Fill your cup with mindful meditation techniques

With the recent launch of Starbucks new winter menu, which helps customers find the right beverage and food choices to  fit their lifestyle and taste preferences, Starbucks invites customers to pair their new favourite winter beverage with mindfulness this season. Starbucks and Headspace are giving coffee lovers access to a curated series of bespoke meditations meant to create a more intentionally restorative coffee break. The series is narrated by Headspace Director of Meditation, Eve Lewis, who speaks to topics like engaging your senses by focusing and smelling the aroma of your coffee or taking a screen break and enjoying a guided meditation on your daily coffee walk. 

Continuing to break the stigma around mental health

In 2016, Starbucks Canada launched an unprecedented $5,000 per year mental health benefit for all eligible employees, who work a minimum of 20 hours per week, and their dependents. Since then, Starbucks Canada has introduced several new mental health benefits including a free Headspace subscription for partners, as well as a completely reimagined mental health care benefit in partnership with LifeWorks that provides all Canadian partners and eligible family members access to mental, financial, physical and lifestyle wellness services, including uncapped short-term 24/7 counselling sessions.

*Offer ends 3/7/2021. After your 60-day free trial, the subscription renews automatically at $69.99 USD for an annual subscription to Headspace Plus. You can cancel at any time. This offer is for new or existing free Headspace users only.
