stella artois hour special

This beverage brand is helping Canadians prioritize work-life balance from 5 to 9 p.m.

The experience of burnout from work has always been a reality for Canadians, although these feelings have exasperated with the newer norm of working from home. 

Up to half of Canadians now working from home report working longer hours than they did prior to the pandemic, despite having the same level of productivity. 

Compared to working at the office, there's no clear divide between work and personal life, and less time is being dedicated to ourselves and loved ones.

Nowadays, we still feel the need to be available and connected to work emails, even if we're just trying to enjoy a beer and a bite to eat after a long day

Stella Artois is encouraging Canadians to reclaim your personal time, between the hours of 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., to spend doing what you love, with the people you love.

Even if it's just taking a sip of your favourite beer, take the time to disconnect and savour the moment, because you deserve individual time away from who you are at work. 

Now that restrictions have eased, you can help yourself set boundaries between work and play and get together with friends for Stella's Hour Specials.

Feel free to get out of the house after working inside all day, by checking out where the nearest Stella & Starters promotions are being served near you.

The beer brand has set up a page where you can search for the nearest bars serving Stella, with exciting weekly specials to take advantage of. 

Even if it's getting some fresh air for an hour while sipping on a refreshing drink, you'll feel the difference in prioritizing balance versus being overworked. After all, it's only worth it if you can enjoy it with the people you care about.
