into your day doesn’t have to mean hitting the gym for hours at a time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, creating more opportunities for physical activity at the workplace can help prevent weight gain. For example, adding an activity to the work routine that burns 50 extra calories per day amounts to 1,500 calories per month. Burning 1,500 extra calories can be coupled with a healthy diet to gradually result in weight loss. In addition to burning calories, relieving stress and building muscles, performing light exercise and stretching everyday with something like the DeskMate can also increase blood circulation and raise energy levels. No more yawning at your desk!

The DeskMate by Compactix is available online at and retails for $29.99, plus shipping. Compactix also is pursuing distribution agreements with major retailers.
