With the year quickly ending, it’s the perfect time to start your 2022 vision board. I love vision boards because they help me to take all of my goals and to visualize them. Each year, beginning in November, I start thinking about what I want to bring into my life the following year. Then, I ask myself fundamental questions about my love, career, purpose, and life.
When I created my 2022 vision board, I thought about what I want and where I see myself in the foreseeable future. Then, I thought about what matters to me, my benchmarks, goals, and even moments or trips I want to experience next year. I then found images that portrayed these emotions, put them into a collage, and printed it.
Today, I am sharing my 2022 vision board and explaining my hopes, goals, and dreams that I want to manifest next year.
My 2022 Vision Board
Before creating my 2022 vision board, I thought about my color palette and what colors I wanted to represent in the selected images. Colors portray various emotions and can convey different meanings to an audience. For example, red typically refers to love, passion, excitement, and energy. In comparison, purple stands for nobility, royalty, and spirituality.
For my vision board, I went with the colors green, brown, gray, and white. These colors best represent the emotions, experiences, and moments I hope to convey and have in 2022.
Here are what the colors mean
Green: Health, nature, and the environment
Brown: Earth, stability, comfort, simplicity
Gray: Security, reliability, calmness
White: Peace, goodness, and purity
Did you notice a common theme in my vision board? If not, then I will tell you. My most common theme was stability. 2021 has been a year full of challenges and consistent change. While change is good and helps you grow as a person, I want a bit of stability in my life.
- Stable job
- Stable income
- Stable happiness
- Stable experiences
I feel like each of the things I want stability in were overshadowed by life circumstances like the pandemic, mental health decline, death, and even loss in income. I hope to change that in the next year.
After choosing the colors for my vision board, I went to work on putting together a collage that best expresses everything that I want to manifest in 2022. Below is an explanation of each image that I used for my vision board.
Both of the images above portray my biggest desire, which is to live a healthier lifestyle. The photo of the woman is the largest on my 2022 vision board because it’s the image that most represents my biggest goal. Admittedly, I’ve fallen back into some nasty habits during the pandemic, and I would like to break them and live a healthier life. For me, this starts with eating healthier and lowering my intake of junk and processed food.
I recently found some lovely green juice recipes that I would love to implement in the next year and plan to buy more fruits and veggies to add to my daily diet.
The following images represent how I plan to continue taking better care of my physical self through self-care and fitness. In July, I started my fitness journey when I first learned about various at-home workouts that I could benefit from. Unfortunately, I’m too nervous about going to the gym and watching a bunch of sweaty grown men grunts while doing overhead presses, so I prefer to work out where I am comfortable.
I recently brought this workout machine that has been working wonderfully for me. You can do most squats, barbell deadlifts, barbell lateral pulls, pushups, and more. I don’t remember where I bought it from, but I will share it with you when I do!
Next in my 2022 vision board, I have images about the type of home I went to in the future and the environment I want to create. In the next year, I hope my boyfriend and I can move into a lovely apartment that is cozy and comfortable for both of us. I want to surround us with many plants and flowers for our health and emotional wellness needs.
Next, I am going to focus on wealth and travel. In 2022, I want to start creating consistent wealth from my blog and Etsy. While I am happy to have made a few affiliates and advertising sales, I want to do more. I plan to create and add new products and start focusing on growing and scaling my blog into a full-blown business that I can live off of.
I also want to start traveling. It’s embarrassing, but I have never been outside of the United States. I have an entire list of countries I want to visit and a passport. So, next year, I’m making plans to travel solo, with my boyfriend, and with friends.
Next, I want to start encouraging myself and learning techniques for finding and maintaining motivation. In my 2022 vision board, I included this specific image because I live by this quote. Indeed, you can never truly begin living life until one has stepped out of their comfort zones, which is something I want to do in 2022.
In 2022, I want to focus more on my romantic relationship with my long-term boyfriend and continue growing as a couple. Not many people know this, but we’ve been through a lot together. Being stuck with him has shown me how to persevere in our relationship, and now we will grow stronger together.
Finally, I want to start meditating more. Meditation is such an essential aspect of health, and honestly, everyone should be doing it. It helps you to slow your mind down and learn how to focus on being present-minded.
How To Create A Vision Board
Creating a vision board is easy. All you need is some magazines, old books, photos, and things that represent your goals. You’ll want collage paper or an app to turn these images into collages that you can reference in the future. Then you play around with the different pictures, colors, and shapes until it matches your future vision. There are excellent references on Pinterest if you are ever looking for inspiration!
