  • Hey, everyone.

  • I'm Michael, and this is Happy English.

  • For today's English lesson, we're

  • going to look at some slang and idioms

  • that we use to talk about being relaxed.

  • When you're calm, or you're relaxed, you can always say,

  • ah, I'm calm, or I'm relaxed.

  • But don't you want to use some more colorful English slang?

  • I'm sure you do.

  • Let's check it out.

  • The first one is chill or chill out.

  • When it's cold, your body and any animal's body

  • moves a lot more slowly, so we use the phrase chill

  • or chill out to mean be relaxed or calm.

  • Chill and chill out can be used either

  • as an adjective or a verb.

  • It's my day off, so I'm going to chill out today.

  • I think I'm just going to chill today.

  • Since it's my day off, I think I'm just going to chill out.

  • I chilled out at home last night watching TV.

  • It was great.

  • I just chilled out, and watched TV.

  • I chilled out watching TV last night.

  • It was great.

  • My friend Jack is a pretty chill guy.

  • Nothing really bothers him.

  • That guy Jack is so chill.

  • You're going to love hanging out with Jack.

  • He is really chill.

  • He's chill.

  • He's totally chill.

  • Mellow out is also a verb that means to relax.

  • Jenny was mellowing out on the sofa this afternoon.

  • Yeah, I think she was just mellowing out.

  • Oh my god, I had such a tough day today.

  • I need to mellow out.

  • I think I'm going to go home, get changed, and then just

  • mellow out all night.

  • I had a really tough day today.

  • I just want to take it easy.

  • I'm going to go home tonight and just take it easy.

  • After work, I'm going to go right home,

  • and just take it easy.

  • I love to take it easy on the weekends.

  • Sometimes, you might need to tell somebody to relax.

  • In that case, here are some phrases you can use.

  • Cool your jets.

  • Cool your jets.

  • This is a little bit of a 1980s sounding phrase,

  • but you can still use it to tell somebody to relax.

  • Hey, cool your jets.

  • I think you just need to cool your jets a little bit, OK?

  • Give it a rest.

  • Come on, John, just give it a rest.

  • Hey, hold your horses.

  • Hold your horses.

  • Hold your horses.

  • This sounds like the 1800s, and it's

  • a little bit of an old fashioned phrase,

  • but you might hear that on a TV program, or in the movies,

  • or if you want to sound a little bit nostalgic,

  • then you can tell somebody, hey, hold your horses.

  • Jack, hold your horses.

  • Hey, keep your shirt on.

  • Hey, keep your shirt on.

  • Keep your shirt on.

  • When someone gets really upset, they

  • might decide to punch someone and maybe in the old days

  • they would take their shirt off to do that.

  • So if you want somebody to relax a little bit

  • and not be so upset, you would tell

  • them, hey, keep your shirt on.

  • Come on, Jack, keep your shirt on.

  • Hey, just keep your shirt on, OK?

  • Hey, simmer down.

  • Simmer is when you're cooking something

  • and you reduce the heat to the lowest level possible.

  • That's simmer.

  • So when you lower your tension down to the lowest point,

  • you simmer down.

  • Hey, simmer down, OK?

  • Just simmer down.

  • Jack, I think you need to simmer down, OK?

  • Just simmer down.

  • Hey, why don't you just take a chill pill, OK?

  • A chill pill, we imagine there is some kind of pill

  • that someone can take to make them chill or relaxed.

  • hey, take a chill pill.

  • I think you need to take a chill pill.

  • I think you better take a chill pill.

  • Hey, how about you?

  • Have you chilled out today?

  • Do you know anybody that needs to take a chill pill?

  • Leave a comment below and let us know.

  • Hey, thanks for studying, and I'll see you next time

  • right here at Happy English.

Hey, everyone.
