Recharge your batteries this weekend! Rest and relaxation idioms
Actualizado: 29 oct 2022
Since we have a long weekend coming up in Chile let's talk about rest and relaxation!
I’m planning on recharging my batteries (1) during the long weekend. If you’re anything like me, you’re one of those people who keeps on going and sometimes forgets to take a break (2) from work. Although, I definitely make it a priority to disconnect on the weekends. So, you can usually find me hiking in the mountains or hanging out (3) with friends on the weekend. But sometimes I just want to take it easy (4) and stay at home reading a book or watching a series on Netflix. Now, I definitely have a blast (5) and let my hair down (6) when I hang out with my friends at a barbeque or go to a party but I like to try and find a balance.
1 - Recharge your batteries (renovar tus energías): rest and relax in order to regain strength
I really need to recharge my batteries this weekend so I'm going to sleep in a lot.
2 - Take a break (descansar/tomar un descanso): to rest, stop for a moment, pause or relax
The team needs to take a break and stop working for a while. Let’s go out to lunch!
3- Hang out (with) (pasar tiempo con): to spend time with friends or family members
We just hung out for a bit at the park last weekend.
4 - Take it easy (tomarse con calma): to relax and avoid hard work
The doctor told him to take it easy for a while until his wound heals.
5 - Have a blast (pasarla genial): to have an extreme amount of fun doing something
We had a blast at Laura’s birthday party last weekend!
6 - Let your hair down (disfrutarse y relajarse): to relax and enjoy yourself
Long weekends are great because you can really let your hair down and just relax.
