Today I’d like to share with you idioms on ‘Lifestyle’ theme:

After five years of life in the fast lane, Janie decided to give up her well-paid city job and start a new life in a small country village. But although she was pleased to escape from the rat race, she felt like a fish out of the water in the country. Now she’s back in the city, wiser for her experience.

• life in the fast lane – fast, high-pressure lifestyle

• rat race – competitive working life

fish out of the water - uncomfortable in a strange situation
