Rumor has it Jennifer Aniston is sharing her go-to health tips.

In fact, the Friends alum shared some of the golden lifestyle rules she lives by—even if they aren't the easiest to follow.

"I drink a lot of water, move my body daily, try to eat whole, fresh foods, and get as much sleep as I can," Jennifer told CR Fashion Book in an interview published Sept. 27. "That last part is challenging for me, but it's so important."

After all, the 54-year-old knows that skipping out on sleep has a noticeable impact the next day. "I feel it when I don't get enough rest," Jennifer confessed. "In addition to all of that, I try to be really mindful about what I let into my head- space. Our world is really going through some challenges, and I know we all care a lot, but sometimes I think it's imperative that we turn off the noise."

But then again, The Morning Show actress is no stranger to making sure her headspace is clear and peaceful. And she's previously noted that a bit of self-care is her perfect way to start the day.

"You can meditate anywhere but usually I do it the minute I wake up," Jennifer told E! News in July 2022. "I just get my feet on the floor and sit down in front of a little altar. If I'm away, I just find a space for it. And even if it's five minutes, 10 minutes, just I have to do it."

She's even made changes to her fitness routine after years of strenuous activity.

"You had to get 45 minutes to an hour of cardio; otherwise, you weren't getting a workout," she recalled to British Vogue in June of her previous mentality. "Not only do you stress your body, you burn out—who wants to do that at all?"

But while Jennifer takes a lot of steps to keep her body and mind in a good place, the actress expressed her frustration at being told "you look great for your age," adding that "it drives me bananas."

"That's a habit of society that we have these markers like, ‘Well, you're at that stage, so for your age,'" she continued. "I don't even understand what it means. I'm in better shape than I was in my 20s. I feel better in my mind, body and spirit. It's all 100 percent better."

And it is advice she hopes more people will follow.

"I think it's just taking the pressure off of ourselves," she added, "and really knowing that whatever you did that day is enough, and don't be your own worst critic."
