Within a matter of weeks, we will no longer have to suffer through a Texas winter anymore. As fun as winter can be, we are overdue for better weather and a healthier state of mind. 

Just think about all the differences between winter and spring. Winter shuts us indoors. Nighttime creeps up earlier and earlier in the day. Everything seems grayer and bleaker. We bundle up to protect ourselves from the cold temperatures. There is nothing more we want to do than be close to warmth.

Spring invites the sun to stay out longer and warms our spirits. Everything is bright and clear. Nature begins to thrive again. The flowers bloom and animals come out from hibernation. Spring is the season of growth and new beginnings for all of nature.

The changing seasons can act as a powerful time for reflection and transformation. Looking back on the winter season, you might realize you have some habits and beliefs that you want to get rid of. The best way to develop a vision for how to live your best life this spring is by creating a vision board.

Vision boards are collages that represent the personal development you are seeking for a particular period or season. They act as inspiration and set the expectation to invite new experiences in your life. Vision boards are typically tied to spiritual concepts such as manifestation or the law of attraction. Regardless, vision boards can be a helpful tool to provide clarity to your goals and are fun to make.

A screenshot of a spring vision board using Pinterest displays ten stacked photos representing goals and aspirations. From left to right on the top row are photos of a woman reading a book covering her face, a woman reading a book outside sitting on a picnic blanket, a woman dressed in yellow and white leaning against a pole holding a bouquet of flowers, a desk with a laptop and planner and lastly a field of multi-colored wildflowers. From left to right on the bottom row are photos of a woman’s hands holding a basket of flowers, two bowls of various sliced fruit, a woman in a sundress lying on grass, a woman meditating on the beach at sunrise and lastly a woman jogging on the beach.
An example of a spring vision board made using Pinterest.

Here are some common goals you can incorporate into your vision for this spring: 

  • Eat more produce: if you have been wanting to eat healthier, fresh produce is going to be your best friend. Look out for seasonal fruits and vegetables for spring like kale, asparagus, and strawberries. 
  • Spend more time in nature: spending time outside is linked to several health benefits including but not limited to increasing your vitamin D intake, easing anxiety, and boosting your energy.
  • Make plans for spring break: can you believe spring break is mere weeks away? If you haven’t already, make plans to enjoy yourself and recharge. Even if those plans are to spend the whole week in your apartment.
  • Accomplish some spring cleaning: cleaning becomes a piece of cake when you have manageable goals and go at a steady pace.  
  • Save money for a splurge purchase: save up for something that represents the incoming season. Save for a signature spring fragrance or a bright and loud eyeshadow palette for a new look. 
  • Pass those midterms: just like spring break, midterms are coming up sooner than you would think. Look out for those dates and plan accordingly.

Once you have clearly defined goals, you can begin to collect pieces of inspiration to add to your physical or digital vision board. Add anything that reminds you of your goals, like photos from the internet, photos you have taken or your favorite empowering quotes. Focus on how the images you choose make you feel instead of replicating what you see in magazines or online.

Keep your vision board in a place you will always come back to it and feel inspired, whether that’s on Pinterest or hanging above your desk. Continue to add to your vision board when your priorities change or you become passionate about new things this spring. Be creative and encourage change and growth for the next season.
