Pinterest Vision Boards: Quick, Fun, and Effective

Updated January 01, 2013

There are many benefits to creating a vision board. These benefits include increased ability to set goals, a greater motivation to attain these goals, and an enjoyable experience as the goals are set and pursued. Pinterest vision boards carry some additional plusses: they're less messy to create than the paper-and-glue kinds; they are accessible via any computer, tablet, or smartphone, which makes them more accessible than most vision boards; and they can be more detailed and informative than practically any other type of vision board. Additionally, you can have fun sharing them with your friends, and letting your friends provide ideas to add to them. Here's how to create a Pinterest vision board--it can take anywhere from a one-time, few-minute session to an ongoing hour-a-day habit, depending on your tastes. Have fun!

1. Join Pinterest

If you haven't already joined Pinterest, now is the time. You can create this vision board, and you can also maintain many other boards as well. Share your boards or keep them to yourself--either way is fine. Don't be scared off by the idea of getting involved in another social media site--you can always limit the amount of time you spend on Pinterest, but I can practically guarantee that you will not be bored. Sign-up in minutes at Pinterest.com, or see this article first to find the benefits of Pinterest for stress relief.

2. Decide On Your Goals

Figure out what areas of your life you would like to improve. Are you looking for a better work-life balance? A solution to job stress? Healthier relationships? Decide which aspects of your life you would like to work on, and you'll know how to search "pins" that will work for you, and that will help you to reach your goals.

3. Search And Pin

Are you looking for inspiring quotes to remember? Tips for healthy living? Ideas for creating a peaceful home? You can find it all by searching on Pinterest, and then "pinning" what you find that you like. You can also look at your friends' boards and pin at will. And don't forget the value of pinning pages you find online that you like. (This article has inspirational quotes that are easily pinned, for example.)
