Why Jennifer Aniston writes down a "gratitude list" every morning
Jennifer Aniston knows what’s important.
With one of the most enviable bodies in Hollywood, the actress has always embraced eating well and exercising, but she’s the first to admit that taking care of yourself isn’t always a priority.
“Me-time” for the the Aveeno spokesperson entails “my morning ritual of waking up, meditation, working out, walking the dogs,” Aniston says. “Then on Sundays, I usually do carve out a little afternoon mini spa day for me where I give myself a good scrub and a nice mask. Sunday is usually my day to kind of indulge by putting on some nice music and giving myself some love.”

Among her favorite products at the moment are Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion and the brand’s new Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. “It’s just delicious,” she adds. “It leaves your skin glowing and so supple.”
When it comes to beauty, Aniston, 48, has always preferred a more natural approach, but there’s another product that has her intrigued.
Current guilty pleasures for Aniston include making pasta with her husband Justin Theroux (“we just give ourselves a day to have a little indulgence, friends come over, we cook fun meals together”) and watching the new Netflix show, Ozark, starring their close friend, Jason Bateman. “It’s just phenomenal,” she adds. “He’s so good.”
As for her workout, Aniston has started attending The Class by Taryn Toomey. “It’s like meditation, physical activity, just shake it all off, like therapy, tick all the boxes,” she says. And if she doesn’t have time for a class, the actress hits the treadmill at home. “I do 45 minutes intervals of just jogging for two minutes, walking for two minutes, jogging for two minutes,” she adds. “Put it up to an incline and you just get 45 minutes of just real cardio.”
So what is Aniston most grateful for these days?
“Oh God, just my health, my family, I’m just grateful,” she says. “I try to write down a gratitude list every morning as well, it always gives you a thankful shift. I’m just grateful for all of it.”
