A creative habit is supposed to ignite the sparks of creativity, and also to make you feel calm in the fast-paced world. So try doing a creative habit for 100 hours before hopping to the next one.
The first step towards building creative habits is making a conscious decision to prioritize creativity in our lives. This decision requires a shift in mindset, recognizing that creativity is not a luxury but a necessity to bring peace and a sense of fulfillment to our lives.
Your creative habits may be small. but keeping the files either physically or digitally scanning them, adding a little date on each day, or writing down things that you are feeling at that moment can count as documenting your work.

When you think of starting a creative habit and you think to yourself - whether it is the right time. This post is to help you tell that the best time to start is now.
