Hi What does "laid back" mean?. I think it has something to do with not being very busy , or relaxing. Someone was saying, " we are so laid back here"

laid back


It means very relaxed and casual.
"laid back" - not easily excited

An interesting question is whether this expression has now finally enshrined "laid" as the 'real' past participle of "to lie". I don't think the expression "lain back" exists. Or are we to take "laid" as passive, something which has been done to the laid-back person?

it means that you're very easy-going, you don't get mad easily, and you go with the flow.

 Some people like a lot of excitement on their vacations. Not me. Give me a laid-back trip to the beach, with a gentle breeze and a good book.
