Ideas for Quantified Self experiments

Once I will be reasonably confident that I have a semi-OK-baseline, it would be great to actually start doing stuff.

How to do self-experiments:

I’d also like to make predictions at the beginning, and to ask myself some question (how hard was it, do I feel deprived or tempted, etc). This will keep me focused

Those are the ones that I suspect will be very interesting and easy to do and formalize and with the biggest possible impact:
  1. Eliminating caffeine (ABAB)
    1. Semi-regularly but tracked except for tea (right now)
    2. Use caffeine+L-theanine systematically and see how (and when) does it influence the following: (for two weeks)
      1. CBS
      2. DNB
      3. typing speed
      4. General wellbeing(=mood)
    3. Phenibut 2-3 times in the middle of those two weeks
    4. Eliminate both caffeine and phenibut totally after that, for two weeks
  2. Jogging/exercise on sleep and mood the following day/night (I think I can do it at the same time as 1.)
  3. Creatine and citrulline on workouts and jogging (keep them consistent, 2-3 times a week, and just either take them or not, and see what happens)
    1. The workout/run itself
    2. Muscle soreness next day
  4. Food on cognition, especially a lot of it, especially junk food
    1. Not as experiment, just record it, and see what happens.
Not a priority but very interesting:
  1. No caffeine or alcohol for 30 days
  2. ISR every evening for 2 weeks
  3. Vegan for 30 days
  4. Intermittent fasting
  5. Mindfullness meditation every evening for 20 days
More abstract:
  1. Recite affirmations every day
  2. Activity alarm every 30 minutes
  3. MINDFULLNESS and outside
  4. Eat only on response of hunger
  5. Write 1000 words a day for two weeks

Over and out for now
