5 Secrets Behind a Successful Vision Board

By Roz Jones

A vision board is essentially a physical manifestation of your dreams, goals, and desires. It’s a way to keep yourself motivated and inspired to achieve your objectives. But how do you create a vision board that actually works? Here are some tips to get you started.

1. Define your objectives. What do you want to achieve? What are your goals? Once you have a clear understanding of what it is you’re trying to accomplish, you can begin to narrow down what goes on your vision board.

2. Gather materials. This is where you get to be creative! You can use anything from magazines and newspapers to fabric and paint. Just make sure you have enough of whatever it is you’re using so that your vision board is large enough to contain all of your desired elements.

3. Start putting it together. This is the fun part! Begin by laying out all of your materials in front of you and then start arranging and rearranging them until you have something that feels right. There’s no wrong way to do this, so don’t worry if it takes some time to get everything just perfect. The important thing is that you’re having fun while doing it!

4. Hang it up where you’ll see it every day. This step is crucial! If you’re not constantly reminded of your vision, it’ll be all too easy to forget about it and move on to other things. So find a spot in your home or office where you’ll see your vision board every day and be reminded of what it is you’re working towards.

Creating a vision board can be a fun and therapeutic exercise that can help us caregivers focus on our goals and maintain motivation throughout our caregiving journey. By following these simple tips, you can create a vision board that works for you and helps keep you inspired along the way!

Are You a Caregiver Dealing with Naysayers? Check out my latest podcast to learn the ways you can deal with the naysayers in your life!

If you get caught in a riptide, the best way to survive is to swim with it. Go in the direction it’s carrying you. People drown when they try to overpower the tide instead of using its energy to go somewhere else.

The same principle holds true for overcoming naysayers when working as a caregiver

If you’re dealing with an active naysayer, and you try to overpower them, you will (emotionally) drown in negativity. Instead, you have to move with their energy, not fight it.

In this episode, I share a couple of ways you can deal with naysayers.

Ready, Set, GOAL DIG

By Roz Jones

Are you a caregiver who feels like you’re constantly running in circles but not getting anywhere? Do you have a to-do list a mile long and never seem to be able to check everything off? If so, it’s time to start goal digging!

What is goal digging, you ask? It’s simple: it’s setting yourself small, achievable goals that will help you move closer to your big-picture objectives. Think of it as a road map for your caregiving journey. By breaking down your goals into manageable steps, you can make significant progress without feeling overwhelmed.

Ready to get started? Here’s how to become a goal-digging caregiver!

1. Determine Your Destination

The first step in any journey is deciding where you want to go. In other words, what are your overall objectives as a caregiver? Do you want to provide the best possible care for your loved one? Improve your relationship with them? Maintain your own mental and physical health? Once you’ve identified your destination, you can start plotting out the steps you need to take to get there.

2. Set Small Goals

As we all know, Rome wasn’t built in a day. The same goes for reaching your caregiver goals! Trying to accomplish too much at once will only lead to frustration and burnout. Instead, focus on smaller achievements that will help you slowly but surely reach your destination. For example, if your goal is to improve your relationship with your loved one, start by setting aside ten minutes each day to talk with them about something other than their care. Or if you’re trying to maintain your own health and well-being, commit to going for a walk three times per week. 

Remember, baby steps lead to big accomplishments!

3. Celebrate Your Successes

It’s important to celebrate every victory—no matter how small—on your path to becoming a goal-digging caregiver. Why? Because each success will motivate and encourage you to keep going when things get tough (and trust us, they will!). So whether it’s crossing an item off your weekly task list or spending quality time with your loved one, take a moment to appreciate how far you’ve come. You deserve it!

4. Enlist Help When You Need It.

Caregiving is a team effort, so don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it! Whether it’s hiring professional help or reaching out to friends and family members for support, enlisting assistance will lighten your load and leave you more energy and time to focus on achieving your goals. 

Caregiving is a rewarding but challenging journey. Luckily, by goal-digging—that is, setting small, achievable goals—you can make significant progress without feeling overwhelmed. And when you do reach those big-picture objectives, be sure to take a moment to celebrate all that you’ve accomplished! Finally, don’t forget that caregiving is a team effort—so enlist help when necessary in order to ensure everyone’s success.

3 Tips for Creating A Successful Vision Board

By Roz Jones

A vision board is a visual representation of your dreams, goals, and aspirations. It’s a way to bring your future into focus and keep yourself motivated to achieve your statement. Creating a vision board can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it’s important to do it right in order to get the most out of it. Here are some tips for creating a successful vision board.

Keep it Simple

Your vision board should be simple and focused. Don’t try to cram too much onto it or you’ll end up with a cluttered mess. Pick a central theme or area of your life that you want to focus on, such as your career, health, or personal relationships. From there, you can narrow down your choices of images, quotes, and other items to include on your board.

Make it Meaningful

The items you choose for your vision board should be meaningful to you. They should represent your deepest desires and aspirations. If you’re not passionate about what you’re putting on your board, it’s not going to be effective. Take some time to really think about what you want to include before you start putting anything down.

Choose Inspiring Images

The images you choose for your vision board should be inspiring. They should make you feel excited about your future and motivated to achieve your goals. Avoid using any negative or uninspiring images on your board. Anything that makes you feel discouraged is only going to hold you back.

Creating a vision board can be a fun way to bring your future into focus and stay motivated to achieve your goals. Keep these tips in mind while putting together your own vision board, and you’ll be sure to create something that truly inspires you!

A Caregiver’s Guide to Goal Setting

By Roz Jones

Goal setting is an important part of self-care. When we set goals, we are taking charge of our lives and charting a course for our future. Achieving our goals gives us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that can boost our mood and confidence.

Caregivers often have a lot on their plate, and it can be easy to let goal-setting fall by the wayside. But taking the time to set goals for yourself is an important part of taking care of yourself. When you are clear about what you want to achieve, you are more likely to achieve it. And when you achieve your goals, you’ll feel good about yourself—which is an important part of self-care.

How to Set Goals

  1. The first step in setting goals is to decide what you want to achieve. What are your long-term and short-term goals? What do you want to accomplish in the next week, month, or year? Once you have a general idea of what you want to achieve, you can start setting specific goals. 

Your goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. In other words, your goal should be something like “I will walk for 30 minutes every day” rather than “I will exercise more.” A specific goal is more likely to be achieved than a general one. 

  1. You should also make sure that your goal is something that you can realistically achieve. If your goal is too ambitious, you may get discouraged and give up before you reach it. On the other hand, if your goal is too easy, you may not get the satisfaction of accomplishing something challenging. 
  1. Finally, make sure that your goal is relevant to your life and something that you really want to achieve. Achieving a goal that is important to you will be much more rewarding than achieving a goal that isn’t as meaningful. 

Once you have decided on a specific goal, write it down or tell someone about it so that you are accountable for achieving it. Then, make a plan for how you will achieve your goal. Break down your goal into small steps that you can complete over time. For example, if your goal is to walk for 30 minutes every day, start by walking for 10 minutes per day and build up from there. 

Setting realistic, achievable goals for yourself is an important part of self-care. When you take the time to set goals and develop a plan for how to achieve them, you are taking charge of your life and making choices that will help you improve your well-being. When caregivers make self-care a priority, they are better able to care for their loved ones—so don’t hesitate to set some goals for yourself today!

The Power of Vision Boards

By Roz Jones

As we age and our loved ones continue to age, it’s important to keep our minds active and engaged. One way to do this is by creating vision boards with our aging loved ones. Vision boards are a great way to encourage creativity, conversation, and connection. Plus, they’re a lot of fun to make!

What is a Vision Board?

A vision board is a collage of images, words, and phrases that represent your dreams and goals. The process of creating a vision board helps you to clarify what you want in life and gives you a roadmap to achieve it.

Why Vision Boards are Important for the Elderly

As we age, it’s easy to become disconnected from our dreams and goals. Creating a vision board can help your aging loved ones reconnect with their passions and remind them of what’s important to them. The act of physically putting together a board also helps to keep their minds active and engaged. And finally, working on a vision board together can be a great way to start conversations and build connections.

How to Create a Vision Board

The first step is to gather supplies. You’ll need a large piece of poster board or foam core, scissors, glue or tape, magazines, and any other materials you want to use (markers, crayons, etc). Once you have your supplies gathered, sit down with your loved one and begin going through the magazines, cutting out images and words that represent their dreams and goals. Encourage them to be creative and have fun with it! Once they have a good selection of images and words, help them arrange them on the poster board or foam core. Once they’re happy with the arrangement, glue or tape everything down. Hang their finished vision board in a place where they’ll see it every day as a reminder of their dreams and goals. 

Creating vision boards with your aging loved ones is a great way to encourage creativity, conversation, and connection. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Follow the steps above to get started. Who knows—you might just discover some dreams and goals that you share!
