I rested on this day (I stayed in bed and sat around daydreaming the whole day, and minimized the amount of reading and writing I did) and started a caffeine reset.

Regarding the severe form of rest, I was curious to see if I would feel more rested by cutting out reading and writing. (If you spend any time reading rationalist writing, you will hear people talking about sabbath.) As of 2019-02-19, I think it helped a little but probably not much. My guess is that I get enough rest each night and that I don’t have any personal problems that are helped by this sort of intensive rest/introspection. It could also be that caffeine withdrawal is making it hard to tell how rested I am.
