were eating cakes together,

Find a place where you are alone and train yourself in this way:
When you breathe in, experience breathing in. When you breathe out, be fully conscious that you are breathing out. If you cherish and practice this, it will bear great fruit. Whatever you are doing and wherever you are, you will find steadiness, calm, and concentration if you become conscious of your breathing.
From "Majjhima Nikaya" of the Buddha
