Hi there! :)

Which one of the terms "loose" and "laid-back" would you use reffering to an atmosphere, work intensity and so on in casual coversations between you and your co-workers, friends like this:

X: Uhhh, so much work to do. We are in for a mountain of appointments today.
Y: Chill out, if we go all out today, the tommorow's day will be more loose, leastwise a little bit!

Y: Chill out, if we go all out today, the tommorow's day will be more laid-back, leastwise a little bit!

Many thanks in advance! :)

    Without a doubt: "laid back". = relaxed; at ease; unhurried.

    A loose atmosphere could have the meaning of "an atmosphere of casual depravity and immorality." (Mind you, it would make an interesting day at work. :rolleyes: )

    I know that it's "tommorow" but I wanted to emphasize the DAY, isn't it possible? As far as a question "more loose/looser" goes I read that both are acceptable and often interchangeable. :)
