Too much chess

I look back at all chess games I play win, lose, or draw. I notice that I tend to over think my moves sometimes. My opponent makes the mistake of putting his piece into a position that it is unprotected and in my line of fire. Over thinking my next move I make I end up defending one of my own pieces becoming completely oblivious to my mistake. My point is that when you play chess on a regular basis you tend to overlook moves you normally wouldnt if it was fresh on your mind. Seeing a chess board everyday for the past year has lost me many games as well as win some. I tend to take breaks every so often and set down the mouse, do not touch it for a day or two. When you return to Chesshere your mind will be rejuvanated and ready to think out your next move.

I could't agree more. Have been making just those kind of mistakes lately.

I come on here everyday. Maybe that's why my ratings went up around 100 in my first month and have just been gradually declining since.

It seems that you're trying to improve your chess skill with constant playing and while you're doing that you're repeating same mistakes. Obviously while you're fresh you're performing better. Try different approach. First, choose a few openings and stick to them (develop variations till move 6). There are good opening explorers on net. Second, improve your tactics, e.g positional play. There is an excellent tactics trainer on www.chess.com. Third, play against strong players. Playing against low rated players will not improve your chess skill. They are making many blunts.
