I have stretches of time with great discipline to my trade plan, interspersed with bursts of emotion-driven trading. This is what I have been doing recently to address the problem:

-Review my trade plan every morning. (Reinforce my rules and principles.)
-Listen to background music that is interesting but not distracting. (Helps keep me away from boredom trading.)
-Taped a note reading “adhere to your rules” to my screen directly beneath my trading ladder.

So far it seems to be helping. I hope that at least one of these ideas holds value for you!
