Do you ever wish you could see your dream, that you could feel it before you and imagine exactly what it feels like to achieve it?
A dream board can be an excellent way to find motivation and inspiration as you pursue a goal or dream throughout your days. Dream boards are like little collages of things that inspire you, it can be full of quotes or pictures, they can be from magazines, printed off of the computer, or it can be filled with clippings of posters and books.
A dream board is simply a collection of things that inspire you to follow your dream, or show you what the results of your hard work might look like. Vision boards can have quotes or pictures of your hero’s, picture of things you want, or pictures of how you want your life to look, but the bottom line is that you want your vision board to be full of things that inspires you, so that you can spend just a few moments looking at it and be ready to go out and conquer the day.
How to make a dream board to motivate your fitness goals
A fitness dream board should include pictures of athletes or celebrities that you aspire to look like, so get pictures of people with great bodies that you aspire to achieve, add in pictures of the healthy foods that you will have to eat frequently and learn to enjoy in order to look like them.
You can include quotes from other people about fitness, or just motivational quotes in general to remind you of the task at hand and how difficult it may be to get there. You can put up before and after photos of other people you know, or write a letter to yourself from your future self thanking you for working so hard.
Try including a copy of your own goals that you can look at each time you look at your vision board, so that everytime you go there in search of inspiration, you will see your goals and the things that you need to do to get there- all written down in front of you.
There is really no right or wrong way to create a vision board, but you want to create something that helps you visualize what you want, what it will take to get it, and what it will look and feel like when you get it.
You can even try adding in words or phrases like: success, healthy weight, or I feel full- little words or phrases that will serve as mantras and will stick out in your mind. Over time your brain will associate those words with the dream that you have, and it also become like a little mantra that you can repeat to yourself every time that you look at your board.
What is a dream board made out of?
You can make a dream board out of a tack board, a cardboard sheet, a poster, a block of wood, or even just taped to a wall.
Where should I put my dreamboard?
Dreamboards work best for different people in different locations. Some people prefer their dream boards to be out in the open to show others what they are focused on so that they will hold them accountable, while other people like their dreamboards to be in a private location like a bedroom closet so that it is for only them to see.
There is no right or wrong location to place a dreamboard, but you want it to be somewhere that you can access easily- but not exactly somewhere that you will see it multiple times every single day, because seeing it too much can diminish its effects.
