Since this specifically has something to do with jiu jitsu and totally justifies my need for sleep/naps, I’m totally going to share it with you.
Dirty White Belt has an article on the importance of sleep and how it helps you learn more importantly how it helps you forget certain things. It kind of falls in line with what I’ve always said about sleeping and dreaming: it’s the equivalent of a computer going through defragmentation. Throughout the day our brain deals with a ton of information, and when we sleep it gives the brain time to sort through the truly essential information we need to keep, and the stuff that could be considered unnecessary or incomplete can be discarded.
Anyway, check it out and have a great day everyone!
