    think straight

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "think straight" implies in the following sentence:

    The only thing you need to be careful about is your health and stamina, A worn-out mind cannot think straight, so even if you are on a roll, it is important to get enough rest.


    Does "think straight" mean think clearly, think properly, i.e. that one's mind/brain works well?

    Yes; sleep deprivation can cause people to not think clearly.
