There are a lot of useful ways to setup your browser homepage or start page, but sometimes what you need is a positive boost. A special quote or photo can do the trick.

When you think of how often you open your browser to check email, social networks, or do your work, it can add up. Kosio Angelov at High Performance Lifestyle suggests you use your homepage for inspiration instead of utility:
It can be a motivational video. Or your favourite quote. Or a picture. You know best what inspires you on a regular basis so put that as your homepage... The homepage for most people is something work related — email, calendar, Google or the default page of your browser. Not only is that not helpful to your happiness, but it can make you unproductive as well when you get sucked into the email vortex every time you open a new tab.
So what will inspire you right now? Maybe you're trying to get into shape and an exercise video will help you keep on track. Or maybe you're trying to be a more positive person and a quote about finding the silver lining in things will help you focus on what matters. Whatever it may be, you may as well use it whenever you can.
