Jennifer Aniston revealed that she used to sleepwalk and had sleeping issues.
In a recent interview with People’s Julie Mazziotta, Jennifer Aniston opened up about how sleepwalking, sleep anxiety, and insomnia have affected her daily health.
“I have been known to do that. I’ve been woken up by house alarms going off that I’ve set off,” Aniston told People. “And I don’t think I do that anymore — that was when I was super sleep deprived.”
She added: “The body is saying, ‘Now don’t go out and set the alarm off again, okay?'”
Currently, Jennifer Aniston is dealing with insomnia, and she told the outlet that she initially did not get medical attention because she thought her sleep troubles were not a priority. Still, her mindset has shifted in recent years.
“It became something that I really was struggling with,” Aniston said. “It used to be the last thing on the list, but you can’t really abide by the three pillars of health — which are diet, exercise and sleep — if you can’t really exercise and you can’t really eat right if you haven’t slept well because your body clock is so completely thrown off.”
In the same interview, Jennifer Aniston said her sleep troubles began in her 30s or “even earlier.”
“You just don’t start to notice the effects of a lack of sleep when we’re younger because we’re so invincible,” Aniston told People. “It began as something that I would just accept and then all of a sudden you realize the effects of your lack of sleep and how it affects your day and your work and your mind function and your physique.”
Aniston added: “And the more I worry about it, the harder it is to fall asleep.”
