I scroll using the mouse wheel but i never used to pay attention to how much content i scroll through by rolling the wheel one notch. At home this value was higher than at work so i scrolled for a lot more time at work. Problem can be solved this way:
Go to your mouse settings (in Windows 10 it's in Devices & Printers > rightclick your mouse > click Mouse settings), specifically the Wheel tab and set a value for the number of lines to scroll that is right for you.
For myself, i noticed 13, 14 lines makes a good value. I can scroll through a lot of content at once without breaking continuity (the brain always needs to know exactly where in the document i am as it builds its "content model", otherwise it needs to recreate this model from scratch when this continuity of understanding is broken - scrolling a very big number of lines at a time will do that - for myself i noticed that 15, 16 is already a bit too much).
