I have literally been sitting on my butt for the past two werk weeks, in super uncomfortable 'hotel conference room' type chairs. I now know exactly what it feels like to have separate parts of my upper and lower butt cheeks go numb for hours on end, with no possible amount of shifting, twisting and turning to alleviate the discomfort.
Active listening while enduring numb-butt can be a rather taxing thing to do for days on end. I have literally sat through 3 days of conference sessions and workshops, just listening (or day dreaming about standing up, and walking through the hotel lobby, and out the front door).
This week was a week of quarterly meetings at our headquarters in the Springs, so while there's a little more involved than just being a sponge with my butt stuck in a chair, there's still a lot of sitting to be done. Including the two hour round trip drive from my home office to headquarters.
Time to start doing some squats or lunges or something. If I don't, I'm afraid my bum may conform to the flat and unflattering contour of every nasty meeting room chair it's imprinted in the past two weeks.
