Take regular breaks and stretch. Set a timer if necessary.
Make sure you eat and drink enough while you're working. You can have water nearby and put healthy snacks within reach.
Go to bed on time, instead of pulling an all-nighter to finish a drawing. (Trust me, all-nighters wreak havoc on your system).
Stay healthy! :heart:

I am guilty of working on a project until I can't move due to being in the same position for hours on end! These are all good reminders to make sure the body is being taken care of while the mind is concentrating on a single pursuit.

Yep! And I should be stricter about setting them. Yesterday was another drawing night until 5am, yikes. :faint:

All of them!! Although, I must admit I break most of them... either I get too into what I'm drawing and I forget I need to eat, drink (and sometimes even breathe! For some reason I hold my breath when I draw) or sleep.
I also need a massage really badly... it stings...

Big Fool Emoji-29 (I'm done) [V4] by Jerikuto   Yes, I agree with all of those but I don't do any of them. How ironic.

I forget to take breaks too, which is why I've started setting a whole lotta timers. I'm still struggling to try and stick to all of these as best as possible, but a reminder can be handy from time to time I reckon. :nod:

I have some alarms for stuff I gotta do and even then I forget, especially if I'm drawing at the time. I turn them off and instantly forget about it...
I really need to find a good system for me, lol
