So you are concentrating on making art more regularly? There are a few things you can do to make progress on this goal.
- Schedule time. Pick an easy goal first- making art once per week. Put it on your calendar or put a note somewhere where you see it every day. Once you get on a roll, try for 2x per week or a longer stretch of time.
- Tweak your mindset. Small shifts in the way you think about your art practice can really help. Decide on an intention you can repeat to yourself daily or do a mindfulness exercise and work on becoming the artist you are working to be.
- Set a priority for your art. My favorite tip is to change from saying "I don't have time to.... " when it comes to things you need to do, to saying "It's not a priority to..." Shifting that language will eliminate the anxiety and help you feel in your gut exactly what has priority on your time. Where does art-making fall on your list of priorities?
