Jennifer Aniston knows the importance of staying healthy in all aspects of her life.

In an exclusive conversation with PEOPLE tied to her partnership with Pvolve, the 55-year-old actress opens up about her approach to self-care, exercise and nutrition.

When asked to describe what her daily diet looks like, Aniston says, “My diet is very similar. It’s usually a lot of protein, vegetables, salads, soups, and everything I could possibly want on a weekend. I always give myself a cheat day”.

Highlighting their cheat meal, The morning show star reveals, “Well, it depends. I mean, I dare you to sound repetitive, but Mexican food is one of my favorites. It’s not even a cheat, to be honest.”

“Or a cheeseburger, a pizza, or a pasta all those things,” Aniston continues.

In addition to eating well, Aniston knows that taking care of her mental health is crucial to overall well-being.

One way to practice self-care, the star says, is by limiting her screen time and also monitoring the type of content she watches.

“[It’s important to] turn off the screens. … Put down the phone and go outside. Surround yourself with friends and connect with people,โ€ says Aniston.

“Try to think about … what’s possible, as opposed to the doom and gloom that the world tends to look like these days,” he adds. “We’re just not designed to take in that kind of information all day.”

According to Aniston, she is “absolutely” a morning person when it comes to exercise.

“I always feel like after a long day, the last thing I want to do is train,” she explains. “I admire those who can actually come home from a day’s work and put on workout clothes and go to the gym at night. I think that’s amazing, but I can’t see myself doing that.”

On the days she struggles to get to the gym, Aniston says she actively works to quiet the negative thoughts in her head.

“I say, ‘Just go. Do five minutes. Just move for at least five minutes,'” says the actress. “Then you find that if you’ve got through the first 10 minutes of anything, you can probably do 10 more and then another 10, and then you just keep going.”
