Jennifer Aniston's Travel Tips For A Vibrant Vacation

by Charlene Flanagan
Jennifer Aniston has come a long way from “schooping” down snowy slopes on F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

The Horrible Bosses star, who was awarded the title of the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ by People magazine recently, has also earned the reputation of being an avid globe-trotter with many picturesque locations in her travelogue. This lucky lady is known to take time off between filming for pleasure, and jet set to far-off, exotic locations like Bora Bora, Cabo, Paris...*dreamy sigh*

So, when she was chosen to show-off her in-flight lifestyle by Emirates, we couldn’t help but envision what dream destination she'd be hitting up next.

But first, let's enjoy the ad, shall we?

"If I walk onto an airplane, I always have to go on with my right foot first and tap the outside of the plane. I have always done it. For luck. Someone told me to do it, and I don’t remember when that was. But it’s kind of stuck,” she admitted to Yahoo.

Scouring through her interviews and Instagram posts courtesy husband Justin Theroux and her beauty brand Living Proof, here are some travel tips we gathered from the glamorous A-lister for all you wanderlust souls. 

While Traveling, Stay Hydrated
The last thing you want to deal with when vacationing and traveling are headaches, fatigue, chapped lips and weakness.

Worse, oh those in-flight hangovers; they can really put a dampener on things when you land so drink a glass of water for every glass of alcohol. Jennifer makes it a point to rehydrate, especially when flying. “Water, water, water, on an airplane. If there is a drink happening, it’s usually a Bloody Mary, which I don’t ever order [except] when I’m on an airplane."

Also, she usually brings her own lunch of a packed salad on board, just in case they don’t have something she wants. 

Let Loose, But Don’t Go Overboard

When you’re on vacation, it is important to live a little, enjoy your surroundings and try new things. But when you have the tendency of to gain little bit of weight, and fast, you need to pay attention to what you eat. As Aniston revealed in an interview with E!, “I have no problem treating myself to some indulgent foods but I usually don't go overboard with it in a way that I have to double up the fitness.”

On a Sunday morning the actress resorts to a protein-packed breakfast to kickstart her day. "You’ll find me having eggs and a bagel and reading the paper. I start with the front page, then the travel section, arts and leisure or the calendar. How I take my eggs depends on my mood. But I always throw a yolk in there—the yolk’s got a bad rap unnecessarily," she told

Stay Active When You Travel

While on vacation, definitely get that much-needed R&R, but remember that being active for about 30 minutes every day will help keep your energy levels up and also, give you some reprieve from the jet-lag.

Aniston says, “When you land after a long, long flight, go hit the gym and do a 30-minute run. It has worked for me—when I’ve actually had the energy to go and do it!”

She’s even admitted to hauling her Mandy Ingber workout DVD and resistance bands when she travels. "If yoga didn’t exist, I’d invent it." Crediting exercise and meditation with being her ultimate stress relievers, this is one traveler who puts things into perspective and we're loving every bit of what we're seeing.
