My brother went to a seminary and I visited him once for about a week. There is a schedule, but as others have said it is just a schedule, so that there is order in the day.
They do have time to read, use the restroom, take showers, write, brush teeth, everything. They would also take some days to go out of the routine. This was Legionaires of Christ, they would play soccer, capture the flag, (this was done in the woods, reminded me of war in the way they played it, they got pretty dirty sometimes) take hikes, and other things. I am not sure if all places is so much like this but the point is even though there was a schedule and they stuck to it, they did have time to themselves.
I recommend looking at places where everyone isn’t above 40 years old, there is plenty of great, vibrant orders out there.
