another hint for developing self-control

Something I wanted to add to my post on practical hints for developing self-control and never did, from Pulpit Magazine:

Practice self-denial. Learn to say no to your feelings. Learn to do what you know to be right even if you don’t feel like doing it. Sometimes it’s even beneficial to deny yourself things that are acceptable to have, like a doughnut in the morning or dessert after dinner. Exercising such self-restraint helps you develop the habit of keeping other things under control. Cultivating discipline in the physical realm will help you become disciplined in your spiritual life.
It's point no. 6 from a list of tips for self-discipline. The other 6 points are worth a look too.
