I rarely feel comfortable. I have a dreadful attention span. I want to be able to enjoy the moment I am in.

Do you know that feeling you get when you're waiting in the doctors office? You're browsing through your phone or a two year old Top Gear magazine, yet you aren't fully reclined, you can't focus on the article, your ears are up waiting for the call. It's nothing time.

Well that's how I feel all the time. I feel like I'm waiting for something. I don't commit to anything. I have a poor attention span. Most of my 'down time' is spent thinking about what I can do to enjoy my down time. Planning out some film to watch that I won't, or a game to play that I'll quit within 10 minutes. I feel like it's an internet thing. I really believe it has ruined my attention in many ways.

This is impacting my relaxation time, it is impacting my studies, career, etc.

Don't be so hasty to blame the internet. It sounds like you might be scared to commit to doing just one thing, as that can seem like it closes the doors to all the other infinite possibilites of things to do.

I read The Shallows by Nicholas Carr last year and the author put forth a pretty convincing argument for how our thought processes are shaped by the technologies we invent. We invented the book, and the book shaped our minds to think in deep, patient, and contemplative ways. We invented the internet, and the internet is moulding our brains to constantly seek out quick hits of shallow information.

Experimenting with limiting one's internet use is definitely a good idea.
