How To Make A Digital Vision Board
Some call it a vision board, others a motivation board, all in all, they both have the same meaning. A vision/motivation board is a place where you comprise images, quotes, scriptures, or any other motivating elements that captivate the vision you have for yourself. A digital vision board is a collection of images and texts that you can take with you anywhere you go. It also takes less time to create than a physical vision board.
Vision boards have always fascinated me. The only problem is that I’m too lazy to make a physical one. Getting pictures from old magazines, cutting them up and sticking them on A4 boards has always felt like a lot of work. Well, at least for me. I came across a digital one on Pinterest and immediately decided to learn how to make one. It actually turned out to be super easy than I expected.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the steps that you’re going to take in order to come up with the perfect digital vision board.
Figure Out What You Want To Manifest.
The initial step is to ask yourself what you want to invite into your life, and once you’re sure of what you want the board to be about, you can begin thinking about what will go on it. I, for instance, wanted my vision board to entail financial growth, intentional friendships among other things
Choose An App/Website.
The vision board I saw on Pinterest was made on Canva so I decided to use the same for mine. It’s easy to use and has a variety of board layouts.
Find Content For The Board.
You will pull images and words from the Internet and assemble them digitally. Choose images and quotes that align with your vision. You can also add text with different fonts to make it artsier.
Arrange The Board.
Once you’ve gathered all the content on your desktop, start arranging the board. The trick is to take your time and have fun while at it. The process of making the vision board will help you to plan your goals and intentions in your head and send them out to the universe. Once you’re done, download it and set it as your phone wallpaper or computer background.
Remember, however small, please ensure that you do something every day that will push you towards the goals you’ve put on your board.
That’s all folks!
