Vision boards aren’t woo-woo, airy-fairy exercises. Visualization is scientifically proven to work.
Olympic athletes have been using it for decades to improve performance. Back to the science… it has been proven over and over again that the brain patterns activated while performing an action or task are similarly activated when you imagine or visualize the same action.
A vision board is one of the easiest ways to consistently remind yourself of what you want to create. Take a moment to visualize what you want to achieve. Having a clear vision of what you want will get you through unclear moments.
Create a vision board filled with inspiring photos, images and words that will help you visualize the healthy lifestyle that you desire.
Healthy habits are just like muscles; they will get stronger and stronger the more you work them. So, repeat after me “consistency trumps perfection every time”. If you fall off the wagon, take a deep breath and hop back on without making yourself feel guilty.
Be proud of yourself for the progress you’ve made thus far. You’re human, not a robot. Remember that your goal is progress, not perfection!
