Are you finding it hard to bring yourself to a state of positivity? That’s okay, modern times can be stressful, with pressures from work, family obligations, and everything negative happening in the world, it can be a struggle to find the positive amidst all the stress and worries in your life.
However, if you want to actively create the life of your dreams, you need to consciously transform negative thoughts into positive ones, so you can harness the power of the Universe to bring you a life of abundance and prosperity.
One of the most effective ways to put yourself in a state of positivity is self-care. Yes, finding time to honor yourself is key to positivity.
Remember that feelings of calm, joy, and happiness raise your vibrational frequency, while feelings of sadness, anger, and hate put you in a low vibrational frequency.
Vibration is crucial to manifest all the good things in life, and in order for you to raise your vibration, you need to feel good.
In this article, we’ll show you how to make a self-care plan on a vision board laptop, so you can propel yourself to reach new heights in your vibrational frequency.
Raise Your Vibrational Frequency Through Self-Care
Here is everything you need to know about self-care, what you can do to practice it, and why it’s important in your manifestation journey.
What is Self-Care?
When most people hear the word “self-care,” they automatically think of bubble baths and home spa sessions. A survey revealed that 47% of American adults say that self-care automatically conjures up at-home spa experiences.
In another survey of American adults, 74% say they associate self-care with taking care of the body, highlighting fitness, grooming rituals, beauty, and exercise as parts of a self-care routine.
While yes, taking care of the body is part of self-care, there is so much more to it than just having a day of relaxation.
Self-care is the practice of taking care of your physical and mental health and engaging in activities that promote overall well-being.
According to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), a US government agency on a mission to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on communities, there are 8 dimensions of wellness that help you optimize your health, and these are:
Efforts to practice self-care should include these 8 aspects, to be able to achieve optimal well-being. So it’s not just about exercising, eating a good diet, or having a mani/pedi every now and then, but self-care is about cultivating positive experiences across all aspects of your life, which results in a positive mindset.
It is also about honoring what brings you joy, comfort, and happiness, no matter what it looks like. As long as you’re not hurting anybody or taking something away from someone else, self-care is anything that brings you positive emotions.
Though there is no cookie-cutter playbook for what self-care looks like and it can look differently for different people, it all boils down to honoring experiences that feel good to you, which cultivates positive feelings.
How Does it Promote Positivity?
Self-care promotes positivity through positive emotions. As mentioned earlier, feelings that involve anger, hate, disappointment, and sadness put you in a state of low vibrational frequency.
To transform this negative frequency, you need to engage in activities that raise your vibration, and one of the ways you can do this is through self-care.
Engaging in self-care activities has been scientifically proven to reduce stress levels, minimize anxiety and depression, improve the immune system, and increase levels of happiness.
One survey revealed that Americans claimed self-care benefits as:
- Happiness (71%)
- Enhanced self-confidence (64%)
- Increased productivity (67%)
- Reduces heart disease, cancer, and stroke
The benefits of self-care are clinically proven and it’s one of the simple things you can do to achieve a positive mindset, which is crucial for manifesting your goals.
Why Is Self-Care Important in Manifesting Your Goals?
The Law of Attraction states that we need to have positive thoughts and positive emotions to transform our dreams into reality.
It’s a struggle for many people to stay positive in times of stress and anxiety. Being positive and hopeful for the future can be challenging for many people, especially when they constantly worry about what to put on the table.
When you’re too busy surviving, you forget to live, and that includes actively taking part in creating your life.
When it comes to accomplishing your goals and dreams, it is crucial to have positive emotions because you need to match the vibrational frequency of what you want. For example, you want to have a loving family, but how can you attract that when you don’t feel good about yourself?
That is where self-care comes in. Taking care of your body, both physically and mentally, makes you feel good. And when you feel good, you align with the positive things you want to attract in your life.
This is why self-care is essential when you manifest your goals. Because feeling good is a requirement for manifestation.
Create a Self-Care Plan on a Vision Board Laptop
Now that you know that taking care of yourself is key to manifestation, let’s begin our guide to creating your self-care plan on a vision board laptop.
Creating a digital vision board outlining your self-care plan is a great way to access your goals. Creating a soft copy on an Excel file, making a collage on Pinterest, or making an actual virtual vision board on your laptop is an easy and convenient way to create your self-care worksheet.
To help you create this action plan, here are 4 self-care activities that have been proven to promote well-being and positivity:
Physical exercise has been proven to be beneficial in reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Walking, jogging, playing sports, or simply spending time outdoors have been proven to help the brain cope better with stress.
Create a self-care plan to join the gym, hike, go jogging, or simply spend time at the beach, go outdoors, and get moving.
You don’t have to enroll in a fitness program or hire a personal trainer. Simple physical activities like cleaning the house or strolling in a park are known to have both physical and mental health benefits that support your quest to take care of yourself.
Get Enough Sleep
Prioritizing sleep can help improve your health but also regulate your mood. It also helps increase your energy levels, boost your brain function, and improve your immune system.
Create a plan to sleep at the same time at night, creating a sleep routine. Avoid using your phone right before you sleep, and avoid having caffeine and sugar before going to bed.
Practicing healthy sleep patterns is a simple way to take care of yourself.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Did you know you can adapt your diet to boost serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters in your brain? Yes, certain foods can improve your mood, such as olive oil, fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, and so many more.
Create a healthy, balanced diet that is known to boost happy hormones, helping you stay healthy and happy.
You also need to set boundaries and say no from time to time. If you feel like you’re being pressured or forced to do something you don’t want to do, then learn to say no.
If your boss at work asks you to do overtime but you don’t want to miss having dinner with your kids, then say no. Don’t attempt to say yes because you don’t want to disappoint your boss. Honor what feels good to you and say no to things that don't.

Being positive all the time can be hard for many people but one key to raising your vibrational frequency is practicing self-care.
According to Dr. Sam Zand, a clinical psychiatrist and chief medical officer in Las Vegas, healthy habits have the power to change your emotions because these are imprinted into our neurocircuitry.
In other words, the more activities you do to take care of yourself, or engage in pleasurable activities, and think more positively that it becomes a habit, you can have the power to create changes in your brain. This is possible through neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to change.
Taking better care of yourself and making it a habit can transform a negative mindset into a positive mindset through changes in the neural pathways in the brain.
So, if you want to make these positive changes, start creating a self-care vision board laptop version or physical board, and start changing the neural patterns in your brain from negativity to positivity.
