"The most important aspects of my wellness routine are sleep, meditation, hydration, and proper nutrition," says Jennifer Aniston. In addition to these measures, she is loyal to a holy-grail ingredient that has been part of her regimen for seven years.

"In 2014, my doctor suggested I start incorporating collagen into my diet. After two months, I started to notice my workouts being easier and my sleep and endurance improving, plus I had incredible energy throughout the day," says Aniston, who is now chief creative officer of Vital Proteins, a company that specializes in supplements.

Aside from spiking her morning coffee with the original Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder ($24.99, Target.com), she uses the brand's chocolate flavor to get her sweet fix. "It's like having a forbidden milkshake that I know is good for me!"

Remaining active is also very important to the actress. After recovering from a back injury she incurred last fall, Aniston shifted her fitness focus from HIIT to Pilates, which she returned to after a 15-year hiatus. "At first I was like, 'Oh god, I am not moving enough, and I don't sweat because I am basically stretching.' But [Pilates] changed everything. I get great workouts without doing hard cardio," she says.

Keeping a healthy mindset is also a priority for her, especially over the past year. "The silver lining of this pandemic is that it gave us the chance to have a real emotional, physical, and mental reset," she says, "and [it made us] grateful for what we have."
