Founder of Insight2Heal NaQuela Pack

Local Goods

Local entrepreneur NaQuela Pack founded Insight2Heal, an online community and not-for-profit focusing on mindfulness and self-care, after spending nearly a year in Thailand. She assembled a self-care box of local goods to help you slow down and get your well-being back in check. Insight2Heal also provides resources on how to expand mindfulness to young students in the classroom – even if it’s virtual.

Keep in mind that mindfulness and self-care is a practice and takes consistency and time. Be gentle on yourself. There’s no right or wrong way, just continue to ‘do’. –NaQuela Pack, founder of Insight2Heal

Custom ICT Box

The Muse ICT Box

ICT Box offers a plethora of curated boxes with high-quality products you can only get in Wichita. No matter what themed box you choose, let it be a source of encouragement to slow down and savor the moment. With items from Black Label Candle Company, Reverie Coffee Roasters and Orie's Farm Fresh, you'll stroll right into relaxation station. 

Outdoor Adventures

Enjoying the great outdoors has been proven to lower stress and improve mood and mental health. The City of Wichita Park and Recreation team hosts monthly sunset kayak tours, where you get an unbeatable view of the skyline and the iconic Keeper of the Plains. If you’re eager to get on the water (who could blame you?), visit Boats & Bikes at River Vista to rent a water vessel of your choice any day of the week, weather permitting. The city also boasts 144 public parks and 100+ miles of bike paths that loop throughout the city, or, if you have more time, explore the region with the ultimate day trip guide.

If your happy place involves more walls and air conditioning, get your Elle Woods-approved endorphins flowing at home. Limitless Yoga Studio offers free online classes and Optimal Performance hosts virtual daily workouts and P.E. for the kiddos. 

Local Mental Health Resources

While the activities and products listed above are a unique way to break away from routine and re-center yourself, they are not replacements for trained mental health professionals. As the state's largest city, Wichita and the surrounding region have several diverse clinics and resources to meet your needs. 

Whether you’re working from home, sitting in the office or looking for your next opportunity, take care of yourself. Finding a community during this time is important - check out the list of local professional development organizations and co-working spaces on the Resources for Job Seekers page. When you live in Wichita, you have a community that has your back. That’s just one of the many things that makes this region #RelentlesslyOriginal.


I always questioned, of all places, why was I born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. It wasn’t until I discovered my passion for aviation that I realized how incredibly lucky I was to grow up in the Air Capital of the World.
