making habits stick

2016-06-10 at 00-48-11Sketchbooks in my car, in my room, in my kitchen, in my bag. I am trying to make mark making easier to do. Instead of scrolling through my phone while waiting how about a pencil and paper? It feels better. Creating always feels better than passively consuming for me. I have felt shame at how much time I have spent on my device. I am trying to make night time sketching before bed a habit. I used to journal. Sometimes I still do but it’s not a daily thing. In the past several months a different habit has emerged. I say good night to my teens and tell them not to stay on their phones, iPads whatever because it will disrupt their sleep! Then I go to my room and get ready for bed, all cozy, I reach for my iPhone. eek! I spend too much time scrolling through instagram. A week ago I decided enough. I am done with that. Sketching in bed instead. I have stuck to that pretty much, I did fall off the wagon a few nights ago. I have been sleeping better.
