Jennifer Aniston, 54, Says She Slows Down Her Workouts If She Hasn’t Slept Well
The actress insisted sleep is extraordinary; it’s beautiful.
“Sleep is beautiful,” the Friends star claimed. And if she hasn’t slept well, Jennifer Aniston slows down on her workout routine, as she understands that sleep deprivation can lead to serious injury. The 54-year-old has struggled with insomnia, but now she’s grown to appreciate the value of sleeping, claiming the day would be a walking punishment if she doesn’t have a good night’s sleep.
The actress said the above in a 15-second-long Instagram Stories, where she donned a long-sleeved dark green V-neck sweater and a pair of light-wash jeans.
Jennifer looked youthful with her hair styled in an off-center part. Her face was lightly made up, highlighting her blue eyes with mascara and metallic shadow.
The Morning Show star further stressed the subject matter in an interview with InStyle, saying: “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. I just try to do my best and just figure out everything possible that will ensure a good night’s sleep. Sleep is extraordinary. It’s beautiful.”
Notably, Jennifer’s morning and night routine involves medication, exercise, and plenty of water intake.
The star also said sleep is vital and added that: “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. It’s a deficit you won’t ever get back.” To help others learn about and cope with Insomnia, Jennifer has teamed up with Seize the Night & Day Program.
Seize the Night & Day is a venture by Idorsia Pharmaceuticals, and its Instagram reads: “We’re taking back our nights and days to help put insomnia to bed.”
Jennifer further shared that when she was young, she could sleep three to five hours a night, stating: “Boy, I didn’t 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 sudden, it just starts not to feel great and your performance isn’t as up to par as it should be.”
The actress joined forces with Idorsia Pharmaceuticals in January 2022 and it was announced in a press release.
“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. 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,” it read.
The statement also 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 toward quality sleep through education, information, and community support.
An excerpt on the brand’s website states: ‘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 an Ad that hilariously showed her bickering with a sleep app after it failed to help her doze off.
In 2022, the Hollywood fixture opened up about her nocturnal struggles, sharing that her challenges with sleep began many years ago, hence it’s such a priority for her overall health.
At the time, Jennifer said, “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.” However, the actress also talked about two of her celebrity friends to InStyle, claiming that Reese Witherspoon “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.”
Accordingly, Jennifer, whose next film is Murder Mystery 2 with co-star Adam Sandler, has her own hair care line, LolaVie. And she had said of the brand: “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’s obsessed. The guys have taken all the samples.”
