Listen in to the conversations of students drinking coffee at Free Speech Movement Café, sit in on a discussion after a chemical engineering exam or even peep the UC Berkeley meme page, and you will find one strong commonality: UC Berkeley students are stressed. And not only are we stressed, but we also love talking about how stressed we are. Discussions overheard throughout campus often revolve around the insane amount of Foucault reading we had to do, how difficult the Computer Science 61A midterm was or how many hours it took to complete a single math problem set. This is why it is imperative for students to take time during the summer to decompress and focus on things other than our studies. The upcoming warm months provide an ample opportunity for unwinding, slowing down and recharging our batteries to face the fall semester with the best possible mindset. Here are some recommendations from The Daily Californian’s photo department on the best ways to unwind this summer.
