Jennifer Aniston is careful with her workouts.
If the 54-year-old Friends vet has not slept well, she takes it easy.
Her morning and night routine both consist of meditation, exercise, and plenty of water, but she takes it easy if she happens to have a poor night of sleep.’I don’t push myself so hard [in a workout] because that will lead to an injury when your body and your brain aren’t fully rested,’ said the Morning Show star to InStyle on Friday.
‘I just try to do my best and just figure out everything possible that will ensure a good night’s sleep,’ Aniston – who is repping pharmaceutical company Idorsia – explained. ‘Sleep is extraordinary. It’s beautiful,’ she noted.
To help others learn about and cope with insomnia, Aniston teamed up with the Seize the Night & Day program, which includes community support and resources for those experiencing sleep trouble.
The star, whose next film is Murder Mystery 2 with Adam Sandler, also said sleep is vital.
‘All of your body is getting all the work done that it put itself through during the day. You realize a lack of sleep leads to all sorts of health issues,’ she told the site.
‘It’s a deficit you won’t ever get back.’
And she added when she was young she could sleep three to five hours a night.
‘Boy, did I take it for granted when we were young. When you’re younger, you kind of take it for granted.
‘You think, “I can survive on three-to-five hours of sleep and I feel great,” and then, all of a sudden, it just starts not to feel great and your performance isn’t as up to par as it should be.’
Now, the actress is honing in on the importance of a good night’s sleep.
Aniston also talked about two of her celebrity friends to InStyle.
She said her The Morning Show co-star Reese Witherspoon relies on her for wellness tips.
‘Reese loves to come to me and say, “What’s the latest? What do you got for me?” Usually [I] tell her my new tips and tricks,’ she shared.
Aniston also has her own hair care line, LolaVie.
‘Guys love a good hair product. My friend Jason Bateman — who has the most hair that any human being could possibly have and he’s the envy of all males with maybe three grays — he is obsessed. The guys have taken all the samples,’ she said.
The day before Jennifer was seen in a social media video.
In the 15-second-long clip the actress said, ‘If I don’t have a good night’s sleep the day is just a walking punishment.
‘Everything’s an effort and my thoughts aren’t very clear,’ she stammered as she chatted to the camera.
Jennifer looked typically gorgeous and youthful with her blonde hair styled in an off-center part as it fell over her chest.
She wore a long-sleeved, dark green v-neck sweater and a pair of light wash jeans.
Her face was lightly made up as she highlighted her blue eyes with mascara and metallic shadow,
Seize the Night & Day is a venture by Idorsia Pharmaceuticals and its official Instagram account reads, ‘We’re taking back our nights & days to help put insomnia to bed.’
Aniston first joined forces with the initiative back in January 2022 and it was announced in a press release.
The statement began, ‘Idorsia Ltd (SIX: IDIA) and Idorsia Pharmaceuticals, US Inc. today announced its partnership with award-winning actor and director/producer Jennifer Aniston to launch Seize the Night & Day, an integrated educational campaign aimed at revealing insomnia’s dual impact that affects both nights and days.’
It continued, ‘The national initiative sheds light on the reality of insomnia for the millions of Americans living with this very real, but often overlooked medical condition.’
Then it was noted that ‘Idorsia and Jen have forged a multi-year collaboration with the shared goal of informing, inspiring and empowering people to take the first steps towards quality sleep through education, actionable information and community support.’
An excerpt on the website reads, ‘If you’ve ever struggled with sleep, chances are it’s impacted both your nights & your days.
‘But even if you’re familiar, there may be more to insomnia than you realize – like what goes on in your brain at bedtime. Knowledge is power, people, so let’s get smart about sleeplessness.’
On the site, Jennifer also appeared in another ad that humorously showed her bickering with a sleep app after it failed to help her doze off.
The Hollywood fixture opened up about her nocturnal struggles back in 2022: ‘My challenges with sleep began many years ago – so it’s such a priority for my overall health.
‘If I don’t get a good night’s sleep, my next day is really difficult. In working with Idorsia, I hope that we can all start prioritizing sleep health and have different conversations around trouble sleeping.’
