    Recharge one´s batteries

    Hello,


    In my native language there is a phrase which could be translated to recharge one´s batteries. It means to get one´s strength back, mental or physical, simply to relax.

    "The week was very hectical so I decided to visit our country cottage to recharge my batteries."


    Could I use it in English or does a similar idiom describing what I am talking about exist in English?


    Thank you very much.

    Change 'hectical' to 'hectic' and your sentence is colloquial in English.
