How to Create a Recovery Vision Board
So, you have decided to make your very own recovery vision board. Where do you begin? We recommend following the steps listed below. If you have any additional questions you are welcome to reach out to us directly for more information.
Step 1 – Choose Your Format
If you aren’t sure where to start, we recommend finding a large piece of cardstock or a poster board, several old magazines (that you won’t mind cutting up), and some glue sticks or tape. The easiest format is a standard poster format, though you are more than welcome to make it your own!
Step 2 – Choose Specific Recovery Goals
You can make a vision board for any aspect of your life (career goals, family life, even financial aspirations), but when making a recovery-oriented vision board it makes sense to stick with recovery-related goals. These could be working through the 12 Steps in a set number of weeks or months, engaging in more service work or developing a deeper connection with your higher power. What do you want for yourself in the context of your addiction recovery journey? Make a list of potential options and hone in on several ideas that stand out.
