I feel like when I skim mindlessly through media I feel a little anxious and less relaxed? As opposed to when I sit down and take the time to read a long passage or something that really requires a substantial amount of concentration time. Instead of having our focus jumping around literally every second or two focusing on things for longer bits of time could help the mind slow down and become less anxious. Anyways this is just a theory of mine. This is comprehensively explained in the book "The Shallows" but I do not know if there was any mention of anxiety in that book as I haven't gotten around to reading it myself. Just curious as to what other people think of this? Do you feel more anxious when you habitual skim through the internet most of your day? And how do you feel after spending the day slowing down your mind by reading a book or a long passage on the internet?
