Dead butt syndrome - yes, it's a thing
After 14 months of working at home and sitting on a wooden chair for most of the day, I'm not surprised that it happened. My butt was sore...ALL the time. At first I thought I needed a new couch and maybe even a new mattress, but then it dawned on me that your butt normally shouldn't hurt by sitting down. I Googled it, yes I know, and ran across a few articles on something called "dead butt syndrome".
After reading up on it, I've added more stretches during the work day and have made it a point to get up more often. It's been helping.
We're due to be heading back into the physical library soon and I, for one, will be very glad to get back to my ergonomic chair. I've missed it, and my butt has, too!
