  4. I don't watch TV or listen to music; do you want your heart surgeon watching TV while he's operating? To keep from getting stressed out, I get away from the screens so I'm not looking at any more price fluctuations. Of course this depends on your time frame... this is possible if you trade for 1 day or more moves. Besides trading I go to school so I sometimes can't watch the screens, nor do I want to... it can be an addictively bad habit especially if it causes overtrading.
    Strangely, I find myself eating less when I'm trading actively, so no problems on getting fat. If you eat when you're nervous or have anxiety, then weight gain is an issue.
