Happy Friday: Dark Night Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

For anyone who thinks playing jiu jitsu videos on their big screen TV while they are sleeping in order to learn some sweet new moves, I have some bad news for you: you may be hurting your jiu jitsu game by not letting your body fully rest.

A recent article posted in IFLScience outlines just what happens to your body while sleeping in the dark, and the sorts of issues arise when those processes are interrupted due to the presence of light when you sleep.

“The changes that result from exposure to electric light at night have biological connections to disease and conditions that are common in the modern world today including obesity, diabetes, cancer and depression.”

So do your body and jiu jitsu a favor and sleep in the dark, and have a great weekend everyone!
