What's a Nerdy Girl With a Bad Back to Do?

Why, buy a kneeling chair on Amazon for $79.74 of course! I had it shipped to work but I bought it for my home office. I've been testing it to see what I think. 

It's kind of hard to get used to, because at first it felt like I basically traded low-back pain for incredible shin pain. And then I shifted my weight into my butt more and stuck my knees into the knee pad instead of my shins and that feels way better. It's a great conversation piece. Everybody wants to try it. And, since my cube at work is near the front door everybody teases me on their way to the bathroom.  

They make a mockery of me, Mom! Because this is what they see:

If having good posture is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Of course I came up with a funny comeback way too late. I might try it tomorrow. Here it is: 

And then when I finally sat down at my home office tonight to write this blog post, and my friend Heather walked by she made a mockery of me again, Mom! Because this is what she saw:


And then I said:
"OH YAH? GO PEE WHY DON'T YOU?" to Heather but she didn't get it.

I have a bad back too and I'd love to know what you think of it. I've tried back support inserts, which make me look like a geriatric, and the giant yoga ball, which was too much work. Everyone at work already thinks I'm a weirdo, so I'm hardly worried about maintaining my rep.

Do you use those timed ergonomic stretch breaks too? Clearly, backache is one of my favorite topics.

Or you should have gotten the treadmill desk. Anyway, hope it helps.

I don't know TILTE -- my knees kind of hurt -- but I have worked three 12 hour days in it. It's not fair to blame that on the chair. Poor chair.

I think for an 8-hour day it would be fabulous.

You should try working horizontally. Excellent for back-preservation. It is something I would give a positive review to.

You may be able to slow down bathroom traffic mockery by asking "How did everything come out?" when they are leaving the restroom.
