WEN 50 Ways to More Calm, Less Stress


HBK is always a proud supporter of the Women's Energy Network. Most recently, our Chicago Carroll office was grateful to host its event featuring Keynote Speaker, Megy Karydes. Megy took us on an insightful journey through her book, "50 Ways to More Calm, Less Stress," and dove into various strategies to combat stress. Each tool was rooted in one of the five senses: touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. Attendees resonated with all of her tips and took in valuable techniques to enhance mental well-being.

Thank you to WEN for organizing this event. We were grateful to be involved!
