Posturing

Today, I researched how to manage chronic tailbone pain from excessive sitting. One of the most consistent pieces of advice was to lean forward when working. My posture is already so bad, my chiropractor says I'm one of his worst clients of all time. I work a desk job. FML

Maybe look into getting one of those donut cushions to sit on. Although I never got one when I broke my tailbone (I was a broke college student), they’re supposed to work wonders.

Others have said it, but I'll echo it to increase the chances that you listen: get a standing desk. Or heck, get a standing desk and one of those walking treadmills that's designed to go under a standing desk, so you can walk while you're working. The improvement in your quality of life will be dramatic.

“Lean forward” can also just refer to sitting up straight. Many people lean back when sitting so leaning forward doesn’t actually put you “forward” so much as upright.
