Why You Should Stack Habit Upon Habit

Do you have any daily habits? Maybe they even feel like little rituals in your day?
Like: making yourself a nice cup of tea in the afternoon, refreshing your brain with a workout, or kickstarting your day with strong coffee - to name just a few.
If you want to create a habit, it may help to stack that habit onto another good habit. For example: If you enjoy drinking your morning coffee, why don't you add to the ritual by taking the time to make a drawing?
It'll be a lot easier than starting a habit from scratch, when you link it to another one.
If you miss a day, don't beat yourself up about it. It's okay. Just make sure that the day after, you get right back into it again. The longer you wait picking it back up, the harder it will be. However, once your creative habit is in your system, you'll start missing it whenever you don't keep to it.
It's a win-win situation!
I hope this helps you to make awesome art!
