If you look up the word ideal in the dictionary, you will see synonyms like perfect, flawless, seamless, and impeccable. For most of us, these are words that make an ideal anything seem unattainable. So, you may be wondering why I am encouraging you to create something that is seemingly unattainable. There is a method to my ‘madness’.
The process of creating your ideal day taps into your imagination and opens you to possibility. When you compare your ideal day to your current reality, you are able to see where changes are needed to make reality more like the ideal. It gives you something to aspire to each and every day.
This week, I invite you to spend some time creating your ideal day. Compare your ideal day to your typical day. Identify 3-5 things that you would like to change and create a plan of action. Small changes on a daily basis can have a big effect.
Consider creating a vision board/visual representation of your ideal day. It is a powerful tool for staying focused and bringing your vision to life through the use of words, images, and symbols. The key is to include words, images, and symbols that are meaningful to you. Keep your board in a place where you will see it on a daily basis. It will serve as a reminder of how you would like to live your life on a daily basis.
What you will need:
- Your goals/desired outcomes for your day
- Poster board, cork board, or large piece of paper
- Glue, tape, push pins (depending on the type of board you are using)
- Words, images, and symbols that you cut out of magazines and/or download from the internet
- Colored pens and/or markers for handwritten words and/or images
There is no right or wrong way to create your board. It is a creative process that produces a visual representation of what you desire for your day/life. Need some inspiration? This link will take you to Google images for vision boards.
Living your life one day at a time will help you stay grounded and present to your life.
