National Vision Board Day

Observed annually on the second Saturday in January, National Vision Board Day is a holiday that encourages everyone to map out their goals by placing them on a vision board. Vision boards allow people to visualize their goals either for motivation, so they can actualize their dreams, or so they can plot a course in a particular direction. Regardless of your motivation for using a vision board, this holiday is the perfect day to get it started.

The History Of National Vision Board Day

The Benefits Of Using A Vision Board

According to psychologists, motivational coaches, and even some celebrities, using a vision board can convey some real-world benefits to you. To show you what benefits these your potential vision board might offer you, we’ve listed some of the ones that we’ve learned about during the course of our research.

It’s Motivational

One of the prime reasons people use vision boards is because it helps them to visualize a goal and this, in turn, can help motivate them towards that goal. A good motivational vision board will have themes, feelings, and emotions that will make a person want to pursue their goal.

It Can Provide Serenity

Another reason to have one of these boards is to provide calming images for yourself. Images that help you de-stress after a hectic day. And some studies have shown that just having a motivational board can actually help to calm a person down when they’re stressed.

It Can Provide A Roadmap To Where You’re Going

Another thing that a vision board can do is to provide a person with a roadmap towards their success. By adding the first step to the board and then the next step after that to the board, you’re basically building your own map towards success – which will make it easier to tackle your goals.

It Can Keep You Focused

Having a vision board can be a good way to keep yourself on track. Day-to-day life can be extremely hectic and can push us off course over time. By being able to look at your vision board every day, you can keep yourself on track towards your eventual prize.

Observing National Vision Board Day

The most obvious way to observe this holiday is by making a vision board for your own personal needs. This board can be used for outlining a particular goal, placing a picture of your dream to try to will it into existence, or simply images and/or words that motivate you. You can also set up a vision board party for family, friends, or the people you work with. And finally, you can share last year’s vision board with the world by taking a picture of it and posting it on social media using the hashtag #NationalVisionBoardDay.
