I swear my brain feels too tired to think most of the time. I used to day dream and think of funny scenarios. Now I just have one thought at a time and it cuts off if it gets too detailed. Is a tired brain/slow cognition part of the blank mind symptom?

You my friend are over-worked. I bet anything you have been constantly thinking about this condition. I'm gonna tell you what I've read and heard before and what many people, at first glance, call it ridiculous: stop thinking about it.

Yup, easier said than done! I know.

You want to "think most of the time" try instead, to accept this condition for now and see it as a transient thing. Also you mentioned daydreamer, this is quite typical, especially personalities like you and I who love to daydream. We are too stuck within our heads, time to get out and see and live the world. Make those dreams/fntasy come true.

The only thing (aside from time) I did that TRULY helped diminish DP, sluggish brain, brain fog/head pressure, you name it, was NoFap. Everything else was just a stopgap measure to help alleviate symptoms but didn’t really do anything about the feelings of unreality.

So tired of these "1 SECRET TRICK FIXES EVERYTHING"

I've gone weeks/months on nofap, only because i didnt have the energy or desire to do it.

Also "Stop thinking about it" is ridicously pointless. Yes, we are all 24/7 trying NOT to think about it. Just because it's true doesn't make it a useful tool.

I'm sorry it didn't work for you. I can only speak to my experiences. DP seems to be similar but at the same time, uniquely different to each person.

Yes this is exactly me.

I literally am incapable of daydreaming / just randomly thinking about anything. Seriously. At best maybe I'll hear a random song lyric but it's never a total distraction, like I can't visualize things in my head or really think about anything deeply.

How so when you suffer from brain fog? from not being able to concentrate? "Stop thinking about it" doesn't work. It's like forcing yourself to not think about the elephant but instead you end up thinking more about it.

I have anxiety sometimes but generally not so bad. My brain isn't focusing its energy elsewhere, there simply is no energy.

So think of other mammals then. It's not about completely cutting yourself off from your thoughts. I have DP but in these last couple of weeks, it has gotten better and most of the times I don't notice it until, well, I actually think about it. Sure, I will, here and now, check in to see if DP is there and I think that is one of my setbacks.
There are things I did, however, to alleviate the symptoms and to improve overall health.

The most important part is your thoughts. Maybe it's wrong for me to say "stop thinking about it". But maybe "start thinking about everything else".
Start thinking about goals, self-analysis, what makes you tick and what makes you laugh. Explore your surroundings and just engage in the open world.
I'm not saying this will lift your DP but believe me, it can help. Accept the Dp as it is now, so yes, it is in your mind but it doesn't mean you have to constantly think about it.
