(NBC News) Vision boards were once thought of as something just for artists or creative people, but that's not the case at all.
The concept is simple according to Louise Bartlett, who teaches vision board workshops both in-person and online.
Bartlett helps clients narrow down what values are important to them.
"We're looking at the places where life is good, and it's happening, and we want more of that," she says. "Which is where the law of attraction comes into play."
Creating the physical board comes next.
"Spend time ripping images and words out of magazines, finding newspapers, cards hang tags, wallpaper anything that you can find that just gives you a sense of value," Bartlett advises.
Bartlett's personal vision board is a mix of things that are important to her now, but also things she wants to focus on in the future.
Experts say keep your board active using pins or tape, so you can update your goals throughout the year, and once you're done, display it prominently.
"I would suggest that if it feels like a piece of art, treat it like a piece of art, give it a proper place on your wall and I think that's a great way to invite positive energy into your home," says Melanie Berliet of The Spruce.
