Every other Wednesday, we will be sharing tips and activities to help you de-stress and center yourself, regardless of where you are studying from.

Host your own study jam by using study session videos of your favorite spots in the library. The videos utilize the Pomodoro Technique to help increase productivity by incorporating a good balance of focus time and breaks. View the full playlist of backgrounds on YouTube or Google Drive (you must be signed into G Drive with your AD login).


If it suits your study style, we recommend playing lo-fi music as well, such as playlists from LoFi Girl and Café Music BGMC, or check out what's playing on KSDT (UCSD's student-run radio).
