Vision Board Day is the first second Saturday in January
National Vision Board Day is designed to inspire you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. What better way to help you make your dreams a reality than to visually lay them out in a way that’s fun and exciting? In today’s busy world it can be so easy to get caught up in the daily grind that we often forget exactly what it is we are trying to achieve. Your vision board will be a daily reminder of that awesome future you want to have, therefore you will be inspired to do what it takes to reach them. A vision board, which people sometimes refer to as a mood board, is a visual representation of the goals you wish to achieve. These can be anything from places you wish to go, a state of mind you wish to, an ideal job, or things that you one day hope to possess.
National Vision Board Day was made official by Kellan Lutz and Ryan Daly in June 2015. It is celebrated annually on the second Saturday in January. The origin goes back even further though, to 2010 when it started out as groups of friends gathering together to dream their dreams out loud. They created the idea of making a visual representation of the goals they wanted to achieve on a board and hanging it on a wall. Having a daily reminder of what their goals were would ensure they would stay on the right track of making decisions to make those a reality.
Fun Ways to Celebrate
Host a vision board day party with your friends. Gather around and discuss goals you wish to achieve and offer guidance to your friends on ways they can reach their goals. Be an inspiration to each other and an accountability partner to ensure you are always keeping the end goal in sight. Make it a group activity by having supplies like magazine clippings and stickers and make them together. Help to inspire others by posting your vision board on social media for others to see.
How this Holiday Unites People
Everyone has a dream. There’s not a single person out there that does not envision a better future for themselves. This holiday can help break down those barriers of competition and comparison by allowing people to work together and share their ideas and dreams. By sharing your dreams, you may realize someone has the same goals as you and you can work together to make them a reality. Or you may have the means to be able to help someone else reach their goal. We all have our own individual talents and network, and by working together anything is possible.
