I use the internet for everything. In fact, as a result of my job I am on the internet all day (literally 9 hours for work and several just browsing). Surfing the web has pretty much become my form of entertainments. As such, I feel like this has given way to almost ADD type behaviors.
For instance, I could be typing a work email and the middle of a sentence go off to google something.
Various web timers,shutting off social media, and closing my email wont work since my job requires me to respond to emails and also has a social media/web site maintenance component to it.
Help me reclaim my focus.
