Trade higher time frames

One thing that has helped me, and I'm surprised nobody or not that many people have mentioned it, is to trade on higher time frames. This will definitely slow you down! It will also reduce your trading costs (commission and slippage), subject you to less random noise, and requires less time staring at charts. Win win win!
