To chill out is a common phrasal verb which means to relax. As I’m a bit of a beach bum and an adrenalin junkie I can chill out by sunbathing at the beach or by doing a risky sport such as scuba diving.
How do you chill out? Perhaps you’re a book worm and you chill out by reading a page-turning bestseller. Or, if you’re a bit of a culture vulture, you might chill out by visiting an art gallery or a museum.
The English language has a lot of different ways to describe the action of relaxing, for example:
- To switch off
- To take the load off
- To lay back
- To unwind
