Calm down…

Hang loose…

Loosen up…

Mellow out…

Settle back…

Take ten… or

Take Five’ if into Jazz…

Take a load off…

Unwind…

Wind down…

But this Grandfather clock doesn’t work any more!

“Dude” was once an insult referring to the city slickers just pretending to be cowboys. It’s pretty much a harmless word nowadays of course, but for a while, it was an insult, albeit pretty mild as insults go.

The female equivalent was “dudette” or “duds.” But theses both have fallen into disuse and “dude” is now also used as a unisex term. This more general meaning of “dude” started creeping into the mainstream in the mid-1970s.

    1. Then BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT

      Deep breathing soothes the body and mind – especially lengthening the exhalation which is known for its relaxation effects. Try this easy exercise to instantly chill out: breathe in to the count of five, hold in for five, and then slowly exhale while counting to five again.

      Do this til the cows come home or fives minutes. Which ever comes first!
