I think on intentionally breathing and allowing my body to ease into each pose with each breath. If I feel pain identify if it's tightness or doing the pose improperly and gently correct myself without criticism. I think to challenge myself to go deeper into each pose with each breath to release my body from being sedentary and connect with each part that is being stretched.

Generally "Ow, ow, ow" or "What a nice way to energize/ wind down", depending on the day and the stretches I decide to do.
Stretching is the best thing for me because it is actually the only time I don't have things on my mind but I'm only aware of my body, how it feels what I want to do next. It's the perfect meditation
