I think it's so important to set aside at least one day a month to shoot for your self.
Set your self freeeeeee!!! Pick a pet project and just have fun, don't be afraid to make a mistake, rediscover the photographer you really are or used to be in the days before 85% of your time as a photographer was spent in front of the computer.
Shoot something that turns you on, gets you going...

If you don't own a film camera a great place to start is KEH, you can get amazing deals on 35mm and medium format cameras, their quality ratings are very conservative, I just bought a Mamiya 645 1000s which is flawless for a fraction of it's original price. If your a Canon shooter then the 1n or the 1v are great buys and for Nikon you can pick up the amazing F5 or F100 for a song.
This year I'm getting my film from Freestyle and using Richard Photo Lab in Los Angeles for processsing and high-res scans whom by all accounts are the best film lab in the country and most of the best film wedding / portrait photographers in the country use them.
