Perhaps a little time away from the canvas will help

OH yes indeed. It helps me as it is like a muscle relax as well as help the mind clear out all the static or noise, and let it restart what is needed to be actually thought about.

Unfortunately nothing I listen to is giving me that spark.
Perhaps looking over some art might drive me...

As much as it sounds weird, I just start drawing and hope to get a hang of it. Nothing else works for me.

Not sure about you, but to me, hating drawing is a disaster worse than the end of the world. I'd say I'm relatively desperate at wanting to change things about it around... except that I'm also as lazy and as undisciplined as usual. If not that, I'd probably be drawing on a daily basis.
Anyway, my idea here is that if you do something every single day, you may just plain get used to doing that. Which is the effect I'm aiming for.

I've also seen how plenty of people recommend music and watching artwork.
Music may serve as a good inspiration source, but at least for me, it's useless at motivating. Though it is a good idea to play something on the background to calm down the mind.
As for the artwork... I'm mostly indifferent to my own works - they neither inspire me nor motivate me to do anything. Watching others' artwork to find motivation is something I wouldn't recommend to people like me - for me, it does absolutely the opposite: I end up being jealous of better artists and get bitter about how I barely got anywhere for 8 years already.

upd: just noticed how someone mentioned chatting. That's the closest one to working for me. I do chat with Kailey a lot lately, and I catch myself on a thought that I mostly wanna draw just to see what she thinks of it.
Though considering how you have a busy schedule, this option may not work for you. :( I don't work much, so I can afford myself to spend hours on blahblahblah.

I like to watch people stream. Seeing them draw makes me want to draw as well.

It's not that I don't want to, I can't get motivated because it always goes wrong ^^;
