It started with trying to hide the default new tab page in the Chrome browser. All I wanted to do was hide my most visited pages (the typical school stuff, but not very interesting) and maybe have something a little more aesthetically pleasing. I tried a few different “new tab” Chrome Extensions, but nothing that really wowed me until I found Momentum. Every day I am greeted with a personal hello and a new inspirational quote. My favorite feature though is the absolutely breathtaking photo that changes every day. It even tells you the location of where the photo was taken.
I became completely sold on Momentum after a particularly difficult day of teaching. I had not experienced a day that trying in many years. During the height of my stressful day I opened a new tab to find the following quote: “Don’t let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life.” Of course I took a screenshot, took a deep breath, and realized it was just one day that meant very little in my lifetime career of (awesome) teaching.
The Momentum Chrome Extension can display the weather, an ongoing To Do List that syncs across devices, and a daily focus or goal. I like that the features displayed can be customized to your liking.
