In conversation with InStyle the “Morning Show” star chatted about her healthy lifestyle and even let loose the one thing she took for granted when younger. Aniston told the site she wished she had focused more on sleep as a youth.

“Sleep is extraordinary. It’s beautiful,” the former “Friends” star said. “But, 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 there-to-five hours of sleep and 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.”

Aniston went on saying sleep becomes even more important as we age.

“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 said. “It’s a deficit you won’t ever get back.”

The actress talked about her routines from exercise to meditation to go along with the good 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,” she said. “I just try to do my best and just figure out everything possible that will ensure a good night’s sleep.”

Even Aniston’s famous friends like Reese Witherspoon are looking for health hints.

“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 said.
