Jesus said to his disciples:

Come apart and rest.

How would I then say this?

Yes, I took the day off and now I am well-rested.

Could it be "Estoy bien descansado"?

    Could you clarify? The title asks a question but the text of the question seems to have been cut off.

  • Reopening, although I think there's little here than just a plain translation that can be accomplished with a dictionary: (to rest - descansar](wordreference.com/es/translation.asp?tranword=rest)

In Spain I should say "he descansado bien" (I am well-rested).

Descansar is usually used as verb. I think I can count with the fingers of my hand the times I see it as adjective.


The most common way is to say "Ya descansé", but also you can say "Estoy descansado" or "Estoy bien descansado" (like well rested)

  • The use of "Ya descansé" sounds like a latinamerican thing, in Spain i don't think you'll hear this as often as you seem to believe (Source: living in Spain).

A good translation to "Yes, I took the day off and now I am well-rested." is this:

Si, me tomé el día libre y ahora estoy (bien) repuesto/recuperado

where recuperado means recovered which works the same as rested
