Rest & Relaxation [R&R]

Updated: 2017-12-14.

Rest & Relaxation, abbreviated as R&R, is a phrase meaning to take some time off from work and everyday life duties and responsibilities for some much-needed rejuvenation.

Common rest & relaxation techniques include taking time off for a vacation or holiday, going to a spa or massage parlor, and having a staycation.

It’s popularity as an idiom seems to stem from its consonance (two R’s), like bed & breakfast (b&b).
