Mensagem:  How about "wind down" ?

wind down = encerrar, relaxar / encerrar um negócio ou projeto ( com o sentido de focar no negócio ou projeto na fase final até o encerramento )

As for the other idiom you asked about I couldn't find it either.

Like we learn over and over in this forum if a word or idiom is obscure we shouldn't use it, the reason is that we want to become effective ESL speakers sharpening our language skills and making communication with the native speakers easier to flow.
