Creating life transformation boards
In the book- The ‘Pinterest Diet’ it has been mentioned that you need to create 5 transformation boards on Pinterest and they are:
1) MSF (Most Satisfying) Factor Foods
This board should have photos of foods that contain protein, healthy fat, fibre since they help in providing satiety.
2) Workout plans
Pin photos of individual exercises and daily workout plans.
3) Daily inspiration
Pin photos of motivational quotes so that they can inspire you each day. You can even pin photos of people who deeply inspire you.
4) In the Know
Stay aware of healthy stuff and pin photos of articles related to reducing stress, improving sleep or knowing about seasonal fruits and veggies.
5) Favourite products
You can pin the photos of your favourite products that you already own or want to own.
Pin pics everyday for 10 minutes
Pinterest is dynamic in nature. It keeps changing constantly just like how our lives do. Your life transformation boards should also change on a day to day basis. Try to pin at least one pic on one board a day. If possible pin onto all the five boards.
You must spend at least 10 mins every day to go through Pinterest and look at new and healthy recipes, exercises, motivational quotes, health bytes, products and stuff that strike your fancy. Look at your boards and what you have pinned on it every single day. The most important point here is that you must learn from the pics you pin on the boards. Don’t do it just for the sake of dong it. It should be done from your heart. When you spend time on Pinterest you are actually taking care of yourself. You are nourishing your mind as well as body. All this helps you in refocusing on your goals and staying determined to achieve them.
