I’ve been adding vision board workshops to the courses I offer. Vision boards, if you don’t know, are collages that individuals make to help them discover and set goals and then manifest the things and experiences they want to add to their lives. Magazines are a great supply of interesting images for vision boards.
I found sites that offered magazine subscriptions for a couple of dollars and so subscribed to several different magazines that I thought would have images my workshop participants could use (seriously, I ordered four subscriptions for the price of one issue of one magazine on the newsstand). Honestly, as someone with minimalist tendencies, it felt weird to order magazines and even stranger to collect a box of magazines. But, they have a very specific purpose.
Do you still enjoy the magazines that you subscribe to? You can cancel the subscriptions or allow them to run out. Going to a doctor’s appointments? Bring and leave some of your magazines!
