A caffeine free day is exactly what it sounds like - a day with no caffeine. That means no caffeinated coffees, teas, or energy drinks. Though caffeine can have positive side effects, taking a break from caffeine can also greatly benefit your body. 

Caffeine is a natural stimulant that is absorbed in the bloodstream and helps to keep your brain alert and focused while preventing tiredness. By cutting out caffeine for the day, your body uses its natural resources to focus while staving off anxiety often caused by caffeine.
