NEW YEAR, NEW YOU.

January 18, 2017



2017 has started and I'm sure you probably have started the year with a few goals in mind. Some of those goals I'm sure will be forgotten a few weeks or months from now, but what can you do to keep this dreams alive and on check throughout the year? ¡Muy simple!, put a vision board together for 2017.
So you ask ¿Que es un vision board?, well a vision board as I like to put is a fun visual way of looking at your goals day after day.
The process of creating a vision board is very unique to each one of us, some people cut out pictures from magazines to represent the things they want to obtain in the upcoming year, others draw things out, or print out in wording goals or declarations of things they believe and hope to remember each year. It's also a fun activity to do with your kids, ¡Imaginate! each one of your kids creating their own vision board for the coming year! 
Okay so, What do you do once you have your vision board? 
  1. Put it somewhere where you can look at it every day. This doesn't mean hide it behind the door or put it in your closet where you probably won't ever see it, I mean put it on your fridge so you look at it every time you go grab a snack, Or next to your mirror so you look at it before you put on your make up.
  2. The following is very important you need to read aloud all your goals or declarations. Por ejemplo, one of my goals is to eat healthier and be healthier this year, so I will either have a picture of someone eating healthy or exercising, I might have words saying "I'm going to eat healthy and be healthy", Read them out loud, visualize yourself already being healthier, maybe visualize yourself being tone and in shape! You get el punto, believe it and be loud about it.
  3. Ladies, last but not least making your dreams a reality requires hard work! Don't just Dream, make your dreams, your goals, things you wish for a reality. Go the extra mile, put in the hours, do your research, don't take no for an answer, improve, improvise, leave your comfort zone and try new things.
Mis mejores deseos, and best vibes sent your way for this upcoming 2017.
