Hello everyone! Justin here and welcome
back to another Bizmates for Beginners
video lesson where every week we
introduce a new idiom, phrase, or expression
that you can use in your daily business
conversation. This week everyone we are
going to learn: Stop And Smell The Roses.
Okay, so it's an interesting expression.
Let's find out what it means and how to
use it. But first as always, let's begin
with a quick review of last week's
lesson. Okay everyone, so imagine I say:
What you're thinking about changing jobs?
But you don't really know yet, so you
want me to keep this information kind of
secret. So how do you say that using the
expression from last week? We'll give you
five seconds. You ready? Okay, go!
Alright and time is up if you said: Yeah maybe.
But please keep it on the down-low.
Alright then, that's exactly right. Well
done, thank you for remembering last
week's class. Okay, let's move on to: Stop
And Smell The Roses. Now this is what I
sometimes hear. Okay, so it is a really
really busy time at the office and I
need to come to the office even on the
weekends. So I talked to my good friend
and colleague Taro. I say: Taro, yeah I
think I need to come to the office again
this weekend. There are so many things I
need to do. Just not enough time.
Taro says: Again?! Justin you should
Okey, yeah I agree relaxation is very
important. Thank you for the advice Taro.
Now he said you should relax, yeah this
is fine, it's simple. But if you wanted to
add a little spice to your English and
use a more interesting expression, you
can say: Yeah again Justin!? You really
should just you know stop and smell the
roses. Okay that means just take some
time to relax. Don't always think about
work. You need to enjoy the beauty of
life. Just enjoy the simple things. Take
it easy, relax, go for a walk stop, and
smell the roses.
Okay, so I know all of us are very very
busy right. We work very hard every day
but it's very important to just know how
to enjoy life. Do take it easy sometimes
to stop and smell the roses. Okay
Alright, so pronunciation. It's as you see
it here, so please repeat after me:
You should stop and smell the roses.
Alright very good. Okay now after my sentence here. Yeah I think I need to come to the office again this
Okay. Again?! Yeah, you should take
it easy and relax. Stop and smell the roses
sometimes. Alright? Okay, so please remember
this for next time. Okay everyone?
Alright, our bonus question this week is
another way to say: They are rich. They
have a lot of money. So if you know how
to say this in a more natural way, please
leave it in the comments below. If you
don't know what it is but you are
curious. Well we covered it in one of our
previous video lessons so take a look if
you have the time. Okay everyone, so that
is it for me this week. Thank you very
