    let me know how it works for you πŸ™‚ You can get practice by trying it with
    small things, at first… like when you are meditating, riding the wave of
    the urge to scratch an itch or move, etc. every time you practice, it
    strengthens the neural pathways that help you become more disciplined, so
    even if you ultimately give in and have that cake after 15 minutes, the 15
    minute delay was time well invested and it gets easier over time
