How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions with an Online Vision Board

3, 2, 1… cue the ball drop!

Welcome to a new year and a new you. It’s that time to make positive changes, cut bad habits and use our time more meaningfully.

It’s no secret more than half of all new year’s resolutions fail. Yet, we’re pumped at the beginning and ready to start fresh! And as soon as normal life stressors kick back in, we forget all about those aspirations from January 1.

But not this year! A few simple solutions will put you on a path for lasting change and help you live your best life. This year, make your resolution successful with a few tips and a vision board.

How to Keep Your Resolutions Mindful and Meaningful

Know your goals and align them to your values.


It’s natural to follow what’s trending, but the trends may not make sense for us. Instead, make resolutions that encourage you and serve a larger purpose in your life. Take self-care for example – an hour of meditation sounds great but may not work with your busy schedule. Maybe self-care for you means organization to tackle tasks and be more available for your family. Ten minutes each day journaling and making your to-do list may better fit your schedule and needs.

Don’t bite off more than you can chew.


We have BIG dreams and BIG desires, so we tend to set lofty goals. Ambitious dreams are wonderful, as long as they’re also realistic. Set reasonable expectations and find ways to measure success. Also, be specific. Resolving to “get healthy” is vague and means different things to different people. Try setting specific goals, such as how often you want to exercise, how many servings of fruits and veggies you want to eat each week, or drinking a gallon of water every day.

Celebrate small achievements.


It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Consider the choices you make each day that add up to your end result. Is your goal to lose weight? It would be great if we woke up one morning 20 pounds lighter, but we all know that’s not how it works. Focusing only on the number on the scale can be intimidating and frustrating.

Instead, celebrate making the choice to go to the gym instead of sitting on the couch. Celebrate hitting your target water intake for the day, eating a healthier breakfast, or passing on dessert. Get excited about small wins along the way to your larger goal!

Bring your vision to life with a vision board.


You know the saying… out of sight, out of mind. A vision board gives you the opportunity to create visual representations of the things you want to achieve. It’s a way to manifest your dreams and desires. Keeping these things in view (literally) can motivate you toward reaching your goal. (Keep reading to see how you can create your own digital vision board!)

How to Make a Vision Board Online

Time to bring your vision to life! Your board, also called a mood board or action board, is customizable to your specific dreams and personal goals. Fill your board with a collection of images and inspirational quotes that represent your desires. And make it easy this year with a digital vision board!

Before getting started, take a few minutes to get organized:

1.
    Write down your values and the goals you want to accomplish.
2.     Consider the steps necessary to accomplish these goals.
3.     Make a list of words that describe your goals and values.
4.     Find photos and quotes that represent these items.

When you have these things, you are ready to create your vision!

There are wonderful online tools and mobile apps available to help you design your vision. Try Canva, PicMonkey, or Pinterest. Some have vision board templates already set up, so all you need to do is drag and drop your images and quotes.

Find a template, add your photos and videos, then spice it up with quotes and vibrant graphics or emojis. When you’re ready, download your vision and place it somewhere you will see it often. You can set it as wallpaper or a screensaver on your computer or print it out and put it in your home. Don’t forget to share it on social media and inspire your friends and family!

Another great thing about digital vision boards is the flexibility you have to adjust them. Life happens, and your priorities may shift throughout the year. Allow yourself grace in these moments and change your vision board as needed.

Happy New Year!
