1  unwind

例句: I’m beat. We need to unwind. Let’s get a drink.

我累死了,得好好放松下。我们出去喝一杯吧。

Wind 有上紧钟表的发条的意思,那么unwind也就是“松开、解开”,用在这里就是“放松”的意思。

2) mellow out

You need to mellow out a bit. Don’t get yourself so overworked.

3) let your hair down

“Oh, boy. I forgot to bring my wallet in the morning”

“Look into my eyes and say that again”

Vincent那晚加班准备第二天的简报,他的同事走到他的位置上,叫他出去吃点夜宵.

 “诶,别这么卖力,做劳模又不给奖金,歇一会儿。出去吃点东西”
