How to make a Digital Vision Board
Here are all the steps and details required to make an effective digital vision board online.
Step 1: Find Vision board categories
Making a vision board can be challenging as your entire life goals and dreams need to be consised in the vision board. So, to make the process easier, I highly recommend to start the process by selecting a few of the categories that you would like to focus on.
Breaking down the vision board into categories makes the creation process easier and helps you manifest your vision board more effectively. Start by determining the key areas of your life that you want to focus on, such as career, relationships, health, personal growth, finances, or travel. Each category must represent a unique aspect of your life that you are passionate about and want to nurture.
Honing in on specific categories will help bring clarity and intention to your vision board practice. So take a moment to explore the various categories that resonate with you, and your need in life and will help you get the successful life you had always envisioned.
Step 2: Vision board goal setting
Once you have identified the categories you must start with goal setting for your vision board. Define goals for each of the category to get a vision board that really works for you. Setting goals that are realistic and defined outcomes will help you select the right images and elements for your vision board. It allows you to prioritize your goals and allow you to create a vision board that truly reflects your desires and motivations.
I have created a workbook that you can use for easy vision board goal setting, you can download it here to start planning your goals.

Selecting aesthetic vision board pictures is an essential step in creating a visually inspiring and meaningful representation of your goals and aspirations.
You must choose images that resonate with you on a deep level and are better if those are real representations of your goal. For example, if you have a goal to get into a particular university you must add a picture of that university, to help you visualize yourself being part of that university.
The pictures you select must evoke emotions, capture your desired lifestyle, and align with your core values. If possible you should try to gather pictures of similar aesthetics, so that your vision board will have a cohesive appearance and bring up the overall aesthetic and message of your vision board. Pictures serve as powerful visual reminders of the life you wish to manifest so, take the time to explore various sources such as magazines, websites, and social media platforms to find the perfect images that speak directly to your soul and inspire you to turn your dreams into reality.

Step 5: Selecting Vision board template
With the pictures ready now it is the time to assemble them as a vision board and bring dreams to reality. To make the process easier pick a template from the platform that you have selected in step 3 most of them offer free vision board templates.
While selecting the template for the vision board consider the overall design and layout of the template, ensure it reflects your personal aesthetic and motivates you to take action. Whether you prefer a minimalist approach or a vibrant and colorful design, finding a template that ignites inspiration within you is essential.
Additionally, make sure that all the sections and categories you desire can be included in the template and provide enough space for you to visualize and specify your desires.
I would suggest that you emphasize the layout and not the color theme as most templates allow you to edit the color in a few clicks.
