I've been getting worse at League of Legends and I cannot explain why. I know everything that is going wrong, yet I fail to fix the issues. My life style has no changed, I get plenty of sleep, and I keep practicing. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to do to get better again.

My list of skills I have lost recently...

I used to get decent cs (~85+ at 10 minutes in normals)...
Now ~65 at 15 minutes.

I used to call mia and be able to ping jungle ganks for all lanes (as adc/ support)...
Now I don't even notice my own lane being ganked.

I used to zone really well in my lane as both ADC and support...
Now I get zoned.

I used to boost myself up to playing 1500-1700 players in normals...
Now I play with 1200-1400's.

I used to kite like a pro...
Now I cancel my attack animation too early when I move.

I used to be able to keep timers of blue/red/dragon/baron...
Now I can barely remember to call dragon timer 1 minute before it is up.

I used to always stick with my team...
Now I always seem to be shopping when a fight breaks out.

I used to know how to use my skills to the maximum efficiency...
Now I waste them when I don't need them and don't use them when I need them.

I used to be able to manage the creep waves to maximize exp and deny enemy exp...
Now I can't even push the waves to their tower before they get back.

I used to bait out enemy skill shots and dodge them...
Now I just get hit multiple times in a row.

I used to be able to harrass in lane when they last hit...
Now I just get harrassed.

I used to know when to go for certain objectives based upon where the enemies were...
Now I just derp around in the jungle.

I used to consistently keep 3-5 wards up along with warding as I traveled with my team...
Now I let my wards fall occasionally or run into the enemy jungle when I try to ward.

I used to call out and time enemy wards...
Now I never see them warding.

All you can really do is keep all of that in mind when you play and practice.

Though when you try to keep everything in mind, you end up focusing on one thing at a time rather than doing it all by habit.

For example... basic laning.
If you focus on last hitting more than habit then you stand a good chance of being poked and losing more map awareness. If you focus more on map awareness, you are worse at zoning and last hitting.

A proper approach would be sequencing all of the above into an ordered schedule of operations based upon minion health, enemy movements, and knowledge of enemy jungler. The issue is I don't seem to be able to operate these simple tasks together anymore.
