get away from it all

Escape one’s responsibilities, problems, or work. This phrase, enlarging on the much older to get away (from ca. 1300), dates only from the twentieth century. It generally denotes a temporary respite rather than a permanent escape, as in “I’m going off for a long weekend—I need to get away from it all.”
