Prof is a very clear communicator. Maybe a little too slow for some. Somewhat redundant, too. However, some good advice for an area where many of us struggle. Best ideas: Self-control requires energy that can be used up, so when you're spent, do some refreshing activities. We can exercise it to become better at it, so practice. We can pre-decide how to handle recurring problems, so think ahead. Make decisions when you're fresh: never when tired.
