Create a body kindness vision board.
Here’s a perfect idea for an end of year reflection and goal setting. My first vision board was over a decade ago and it was useful in helping me focus, get and stay motivated, and remind myself about what really mattered to me (becoming an author was on there!)
Vision boards are wonderful at letting us dream about something we might not think is even possible and turn it into our reality (ditch dieting, overcome inner critic voice, become flexible with food, trust your body, be kind and gentle toward yourself, say no more, sleep more, spend time on a hobby. Etc!!!!)
Hopefully you can make time for vision boarding before or early on in 2017. It’s a great way to kick off New Years Resolutions into practical cultivation of your future.
My 3 step body kindness vision board.
- Spend 10 minutes (set a timer) coming up with as many ways you can complete this sentence “I want to be the kind of person who ________ (action). This is body kindness so your “blank” needs to at least be about being good to your body.
- Spend 30 minutes flipping through any magazines and cut out what speaks to you. Do not overthink it. (You could stop here and pick it back up another day for time, or continue on.)
- Spend 20 minutes placing what you found plus adding your own words from construction paper, favorite quotes, cards, or anywhere else (print things from online).
When you do this, expect fears to arise along with some excitement. Just keep cutting pasting and dreaming your way toward what you want. I found you can use the modern magazines but you’ll probably cut out a bunch of “don’t” (for don’t diet) and “no” (for no body bashing).
Here’s a social media shareable.
