a shot in the arm

Meaning: You can say something is “a shot in the arm”  if it gives a person or an organisation renewed energy or enthusiasm.

For example:

  • Getting a grant from the Arts Council was a much-needed shot in the arm for the orchestra.

  • We all agree that the economy needs a shot in the arm, but we can’t agree on exactly what it should be.
