The manual you thought was handed out that day you were sick - #NaPoWriMo22 Day 13

First thing’s first, stretch.
Get some water—hydrate.
Move a little more. The body’s. made for it, needs it.
Next, stillness. Make time for it.
Everything that comes after
will be grateful. No matter
what the mind says right now.
Keep at it with the water.
Move even more. Find
more stillness. Call a friend.
Don’t forget to read. Your
work will be grateful for it.
Stretch again. Forgive someone.
Like yourself. Do that every
hour, maybe. Hydrate!
This is the one shot you’ve got—
Don’t forget to stretch.
