Let’s dive into the Top 11 Ideas for Vision Boards
When creating a vision board, there are a few ways you can tackle it.
You can look at creating a vision board for the year,
You can create a vision board for a few years (more like ‘a bigger life picture’ vision board)
or for very specific goals in a specific area of your life (think wedding, physical health, career, school)
So for me personally, I actually always have two vision boards on the go.
- For my yearly vision board
- For my longer term - “Life Vision Board”
My “Life Vision Board” usually is in about a 3-5 year timeframe, whereas my yearly vision board is about the year ahead and the goals I am trying to achieve to get me steps closer to my longer term life vision goal - if that makes sense.
This is what works for me.
But honestly you can do whatever you want!
So today, I wanted to share with you some vision board ideas, which photos and links

11 Ideas for Vision Boards
Vision Board Idea #1 - Vision Board for the Year Ahead
This is the standard type of vision board that you will often see. It usually focuses on multiple areas of your life and what you want to accomplish for the year ahead. It is a great addition to creating intentions for the year - which is the new way to set new year resolutions (without the guilt i must add!).
My process is to sit down usually in early December and create my intentions for the year and then create my yearly vision board off that.
Here are a few of my yearly vision boards from the past.
Vision Board Idea #2 - A Life Vision Board
a Vision board for Overall Life Vision (5,10,20 year visions) - This is one of my favorite vision boards to create as it allows me to dream big and create that “North Star” for my life. If you don’t already, then I highly encourage you to learn more about Intentional Living and how you can embrace this lifestyle. I have a completely Intentional living 101 guide you can read here.
When I create my “Life Vision Board” I usually look at 3-5 or 5-7 years down the road…
I figure out how to create my Life Vision by sitting down and taking the time to define my life vision. If you do not have a life vision and need some help - check out my workbook here.
Here are a few examples of my life vision boards

Vision Board Idea #3: Vision Board for Couples
How fun is this? Are you in a committed serious relationship? Why don’t you spend some time digging deep into what you want as a couple - what does your life look like? What do you want it to look like in 3-5 years. This is a great activity for couples to grow closer together, to see if they are on the same page on where they want life to go and to tap into each other's dreams. I love hearing what my hubby wants in a few years. He has this project car that has been put on hold since our Girls were born… It always makes me smile listening to him talk about how he wants to finish his car and how important it is to him. Even though I may not always understand why he loves his car so much, the fact that it brings him so much happiness and it is that important to him that he would want it on a vision board, reminds me to foster his passions and respect them like he does to mine.
A couples vision board is also a great way to ensure you are on similar paths, although smaller goals may be different (ie - he wants his car finished + and I want a new car) it ensure the bigger goals are the same (debt-free, mortgage paid down by an additional xx amount, have xx kids, travel, etc)

Vision Board Idea #6 - Vision Board for College/ University / Higher Education
Are you hoping to pursue higher education? Do you have a passion for learning. Is the next step on your life vision path to get further education? Maybe to take some courses online, to go to College or university or complete a specialization.
Then make a vision board for it. When I was struggling to complete my degree, I made sure to put my degree on my vision board. I went on the university’s website, got their logo and created a diploma with my name on it… and stuck it on my vision board as a reminder to stop quitting on myself and finish my degree.
Then later in life, when I was wanting to join an online business course that was way over my budget, I also put that on my vision board.
If you have a specific course you want to take or university to go to, get on their website, get their logos and put it on your board In addition get inspiring images like the one in this package

Our mental and emotional health is of utmost importance. Learning how to manage your day to day emotions, your stressors, triggers and mental health. By creating a vision board focused on your overall all emotional wellness it allows you to remind yourself how important your mental health is.
Choose pictures that represent a healthy mind - what are some things you can do for your emotional wellness? Getting out in nature? Going to see a counsellor? Finding your passions, engaging in a self care routine, embracing an intentional lifestyle?

Vision Board Idea #9 - Vision Board for Physical Health
Lots of times you will hear a vision board for weight loss or thinspiration. Coming from someone who battled with an eating disorder for the majority of my teenage/early 20’s years, I am not going to lie, I am not a huge fan of “weight-loss” of “thinspiration” vision boards. Instead, if you are focusing on your physical health, I encourage you to create this board from a positive space, not a comparison place.
Make it about being physically healthy, strong, flexible, powerful, feminine/masculine, Divinely and vivaciously You!
I no longer put pictures of “ideal” bodies on my vision board (not going to lie, however definitely did this in the past), but since realizing it was not helpful to me achieving my goals, I shifted to images that represented the words above. Images connected to my divine feminine, my strength as a woman and as a mother. And the intentions I have to spend more time moving my body, being in my body, and strengthening my body so I am healthier and happy and better able to be physically there for my family.

Vision Board Idea #10 - Vision Board for Self-Love + Confidence
Maybe this year, it is the year of you. You are ready to dig deep, do the inner work and shut up those self limiting beliefs for good (or at least learn better strategies to overcome them!). There is no shame in wanting to focus on you.
In fact, your future self is thank you. Creating a vision board solely focused on self-love and confidence is an amazing way to help you reconnect with that beautiful inner being that is you and start embracing all of your wonderfulness.
We are all our worst critics… and many times we are down right mean to ourselves. By creating a self love vision board, you can stay focused on your goal of letting go of the shit that is holding you back, embracing your beautiful spirit and creating the life you love.

Vision Board Idea #11 - Vision Board for Travel
Is adventure on the horizon? Is your passport burning a hole in your purse? Are you ready to leave the known behind and embark on an adventure filled next chapter? Then why not create a travel vision board to keep you inspired when you are working those extra hours to pay for your trip or forgoing your morning starbucks to save that $10 so you can support the local artisan in whatever country you are going to (all the while scoring some epic stories and home decor!)
This is by far one of the more popular vision boards to create - because let’s be honest - who doesn't love immersing themselves in a new culture, sitting by a poolside sipping on margaritas or going on some epic camping experiences with friends.
