What is a good thing to do when you can't practice for a couple days in a row in order to keep up good practicing habits?

Sing what you would have wanted to practice. Or visualize yourself playing what you would have practiced, fingering, phrasing, sound and all. This is not a new technique. The pianist Walter Gieseking learned most of his repertoire this way before even touching the keyboard. Glenn Gould would sit alone somewhere before a concert and play the entire performance in his mind this way. The imagination is the musicians most important tool.
