Stress Relief Giveaway

COVID-19 Stress Relief Giveaway

We are all going though an unprecedented time in our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic is putting a lot of stress and strain on families. Small businesses like ours are also hurting and consequently the local businesses and artisans that supply us are too; many businesses will not survive this pandemic.

This pandemic has shown us what happens when manufacturing is shifted offshore and people purchase foreign made products (usually of low quality), just because they are cheaper. We now have no way to produce the products that are desperately needed and have to go “cap in hand” and beg. BUY LOCAL!

We are asking you to take a few moments to enter this competition and help us “spread the word” so that when this pandemic is over, local small business will still be there to offer their high quality products to you.

      Also haven’t been to the shops. A 3 week wait for groceries to be delivered in our area. One way to diet 🙂

      • Margo says:

        As i read your ‘one way to diet’ comment… I’ll just say I’m very thankful my husband and I started a daily fasting practise last fall, and are established in that now. It makes food and eating way less of a perceived or real emergency now during this season!

          Not well not used to no school and being laid off no income and 2 kids to raise alone, definitely losing my mind!

  1. Rosanne Robinson says:

    We’re staying in touch with our family via Skype & Hangouts. Our grandson is sending us video updates daily on his activities. It’s really hard not being together in person though.

  2. debra dubois says:

    One day at a time I try not to keep focused on the news but yet keep informed. I have been keeping busy with the kiddos and having nights for me time just to unwind and breathe. Keep safe & healthy

  3. Lori says:

    I have been a What a Jewel customer for a very long time. The orders that I’ve gifted to Family & Friends have been enjoyed & treasured! I’d Love to win … and Wish everyone Peace, Health and Luck during this time of Global Illness. Pray ing for our 🌎 Planet❤️

  4. Wanda Tracey says:

    I am trying not to stress by staying busy by crafting, cleaning my home and trying to relax with a movie here and there. Thanks for this amazing opportunity.

  5. Fran Schwitek says:

    I am coping by spring cleaning the house, crafting and preparing for my gardening days which I hope will be here soon!

  6. Catherine L. says:

    I try and think good thoughts when I start to feel down. It’s hard on everyone. Walks help also. Take care of yourselves out there and each other.

  7. Jennifer W. says:

    Staying healthy and home as much as possible during this pandemic, and caring for parents over 80 and my mother in law (90 years young), delivering to them goods as needed. Like most, much of my work has disappeared but I am hopeful that when this passes, though it will take time to get through this ..we will all have a greater appreciation of the important things in life (health and family) and hopefully have all learned more caring and compassion too. Stay well and healthy everyone! This giveaway/contest is such a lovely surprise and well received! Thank you Graeme!

  8. Johanna says:

    I am having a hard time with my anxiety. When I stress more my autoimmune disease flares up. I am doing my best to keep strong for I am looking after my elderly parents and my furbabies too. Thank you for the chance. Take care everyone. 🥰

  9. Julie Bickham says:

    I been working everyday so my stress level is really high. I wind down at night by listening to audio mediation podcasts.

  10. Donna S says:

    I’m spending time at home. Going out bi-weekly for groceries and taking a walk to the community mailbox. However, I do tend to eat more if I’m cooped up inside. So I also do daily walks on the treadmill.

    • Graeme says:

      It seems you are not alone. Everybody is eating more. Can’t get anybody to deliver groceries, have to sit at the computer waiting for a delivery spot open up, like a cat waiting to pounce.

  11. Jessica Peeling says:

    I’m still working as a resident physician, so I am just staying calm and helping others decrease their stress mostly. When I am at home, relaxing baths and wine!

  12. Catherine Robichaud says:

    I have good and bad days. I find it hard being on my own with no social interactions other than on the phone. I’m hoping that as the weather gets nicer I will be able to get outside more and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

  13. Susan Gillam says:

    I’m have Type 1 Diabetes so I’ve been isolatio since the end of February. I miss seeing my sister and i’ve never really been apart from her. We always saw each other on a weekly, sometimes daily basis.

  14. Anne Marie Carter says:

    I am still doing everything that I would normally be doing daily prior to the Pandemic. We are on Spring Break for this week but, next week I will resume teaching from home. I have been doing this since March 16.

  15. Jason Coward says:

    How am I coping? Not as well as I would like.
    The staying at home except for essential trips is not a problem. Having the kids home and homeschooling wasn’t a problem. But having my wife have to work from home at the same time as the school is trying to set up e-learning and having our whole routine upended . . . that’s been a bit much for me.
    Plus side? My grocery store had TP in stock last week.

    Just. In. Time.

  16. Linda Kish says:

    I am staying well. I do get concerned because I am a heart patient. I have an appointment with my cardiologist next month that hasn’t been cancelled yet. I am a loner so staying home is good for me.

  17. Elaine G says:

    Staying in is not that hard for me. But it is stressing dealing with the virus. To take my mind of the news I read and watch tv.

  18. Patricia Zeemel says:

    We are staying home and safe, playing lots of games and becoming amazing bakers!

    We are doing well, but we all have days were we need time outs 🤪

  19. Mary Ann Dudragne says:

    We have been self-isolating…. and only one of us (usually my husband) going out for groceries, cat food, and prescriptions. If we do need to get out of the house, we’ve gone for neighbourhood walks (practicing social distancing when we encounter other walkers) or we go for a little drive around our small city.

  20. Linda Fast says:

    I am not stressed out but with all my free time I am spending a lot of my free time reading and babysitting grandchildren.

  21. Jennifer Holm says:

    Still working…half in the office and half from home. My daughter came to visit for March Break and, since school is not back in, she is still here…that’s a pretty awesome silver lining in this mess.

  22. Tara L says:

    Well it is very stressful and boring staying inside, but try to be productive TRY I have really bad anxiety so that doesn’t always help but I want to get a bike so I can ride around and get fresh air.

  23. Tara Lewis says:

    Thankfully I have 3 dogs at home that need walks several times a day so I get out of the house & into the fresh air & sunshine which definitely helps during this stressful time.

  24. Judy Thompson says:

    trying to stay away from everyone and Praying for all the sick the well that they dont get sick and talking to our Lord and asking him to Kill this virous Amen

  25. Darlene Owen says:

    This has been a very stressful time with this virus. I am used to playing cards (Euchre) at the senior center once a week and at another center in another town. Also I like to go on trips with our senior center. So having to stay home has been very depressing.

  26. Erin N says:

    Keeping up with a routine has been vital for me! Spending time outdoors, eating healthy foods, and keeping in touch with friends and family through text and phone. Hang in there, everyone!

  27. Barrie says:

    I am coping by enjoying our beautiful sunny days by sitting on our back porch. I read a lot, cook, and watch TV with family.

  28. Debbie Browne says:

    I am reading, walking, playing with the pets, building jigsaw puzzles, making masks, calling friends and family, and dreaming of spring and green grass and gardening!

  29. Gina Ferrell says:

    I’m spring cleaning, watching movies and TV shows, reading, baking goodies, and playing board games while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

  30. Kathy Pierce says:

    I have been cleaning my house and doing yard work, trying to stay busy it eases stress and helps clear the mind.

  31. Janet Price says:

    It’s ok. I live with my family and glad l do as they do everything for me. I love living with my 2 grandchildren 💖👫

  32. Jessie S says:

    Treating myself to skin care that’s more than St Ives Scrub and Cetaphil Lotion for the first time in my 33 years! Also getting deeper into tea and aromatherapy… and enjoying pet garden snails!

  33. Kathleen Karl Connell says:

    Thank you for doing this giveaway. I was a stay at home mom before so it hasn’t been too rough but we are feeling the financial strain due to my other half being laid off and not eligible for unemployment, even with the exemptions for this virus…stay safe everyone!

  34. Linda Sear says:

    Luckily my spouse and I have good home entertainment to help alleviate boredom- we have a new PlayStation 4 to play our favorite games on (for me, it’s pinball lol), cable TV including Netflix, (thanks to a friend of mine that is allowing me to ‘borrow’ her account) where I’ve been binge watching The Crown series, and internet of course that allows me to enter online sweeps like this one! : ) All of these entertainment choices really help me to stay occupied and keep stress at bay.

  35. Tia says:

    I’ve been doing pretty well. I’ve been reading, watching some very interesting tv shows and playing Nintendo games with my sons. Their online schooling also keeps me busy during the day.

    • Graeme says:

      Yes, it’s difficult to know what’s fact and what’s is not. “You don’t need to wear a mask” then “You must wear a mask” (I believe the latter is true)

  36. Amber Kolb says:

    I’m trying to stay busy and not look at the news everyday. My husband and I have been Spring cleaning the house which has been a lot of busy work, which is great. I’ve also been reading more books and taking walks.

  37. Maple Cross says:

    Technically, I’ve been home for most of the time to begin with, but many things being closed is a tiny bit stressful. I cope by being as productive as I can be at home. I’m also taking some extra me-time for self care and meditation. 🙂

  38. MaryAnne LaRocque-Ouamar says:

    I still work fulltime, at a group home. I cannot visit my Dad, he is 79 in a care facility. Somehow getting thru. I am married and we have 3 cats.

  39. Amy Lovell says:

    It’s actually really hard, and i’m bored outta my tree. I went from a 12 hour physical job to no work. so I try to keep busy with my daughter. we go on long hikes in the woods and bring the dog, we bake and do crafts. and do learning together. but it sure is a adjustment!!

  40. Jade W says:

    To be honest I am not coping well at all. I miss seeing loved ones in person. My depression has come back in full force. I’m worried for my mom who is high risk, and I’m extremely stressed about my money situation. But I will continue to take it day by day and try my best to relax.

  41. BARB F. says:

    Been an odd year so far. The Dr told me that I really need to avoid getting it due to my health issues with NA type of COPD. I have a really bad cough for going on 11 years – meds barely do anything. Now have to worry about catching this thing plus I need dental work – but my dentist is closed due to Covid-19..sigh…Hopefully they reopen before it abscesses or I run out of dental cement. Otherwise we are managing to get by.

  42. Sherry Proch says:

    Going outside to the yard or out walking often. Sunshine and fresh air and a break between the hubby and I. Reading so much!

  43. Annmarie Weeks says:

    I’m reminding myself how very fortunate my family has been and enjoying time with them. We are watching Netflix, playing board games, communicating with family & friends via phone & on the computer and taking walks.

  44. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    We are taking the precautions and staying in unless necessary. It will work out and I pray for the ones that have and are losing loved ones. We look to God for all things work for good for those that love the Lord.
