Keeping a Sabbath seems like a good idea:

> We need freedom from work. Decide what counts as work to you. Don’t do that. Anything done for money is automatically work. During the week, time is money. Today, do what you value.

> We need freedom from interruption. Space to think. Cut off the outside world. Especially cut off anything continuously updating and all periodic rewards. There lie Skinner boxes. Much of the world is out to get you. Today it can wait. Friendly visitors are welcome, but ideally arranged in advance.

> We need freedom from choice. Full freedom from choice requires a step beyond the traditional rules. In my version, even among permitted activities, only those explicitly selected in advance are available – particular books, radio stations and so forth – plus things you feel intrinsic motivation to do. No lists. No browsing.

> We need freedom from stress. Stressful conversations are not allowed. Doing work is not allowed. Making decisions is not allowed. Outside information is not allowed. If something was still going to stress you out and it was fixable, fix it before the Sabbath. Things can’t change on their own, and you can’t make them change. Why stress? [...]

> Start here. Adjust as needed.
> Light candles before sundown Friday to begin.
> No outside inputs except in person.
> No choices impacting post-Sabbath.
> Light and extinguish no fires. Do no work or business. Spend no money.
> Only preselected and spontaneously motivated actions are allowed. No browsing. No lists.
> Light another candle after sundown Saturday to end.
