A great way to keep a positive outlook is to create a map pinboard. While it will be visually appealing and add a fun look to your room it will also help you to reflect on the past, enjoy the present, and look forward to the future.
So what is a map pinboard you might ask? Well, it is a way to track where you have been and where you want to go. You can either make it yourself or buy one. While buying one is the easier way, making one yourself might give a sense of accomplishment.
To make it yourself you will need a corkboard, adhesive and a large map that will fill the corkboard. You can choose what type of map you want to use, for example, a world map or a country map. You can even get custom maps made, which would allow you to focus in on a certain area or region. Then you will want to take the map and attach it to the corkboard using the adhesive and let it dry. Once it is dry, hang it on the wall or wherever you deem is best.
Once you have your map pinboard, take pins of different colors and stick one color in all the cities or places you have been, then choose a different color and put pins in places that you loved or would want to go back to, and lastly put a different color in places that you want to visit.
This pinboard acts as a way to see where you have been and reflect on the great memories and trips of the past but also allows you to dream and plan for the future. A board like this will not only serve as inspiration and motivation for you but it will also make a great decoration for your room.
