PHRASAL VERBS FOR RELAXING (TAKE TIME OUT)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, readers! And happy Friday to you.

Today is our last lesson for the Phrasal-Verbs-for-Relaxing week.

To tell you the truth, this next one isn’t technically a phrasal verb, but it's an idiom for relaxing. It's the phrase TO TAKE TIME OUT (to do something / for something)

Definition: To set aside time to do something important, usually something that benefits you mentally. 

Example 1: Our days are busy, but we always take time out to watch the sunset

Example 2: You need to remember to take time out for yourself, even when you have so much to do for your family. 

Example 3: My boss always takes time out to ask us how we are doing. It's very kind of her. 

That's all for this week. Did you learn a new way to express relaxation? I hope so; and I hope that you have a great weekend and can take some time out to do something you love.

PHRASAL VERBS FOR RELAXING (VEG OUT)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome back, Daily Vitamin readers! It's our fourth day of Phrasal Verbs for Relaxing and we are learning the phrase TO VEG OUT.

Like the previous three phrasal verbs that we've seen, this one is colloquial.

Definition: To do nothing that requires energy; to relax (often watching television). 

Example 1: I'm so tired. I just want to veg out tonight. 

Example 2: I need to exercise. This last week I've just been vegging out

This colloquial phrasal verb is also INTRANSITIVE

That's all for today. Have you had some time to veg out this week? Take some time to relax, if you can. It's good for you. :-)

Have a great rest of your day!
