chill up


Senior Member
A friend tell you: "Hey! don't you think you need a rest?".
And you say: "Chill up"

By the way, would be better if I write "a rest" or "to rest"?

    I haven't heard this expression. I'm guessing it might be the same as "chill out" which means to "calm down" or "back off".

    About 'to rest' or 'a rest' in this context, either one is fine unless additional context suggests "a rest from something". Rather than rest as in take a nap or relax.
