On sustainable grinding and taking a break

“Is taking breaks useful? How do I take a break in fighting games? There are times where I’m unmotivated to play, but at the same time I know playing when unmotivated is important to keep the muscle memory and to keep up your ‘B level’ of play and make you more consistent. Also, I feel guilty when I have the time but don’t have the drive to play.

Sincerely,

Grind Broken”
