Disconnect emotionally and refocus.

How? Curious, what is your method or routine?
Here is mine (ask yourself H.A.L.T. throughout the day):

1. H.A.L.T = Hungry? Angry? Lonely (emotional)? Tired?
2. Mentally rehearse = Be prepared for when your emotions strike. Anticipate, plan for it.
3. Positive imagery = Trading to win. Visualise it.
4. Induce relaxation = HRV. Biofeedback (heart monitor, pressure monitor). Breathing exercises.

I use this routine and yes I have a HRM and blood pressure monitor which I use once a day to keep track of my health over time. I got this from Andrew Menaker. Trader/Psychologist. Hes got some good stuff, check out his youtube vids.
