Hello-hello! Today I’m gonna explain you a very easy idiom ‘Sleep on it!’

That means that if you can’t make a decision right now in the evening, for example, you just say ‘Mm..I will sleep on it and I will decide tomorrow’

Or when you’re not sure about something and you ask for advice, and somebody says ‘You know…you better sleep on it. You will decide tomorrow’

Let’s see some examples

‘Will I do this to myself again?

 Will I do this to myself again? 

Sleep on it, I should just sleep on it

Sleep on it…

So I slept and I slept and I slept

With you’ 


And the last one ‘ I can’t decide which car to choose. This Ferrari is gorgeous, and this simple Mercedes is also gorgeous. So which should I choose? –Sleep on it. You’ll decide tomorrow!’

That’s all! Bye-bye!
