Hmm... I have an injury which makes me unable to draw a lot. In order to train at least my brain in seeing and remembering stuff, I read a lot of art books and tutorials on art/anatomy/perspective/color theory. So I can use the limited time that I can draw to do actually something useful. It's another way of approaching art, by analyzing art and training insight, and it takes considerable self discipline, but for me it does the trick. I even improved in the times that I couldn't draw.

Studies show that even when you stop physically practicing something, your brain continues to practice. I have heard that if u force yourself to keep going, it actually hurts more than helps. Take a break, u will be rusty but after u dust off the cobwebs u will notice u are sharper than ever! Works for me every time
