    Resources and Ideas To Help You Through the Coronavirus Quarantine

    We here at Project Inspired can imagine what you may be experiencing.

    We are living in unsettling times, and we want to provide you with some resources and ideas to help you during this time. If you have any more questions or need prayer please reach out to me (Nicole) on Instagram. My username is @nicoleweider. I may not get back to you right away, but I do check my DMs and I will reply to you.

    We know that this is a stress-inducing time period for many around the world. It’s a time of uncertainty, but we can stay strong because of our unwavering faith in God. 

    “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you,” Psalm 56:3. 

    To help out our Project Inspired community, I put together a list of resources to help get you and your family through this pandemic. 

    For food and assistance:

    • Feeding America — If you are in need of food or want to donate food, check-in with your local food bank. They are a great resources for those that are in need or those that have excess.
    • Government Benefits — You may be eligible to receive government benefits, food stamps, or housing-related care depending on your age, marital status, if you have children, disabilities, etc. You could also possibly qualify if you experience a sudden job loss.

    Job Ideas/Ways To Save Money

    • Instacart — If you love to shop, you can set your own hours and I’m sure the demand is high right now.
    • User testing — Get paid to review people’s websites: $10 per test, but users can earn up to $60.
    • Earn gift cards by scanning your receipts — With Fetch, you can earn points and get free gift cards by simply scanning your receipts. Not only do you get rewarded for adding your receipts, but it’s super fun and easy too.

    Mental Health Resources

    Things to do while home

    While there are many activities to do at home, you might begin to feel like you have exhausted them after a few days. Here are a few activities you can do while practicing social distancing: 

    • Read the books you’ve been meaning to read.
    • Get outside! Go for a walk, a hike or a bike ride. Just make sure to sanitize the bike first 😉
    • Go low-tech. Play a board game, do a puzzle, play some cards. I’m playing board games with my 6-year-old son Elijah. We love playing Sorry and Candy Land and he’s just now learning Chess. Look on Amazon for lots of fun board games to play depending on your preference and age of who you’re playing the game with.
    • Keep up with family and friends via FaceTime.
    • Experiment with homemade coffee recipes.
    • Try an at-home workout.
    • Keep up and protect your mental health.
    • Try out a new recipe that you normally wouldn’t. I’m planning on baking a cake this week.
    • Start a new journal. Writing is often very therapeutic and may help you through this time. Plus it will be nice to look back and see your thoughts later on. I also keep a journal and I call it my “miracle journal” and through it, I can see God’s faithfulness and specific dreams come to pass.
    • Learn digital art! If you have an iPad, you can use the sketch app. I’m having so much fun learning how to create digital art. It’s fun and also relaxing.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions or need more ideas on anything. Again please reach out to me on Instagram at @nicoleweider. We’re here to help you, and we’re praying for you and for God to help our country and people in this unsettling time. Now is the time more than ever for us to place our whole trust and faith in Jesus! God bless you. xo Nicole
