One of the best things about going back to school is decorating your dorm! Your room is the place where you will truly be able to express yourself and feel comfortable. What better way to express yourself than with a vision board!
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a collage of pictures, phrases, words or items that represent you and your goals. Vision boards are for inspiration; think of it as a vision of the future if you will. These goals can be either short-term or long-term. By seeing these images on a daily basis, you will keep the motivation to reach those goals and desires.
How to make your own
Start off with making a list of things you would like to accomplish and see during the semester. Do you want to beat the freshman 15? Try getting clips from fitness magazines and inspirational quotes to keep you going. What about breaking out of your shell to approach that cutie you met during orientation? Try posting some pictures that display confidence and inner beauty.
Not sure what else you might have on a vision board? Running a marathon or beating your usual running record are both great fitness goals. If you’re hoping to grow socially, maybe you’ll want to emulate Mila Kunis’ sassy and confident personality or join new campus organizations. Vision boards are perfect for new beginnings, such as the college journey for freshmen! Your options are endless, as long as you think about what you truly want in life.
After jotting down some hopes and dreams, the materials to use are:
1. Poster board
5. A creative imagination!
Next, you start cutting out clippings in magazines that represent your vision. Then you arrange and glue these clippings in whatever order your heart desires. You can even group them into themes such as social life, health and academics.Keep in mind that vision boards, along with your desires and goals, may change over time. Why just have one vision when you can have two (or even more)!
