Inceptive plus habitual?

The action in question is going to happen continually or habitually, so that characterizes it as habitual.  The
"from now on" or "from then on" part focuses on the start of the action.  So, for example, I wasn't born checking
my e-mail, but I now do it regularly.  Thus, there was a time when the habitual action of me checking my e-mail
began (even though I didn't know it would then), and so the inceptive focuses on that part of the habitual act.
The "from then on" vs. "from now on" part is just a difference in tense.

That's *one* way to conceptualize it, anyway.
