It's confused "Well, I think you should take it easy for now till you're sure". In this sentence, there is "for now". "for" is prep,but "now" is adv. why do they use together? what's the meanning?

now 是时间副词, 表时间状态, 意思是"现在". 在 for now 的情况下, now 可理解为"当下的状态", 属于延伸意, 具有名词属性. 其实, 在中文里不也有词性转化的现象吗? 跟语言在逻辑上较劲很辛苦的.

The "now" also can use as a noun form. I think "for now till ... " here is phrase , it means time from (one time ) till (another time). the meanning of the sentence is : 好的,我想在你弄明白之前,你应该放轻松些。
