If you’ve been to a doctor’s office lately, you have most likely had your temperature taken with an infrared non-contact thermometer – or, if you work in a doctor’s office, hospital, or another type of medical setting, then you have perhaps been the one taking temperatures. Either way, almost everyone has encountered one of these thermometers at some point during the COVID-19 pandemic, and their use is only going to increase. That’s because being able to take accurate body temperature measurements and avoiding contact with others are two things that have never been more important.
At Breathing Happy, we recognize the need for tools that protect workers, patients, clients, customers, and even families in their own homes who want to monitor their health and stay informed of any new symptoms. Our new Infrared Non-Contact Forehead and Ear Digital Thermometer is designed to do just that: help protect everyone who uses it.
The Breathing Happy Infrared Non-Contact Digital Thermometer is made from anti-bacterial ABS plastic for sturdy yet lightweight construction. It provides highly accurate one-second body temperature measurements, allowing you to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius readings. The high-quality OLED display features a backlight for easy nighttime use, a “silent mode” option, automatic shutdown after ten seconds, and 32 memory readings to help you keep track of your temperatures. The thermometer measures 7x5x5 in., so it’s easy to store or transport.
This thermometer weighs 97 grams without batteries; it requires two AAA batteries to operate. It will quickly and accurately measure body temperature from a distance of three to five centimeters. It can measure body temperatures between 32C/89.6F and 42.9C/109.22F. It is Ce, ISO, ROHS, and FDA certified, so you can have the peace of mind of knowing that you are using a safe and reliable product.
Does it really matter what kind of thermometer you use? It sure does. One of the biggest advantages of infrared non-contact thermometers is that they record body temperatures without ever making contact with the person’s skin, making it a safer and cleaner option than a thermometer that goes inside the mouth or otherwise makes physical contact with the person. These thermometers also work well for a wide variety of applications, from regular home use to doctor’s offices to hospitals to businesses of any kind that want to ensure that no one with a fever comes inside in order to protect all of their customers and employees.
Infrared thermometers also contain no mercury – an important point for anyone who wants to limit their exposure to the toxic metal and ensure that they aren’t using a thermometer that can be broken and spill it out onto their skin or into their environment. If you’re looking for a thermometer that provides faster results, is more accurate, and is safer to use, the choice is clear. The Breathing Happy Infrared Non-Contact Forehead and Ear Thermometer is the answer.

I think we would all agree that anger management is very important, especially if you are a naturally irascible person. Anger is a normal human emotion, something that we all experience from time to time. It’s normal, but as we all know it can be extremely destructive and frightening, so it is important to know how to handle it. Read more
Anyone who has ever dozed off on a Sunday afternoon with a warm kitten purring on their chest or thrown a ball for a happy, clumsy dog who faithfully returns it again and again knows the joy our pets can bring us on a daily basis. For millions of people, pets introduce a circle of love: we love them, they love us, and we are both better off. And there’s more – not only are pets adorable, but they’re actually pretty good for our physical and mental health, too. If you don’t have a pet and have considered adopting one, here are four good reasons to go ahead and take the plunge.
1. Pets make it easier to stay fit
If your favorite gym is closed right now because of the pandemic (or if you’d just rather not take the risk), a dog offers a fantastic solution to working off those extra quarantine calories. Your pup needs exercise, too, so take her along on a walk, jog, hike, or swim a few times a week. If you have a trail near your home, your feet and your dog’s alike will appreciate the softer surface. Even a game of fetch in the backyard is better than couch potato-ing for yet another hour. As an added bonus, dogs who get outdoors for a daily walk tend to be healthier, happier, calmer, and better-behaved in general.
2. Pets are great for your mental health
Not only are pets known to offer unconditional love (even those “special” cats who offer it only on their terms), but they also help give their owners a sense of purpose. Your pets can help combat feelings of loneliness and sadness by providing companionship, giving your overall mood a boost. This benefit is particularly apparent among groups of people who are prone to depression, such as the sick or elderly. There’s a reason that so many hospitals and nursing homes employ pet-facilitated therapy for their patients!
3. Pets can help relieve pain
Amazingly, your pet can actually provide pain relief for you. A growing body of evidence suggests that pets are helpful for people with chronic pain, such as those with spine conditions, traumatic injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, or physically demanding jobs. Our pets give us a reason to get out of bed in the morning and also help keep us moving – and staying active is key to managing chronic pain. Keep in mind that inactivity and pain can become a vicious cycle, so as long as your doctor gives you the go-ahead, staying active with your pet is a great way to manage pain and preserve mobility.
4. Pets help improve heart health
There’s even more good news for people who love their furry friends. It appears that pet ownership is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Now, correlation does not prove causation – but it does indicate that having a pet may be a smart move for people who want to lower their overall risk as much as possible. There are several possible reasons for the relationship between owning a pet and having a healthier heart. For instance, dog owners tend to get more exercise than people who don’t have dogs, relaxing with a pet is very calming, and playing with/petting/talking to your best friend is a great stress management technique.
Whatever your reason for wanting a pet, it’s clear that you’ll likely be better off with one than without one. If you’re in a position to take care of a dog or cat properly and you could use a little more companionship in your life, now’s as good a time as any to add pet adoption to your to-do list.
