Creating Vision Boards with Your Aging Loved Ones

By Roz Jones

The process of aging can be difficult for both the person going through it and their caregivers. As our loved ones age, it’s important to find ways to connect with them and help them maintain a positive outlook on life. One great way to do this is by creating vision boards together.

What is a vision board? A vision board is a collection of images, words, and phrases that represent what you want to achieve in your life. The process of creating a vision board is a fun and easy way to reconnect with your loved one and get them excited about the future. Plus, it’s a great way to stimulate their creative side!

Here’s how to get started:

1. Gather Your Supplies

To create a vision board, you’ll need some basic supplies like a poster board, scissors, glue, and markers or crayons. You can also look for special collage kits at your local craft store. Once you have your supplies, clear off a large work surface where you can spread everything out.

2. Collect Images and Words

Next, start collecting images and words that represent what you want to achieve. These can be pictures from magazines, photos you print from the internet, or even personal handwritten messages. If you’re working with an aging loved one, try to focus on positive themes like happiness, travel, family, or friends. 

3. Create Your Vision Board

Once you have all of your materials gathered, it’s time to start putting your vision board together! Encourage your loved one to be creative and have fun with it. They can use as many or as few images as they like, and they can arrange them however they like on the poster board. 

4. Hang It Up and Enjoy!

When your vision board is complete, find a spot to hang it up where you’ll see it every day. This serves as a reminder of all the wonderful things you’re working towards in your life. Every time you look at it, take a moment to reflect on your goals and imagine achieving them. Achievement feels that much sweeter when you’ve got a beautiful reminder hanging on your wall! 

The process of aging can be difficult for both the person going through it and their caregivers. However, by finding ways to connect with our loved ones and help them stay positive, we can make the journey a little bit easier for everyone involved. Creating vision boards together is a great way to reconnect with aging loved ones and get them excited about the future. Plus, it’s a fun activity that stimulates their creative side! So gather up some supplies and give it a try today!

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.
