Challenge #04029-K011: For Want of a Nail

They're a workaholic, it seems. They were not a deregger, though their great-grandparents were. They just had this bad habit of working nonstop and forgetting to take breaks to rest once in a while. Problem is, this lead to health issues from overwork. -- Anon Guest

Generational trauma is a hell of a thing. As a Human Companion, it's vital to understand the contributing factors that create hazards to your Human's health. Thus, a well-trained Human Companion is the first responder and expected to intercept and interfere in their Human's self-harming habits.

Challenge #03343-I055: For Peace of Mind

Please show us a human in Alliance space that does regular yoga to handle severe anxiety. -- Anon Guest

Human Juel was in the midst of their Pretzeling. Twisting her body around in seemingly awkward combinations and breathing in a slow and deliberate manner. Companion Mitr was still trying to comprehend the exercise.
