W.r.t. routines and habits

Here is a thing that my inner critic doesn’t want to admit and that constantly gets rejected by the productivity community: you don’t actually need to do something every day/week all the time to learn to do it. You can learn to draw, to code, speak a new language, whatever by studying it for a while, then not doing it, then picking it up again. It’s going to take longer, but you’re definitely not going to need to start from the scratch every time. It also will not reflect on your character in any way, even if it feels otherwise. You also don’t need to make everything a habit, it’s alright to just do things. That doesn’t apply if you want to have benefits from, say, doing sports regularly, because that’s not about learning things, but you can still learn a physical skill (dancing, exercise form). It’s like riding a bike.
