If anyone knows how to stay motivated, it’s Olympian Nastia Liukin. She does have an impressive collection of gold medals to show for herself, after all. And though Liukin is no longer competing for gymnastics titles, she still has goals to meet. To stay on her organizational toes, the athlete turns to an artistic wellness habit at the start of every year: vision boarding.

“Something I’ve always done while training and continue to do now is that every New Year’s Eve, I sit down and make a new vision board for the year,” Liukin told Byrdie. “I jot down my goals, things I want to accomplish, places I want to visit, etc. I also make it a fun project by adding motivational quotes, stickers—you’re never too old for those, right?!—you name it.”

“I think seeing your goals in front of you instead of just remembering them in your mind is a great way to stay motivated, especially on those days you feel like giving up.” —Nastia Liukin

To make sure she sees her vision board every morning, Liukin keeps the work of art by her vanity mirror: “I think seeing your goals in front of you instead of just remembering them in your mind is a great way to stay motivated, especially on those days you feel like giving up,” she said.

Want to make your own vision board, Liukin-style? According to self-care expert Nitika Chopra, all it takes is a few steps: Make a list of all the things that really light you up in life, grab some magazines, and map out your images. It’s an easy way to dream a little bigger and work on making those dreams become a reality.
