Dristhi is the nose
It can become a habit quickly. Only a few days it might be a matter of concentration.
Dristi is not looking upwards, even though the body is moving upwards.
Dristi is the nose.
Most people frown the front when looking upwards. It's difficult to keep the face relaxed when looking upwards. This is why the nose is the much better dristi.
As mentioned already, it's a matter of concentration till it's a habit. Urdhva mukha svanasana is a counter pose and it's done rather often when practicing Ashtanga primary series. It makes sense to get into a good habit.
