Miami Airport Wellness: 10 Ways to Get Healthy at Miami Airport

 

1. Stretch out with some yoga

We’re all about stretching out with some airport yoga. Just the thought of being cramped up on a plane for however many hours makes us want to strike a warrior pose!

Location: Pre-security, Terminal H, 1st floor. Open daily 9am-9pm.

2. Breathe in some fresh air at the green wall

Green walls (or “living” walls) have been proven to help calm the nerves of passengers, provide some clean air to breathe and help boost overall morale of travelers.

Location: Behind the reception desk.

3. Keep hydrated with the many hydration stations

It’s so important to stay hydrated – especially at the airport. Get your hydration levels up before you board the flight by filling up at one of Miami Airports many water-bottle filling stations.

Location: Throughout the terminals, post-security.

4. Relax in a rocking chair

Long gone are the days when rocking chairs were only meant for old ladies knitting. Yes, that’s right. Rocking chairs have a lot of other benefits to them like helping to ease anxiety, depression, improve your balance and reducing your need for pain medication.

Location: Scattered through the terminals.

5. Grab a nutritious meal at Lorena Garcia Cocina

You may recognize chef Lorena Garcia from her Taco Bell commercials, but fast food burritos notwithstanding, she has made some right career moves. Her airport outpost, Lorena Garcia Cocina, serves Caribbean jerk chicken, shrimp ceviche and baked breakfast empanadas that come out of the kitchen fast, but not suspiciously fast.

Location: Concourse D, near Gate 57.
