Vision boards are a popular tool used to manifest your goals and help you stay on track with achieving them. Most of us make vision boards or New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of the year, but this year threw us for a loop.
The pandemic is causing some very unexpected changes. But, while some goals are now unfeasible, given the circumstances, there is no better time than now to establish new goals and visions for 2020.
A great way to do it? With a vision board.
A vision board is based on the power of visualization. As said in the popular book, The Secret: “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience, and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”
Some of us use vision boards to stay on track with wellness, career, and life goals. When we make a physical space for those goals, they become easier to remember throughout the day and feel more real than if you were just to be imagining them in your head.
So, while we may have been thrown off track during this pandemic, there are still plenty of obtainable, motivating goals that we can still strive to achieve.
Here are 5 common goals that you can still achieve in 2020, with a little adjustment!
1. Stay fit.
Were you planning on going to an in-person fitness class every day? While many in-person fitness classes are canceled or just not the safest option, there are great ways to stay fit, motivated, and in the swing of things. Consider online fitness classes. Programs like Soar Studios can give you a great workout and supports your favorite trainers. We also love Mellissa Wood Health, a fitness guru who shares a range of pilates, strength, yoga, meditation, treadmill series, water series, and pre-natal/post-natal flows
Or had you planned for a year filled with travel? Take a COVID-Staycation! We love the Klook, a travel platform chock-full of virtual travel experiences– you can even livestream a trip in a Bali Safari Park and get an exclusive look at baby komodo dragons.
Want something a bit more mobile? Airbnb has seen a massive increase in demand for local stays. Staying somewhere close means you still have the getaway, all while eliminating the need for air travel.
3. Eat healthily.
Are you too slammed with work to spend too much time cooking? Consider using a healthy meal delivery program, like Sakara Life. Sakara Life provides organic plant-based meals to your doorstep, all pre-prepped and ready to eat. Forbes appropriately described it as “a Blue Apron-like meal delivery program for aspiring Gwyneth Paltrows.” Highlighting “the power of food as medicine,” founders Whitney and Danielle have successfully created a luxury lifestyle and wellness brand.
4. Cook more.
You don’t need a cooking class to learn how to make great, healthy, and delicious meals! There are tons of virtual cooking classes that can help you brush up on your cooking skills while in quarantine. Airbnb Experiences is offering online cooking classes. You can even learn how to make colorful, healthy pasta in Palombara Sabina, Italy.
You can also check out Massimo Bottura’s “Kitchen Quarantine,” where the chef of the three-Michelin-star Osteria Francescana holds classes focusing on creating simple meals using ingredients you likely already have on hand.
5. Learn a new skill.
The opportunities here are truly endless.
Want to improve your strength, posture, flexibility, and mobility? Try taking up Pilates. I think of Pilates as the perfect mid-day work break to balance my body, clear my mind, and boost my endorphins. Not only does Pilates up my fitness game, but it also improves my health as a whole!

While 2020 definitely looks a bit different from what we planned, you can still use a vision board to create and tweak on track and stay on track with health, wellness, and life goals.
