Is this really a thing?

It’s not the first time that I read something about this, but I’ve never encountered an explanation about the process.

Is there some specific research which corroborates this?

One could also argue that there is such a thing as “decision work-out” for example, where by making lots of decisions throughout the day you train yourself to make better and faster choices for subsequent decisions.
