But no, I don't include "brush my teeth", "get up in the morning", "get dressed", "read newspaper", "get children from school"...
To take it to the extreme: I've been looking into the pomodoro technique lately, and have been (successfully) using the 25 minutes of work/5 minutes break principle. And no, I don't "plan" what i will be doing during my 5 minute break. Most of the breaks I just play one of my favourite songs and stroll around my office a little.
Sometimes free time just means that. Free time. Time you can relax knowing that you got everything else covered. Just the kind of "take a nap" free time, not the kind of "learning Japanese" free time.
