Balancing exercises with drawing for fun

So, I am in the middle of the 250 boxes challenge and I am trying to also spend my time drawing anything just for the sake of it, as suggested.
What is kinda of annoying me is that while I can already see some improvement on my boxes, it has been really hard to relate what i've learned with any other drawings I do. It's as if my brain has two separate regions labeled "drawing for fun" and "drawabox" which are mutually exclusive...
Today I started thinking that it may be because most of the non-drawabox drawings I've been doing tend to be more stylized things, such as maps or little icons.
Then, I got curious and decided to come here and ask: what you guys usually draw besides the lessons? And did you ever had a clicking moment when you looked at your drawing and thought "now this is better"? Or maybe it's one of those situations where you only perceive that you improved when stopping and looking back...?
