Plus for those of you who are a bit more graphically skilled or feeling a bit more creative you can even make your own desktop wallpaper instead.
But the idea behind this little “mind hack” is that when your feeling a bit down, un-motivated and need that little boost from time to time you can minimize everything and take a look at your motivational desktop background and feel energized!
It’s really simple to do….”Im using windows XP so this may alter slightly“
1st of you need to find the size of your monitor/display.
To do this simply right click on the desktop and select “properties”, then go across to “settings” and it will tell you what display resolution your using. Now you have your image size!
Now it’s time to go and find an image…
Personally i found the best way and place to find an wallpaper of the right size was to use the google image search.
Then you can use the advanced parameters to select the exact size although most of the sites you get sent to once you find an image you like offer the wallpaper in various sizes anyway.
But simply search for things like…
top desktop wallpapers
best desktop wallpaper
Then when you have found the one you like, download it and save it!
If you prefer to make one of your own then simply either open up photoshop or fireworks or even paint if you have neither of those two and start pasting pictures together that you like.
My last wallpaper was a collection of my goals, such as the car i wanted, the places i wanted to visit in the background, a new laptop and a love heart to find love!
But your’s can be whatever its your goals and your choice!
You simply click on the tab called “Desktop” as shown in the screenshot below and then click “Browse” and find the image you want to change it to! And then click OK!
And your done
So right now my wallpaper if of a beach (below) because that relates to my “goals list” of “travel the world” and soon enough im going to be the one who’s taking pictures like this with me behind the lense (or looking stupid in front of it).
Oh and BTW my desktop isn’t usually this clean and that isn’t dirty videos that im downloading LOL!
