Drawing routine?

I often succumb to artblock and go long periods of time without drawing (outside of art class,) which I know is a horrible way to improve. Does anyone have a daily drawing routine that helps them get around a lack of inspiration?

Cuppa coffee and rage...jk When I got motivated to go to art school...I knew I had to keep going...even if I didn't want to... I would scribble until I started to see stuff in the scribbles or an idea would pop in my head. Life drawing is a good way to prevent burn out.(do it every day for 4hr for 10 years to become an artist Vroubels would say) Library raids for art books... Also trips to the zoo or art museums can restart the fire. You'll figure it out. Peace.

Sarah,
 
I always draw after my daily waking up routine and before anything else. This gives me enough time to wake up while eating and things of that nature, but then gets my mind working before I actually get to work. It can be anything but just get some ideas out on paper or digital then move on with the day. It is sort of like clearing out the cobwebs in your mind.
 
Also I ALWAYS have a pocket sketchbook and pen on me, (even when I know I am not going to use it) and when I can help it take them out of my pocket before my phone if I have a spare moment. Even if it's just to doodle a smiley face it doesn't have to be a fully rendered drawing.
 
I hope this helps, all the best!
