using your vision board as a tool to manifest the life you want, then you’re automatically choosing gratitude for the process.

The encouragement of knowing you are taking actionable steps to your best life will cause a ripple effect of gratitude. You won’t resent the process of change but will embrace all that there is to be thankful for.

Extra tip: You can also put little notes of gratitude on your vision board, or check this post here, 6 alternatives to creating a vision board, where I explain how you can create a gratitude board, instead of a vision board.

Your Vision Board Is Perfect For Accountability

Once you have created your vision board, you may want to share it with some friends or your family. Don’t we all love to show off from time to time?

Sharing goals with someone that is trustworthy acts as a huge motivation. Knowing that you aren’t in your journey alone will help you to remain focused and motivated.

Extra tip: maybe you want to skyrocket this benefit by host a vision board party?

It Helps to Recognize Unhealthy Patterns

Part of laying your desires out on a vision board and implementing the steps that you need to succeed will also reveal areas that need to be improved.

Maybe your goal is to finally take your physical health seriously, and you map out an action plan to get there. You may notice quite quickly the bad habits that try to get in your way.

Maybe self-sabotage is popping up to get you off track. Perhaps staying up late is a habit that is causing you to not feel well the next day.

Recognizing these patterns should actually be encouraging! Now, you can instill great efforts to push through them.

Reason to Start a Vision Board: It Helps You to Prioritize Mental Health

One area of our lives that is often overlooked is our mental health. This is ironically the area of your life that needs a lot of care and regular nurturing if you intend to live out the wonderful goals on your vision board.

Try putting mental health-related material on your vision board–words of affirmation, reminders for self-care, or specific mental health goals that you have.

A Vision Board Can Help You to Tap Into Your Creativity

Many of us probably heard something similar to this when we were in primary school “There’s no wrong way to do art.”

The same applies to your vision board. The one that you create is uniquely yours and sole representative of the life that you want to live.

Creating a vision board is the perfect exercise to remind you that now is not the time for comparison and feeling that you aren’t good enough. Be creative and feel free as you create and envision the life before you.

It Makes You Resist Complacency

Your vision board is a tool to help you dodge the complacency plague. Whenever you feel that your dreams don’t matter or you get into a lull of everyday busyness, stop and look at your vision board.

It’s time to keep going, lovely. Tack nuggets of inspiration in place on your vision board to help cheer you on.

It Works As a Repetitive Reminders For Your Goals

Do you remember when you listed your goals out on your vision board?

Here’s where those come in. This is also why your vision board is in a high traffic area in your home. We all need constant reminders of why we are doing what we’re doing.

It’s easy to forget what our priorities are when we are overwhelmed. Keep looking at your vision board until you memorize it. Take photos of it and upload them as your wallpaper on your mobile. These reminders will help you to keep going.

That’s also the reason why vision boards are so powerful for manifestation. They work as a constant reminder for your subconscious mind, where it should ultimately get you in life.

A Vision Board Helps You to Keep Up the Momentum

It isn’t hard to set goals. Keeping the momentum up is what becomes a challenge.

The fact that you have your goals in a visible place and have taken the time to meditate on the creation of them is a huge step in the right direction.

We all lose momentum–it’s a natural part of going for something that’s important to us. It’s time to keep going, lovely.
