Vision boards are collages that serve as a visual representation of the goals one hopes to realize in the new year.

They are often considered a form of manifestation, with some viewing it as a powerful ritual that one should sit with and focus on throughout the year.

From career aspirations to dream vacations, these boards can help you visualize all that you hope to achieve.

The boards typically include a curated collage of photos depicting one's goals and inspiring quotes to cultivate an overall lifestyle that will promote growth in 2023.

Some vision boards by content creators even include screenshots of ideal follower counts or other accolades they hope to reach.

To start planning your vision board, create a clear list of realistic goals to serve as a foundation and go from there!

Thanks to today's tech-savvy world, it's easier than ever to create aesthetically pleasing vision boards.

If you prefer to go the handmade route, pick up a plain poster board at your local arts and crafts shop to get started. These stores also have great options for decorative elements, including accent stickers or textured backgrounds.

On the digital side of things, design sites like Canva offer free templates for creating your board.

The next step involves finding photos. For physical boards, magazines can help cut out the printing problem and provide an array of gorgeous photos to use on your board.

Pinterest is your best friend when it comes to finding the perfect inspirational photos and quotes for your board. The site allows you to create separate albums, making it even easier to sort out your different goals.

If you're going the physical route, try printing the photos on glossy paper for an extra impressive effect.

Good luck manifesting!
