Vision boards, also sometimes called dream or manifestation boards, treasure maps, or life collages, are a fun and creative way for couples to get clear on their goals and have a visual reminder of these goals. Plus, it’s just plain fun to get messy, and dream together with a fun DIY.
Why Create a Vision Board as a Couple?
A vision board is a collage of images, words, and phrases that represents your goals and aspirations. It can be a helpful tool for couples to dream, visualize and plan for their future together. Creating it together will encourage you to talk it through, and iron out the details together - so you can reflect all year on your shared dreams.
There are no hard and fast files, but here are some easy steps you can follow to create a vision board as a couple:
Identify your goals and aspirations: Start by brainstorming what you want to achieve as a couple. These could be short-term goals, such as saving for a down payment on a house, or long-term goals, such as traveling the world.
Gather materials: You'll need a large piece of poster board or foam board, scissors, glue, and a variety of magazines, newspapers, and other print materials that you can cut up and use to create your vision board.
Cut out images and words: Look through your materials and cut out images and words that represent your goals and aspirations. You can also include quotes or affirmations that inspire you as a couple.
Arrange and glue: Once you have a selection of images and words, start arranging them on your board. Use glue to attach them securely. You can create a cohesive theme or just have fun arranging the items in a way that feels meaningful to you.
Display your vision board: Hang your vision board in a place where you'll see it often, such as in your bedroom or home office. This will help you stay motivated and focused on your goals as a couple.
Remember, a vision board is a personal and individualized tool, so there's no one "right" way to create one. The important thing is that it reflects your goals and aspirations as a couple and helps you stay motivated and focused on what you want to achieve together.
