Known as the ‘girlfriend of America’, actress Jennifer Aniston has been honest in an interview with ‘People’ about a problem that has been dragging on for decades: insomnia. The 53-year-old actress has had problems sleeping since she was 30, something that has caused her episodes of sleepwalking and anxiety: «When we are young we think we are invincible and you don’t start noticing the effects of lack of sleep until it’s your birthday,” says Aniston, who adds that at first she accepted the problem but one day you realize that the effects of lack of sleep affects your work your mental function and your physical.
Still, Aniston put off seeking medical help thinking her sleep problems weren’t a priority in her life. Until he realized that he needed a solution: “It became something that I was really struggling with. Used to be last on the list but you really can’t meet the three pillars of health, which are diet, exercise and sleep, because you can’t exercise and you can’t eat well if you haven’t slept well because your biological clock is completely messed up.”
The Friends star even stated that she became a sleepwalker, something that, fortunately, no longer happens to her: « One night I woke up to the house alarms . At least there is a positive side, the body tells you: ‘Now don’t go out and activate the alarm again, okay?’ This doesn’t happen to me anymore », she says.
