Recognize yourself slipping backwards before it's too late. Write a list of the signs you are slipping back into old habits. For me.. I know I'm becoming depressed again when I start leaving things on the floor in my room and tossing clothes around. I have to force myself clean my room. To prevent his now I've put a note beside my door that I read every morning. It says have you cleaned your room? I roll my eyes every time because it's the last thing k wanna do first thing in the morning but it only takes 5 or less minutes compared to letting it all pile up and having to spend 2 hours cleaning. It's worth it and makes me feel accomplished. I start the day stress free knowing I did something positive.
If your thing is spending too much time on GaG or playing too much video games then set a timer. Any more than 3 hours of "screen time" a day is considered unhealthy. If you spend like.. Allllll day doing this then to start out just cut the time down each day as much as you can. Don't just do a cold cut from 16 hours to 3 because you're going to feel dissatisfied and antsy. Eventually work your way to only 3 hours a day. There are tons of other awesome things you could be doing with your valuable time :)
As for emotional eating I suggest digging deeper and doing some self research. Why are you feeling emotional? Learn more about yourself. In the mean time, change what you're eating. If you're binge eating at least try to binge on healthy food.
