Working from home and experiencing discomfort from an average office chair?

I Used A Kneeling Ergonomic Chair For 30 Days

I work a desk job and was experiencing neck and shoulder pain, so I tried switching up my chair to see if it would help.

Hi! I'm Farrah, and like a good portion of all office culture employees, I am still working from home during the pandemic. My current "office" chair cost me a total of $30, but I've been having an increase of shoulder and neck pain, which I attribute to hunching while working at my computer. Basically, I'm desperate to try something new, which led me down the rabbit hole of ergonomic chairs.

Questions You Are Too Embarrassed To Ask About Down There

We asked the BuzzFeed Community if they ever had a question to ask about ~down there~ that they might be too embarrassed or intimidated to ask, and they came through with lots of insightful questions! So, we reached out to Dr. Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a licensed pelvic floor physical therapist and owner of Femina Physical Therapy in Los Angeles, to answer your pelvic health inquiries.

Here is a sampling of the questions:

1. "Why do I have to pee so often? I barely drink any liquids throughout the day, because otherwise I’d be peeing even more than I already am."

Stop Peeing Just In Case
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
I was asked by Shelby Heinrich of BuzzFeed for my advice on how peeing too often can affect your bladder health, and how to "stop peeing just in case" when your bladder is only half full instead of at full capacity. Here is a brief summary with a link to the full article.

I don't know about you, but I was always taught growing up that it's good to pee before leaving the house, "just in case."

Not really sure if you actually need to go? Just pop a squat and see what happens!

Makes sense, right? Why not pee now in order to avoid having to pee later, at a more inconvenient time? Well, according to TikToker @nosuchthingastmi, it's actually not a good idea!

In the TikTok, she explains that if you frequently urinate when you don't actually need to, you're emptying your bladder when it's only half full instead of at full capacity.

This can lead to increased feelings of urgency because your bladder gets used to functioning at a lower capacity than it's supposed to. Once that happens, you need to retrain your bladder so it stops signaling that it needs to be emptied when it's really only half full.
