A few ideas that have helped me:
1. Always anaylize your moves with a standard chess set, don't just stare at the computer screen.
2. Keep your game load low. Too many games can cut your quality of moves. (I learned this one the hard way!)
3. Balance your study and playing time. You need both in order to improve.
4. Be paitent with yourself. Chess is easy to play, but very difficult to play well.
