Jennifer Lopez's life balance

Jennifer Lopez's life balance

Jennifer Lopez works hard to balance her family life and her career.

The 'Boy Next Door' star always makes a conscious effort to make time to see her two children - Max and Emme, both eight - despite how busy she is.

She told Entertainment Tonight: "I have to see them, because if I don't see them and they don't see me, then it's not happiness. Like this morning, I had to work out, then I sit down and I have lunch with them before I come over here and then I go, 'You know what? Since we're shooting all the way through, I'll have the kids come over at 6:30. They can bring me dinner because we had some leftovers.' Every day is like that!"

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old singer and actress previously revealed she also puts 40 minutes aside each day to meditate.

She shared: "Last year, I was doing all three things at that time. I took on meditation ... 20 minutes a day in the morning and at night ... was necessary. It was almost like my brain, for the first time in my life, felt like 'Okay, you bit off more than you can chew.'

"I've always been a hard worker. To be at a point in my career where I've been in it for 20-something years and be getting the opportunities and me having a moment ... where I get to, as an artist, do all the things that I love to do still and on the level that I'm doing them, all of it feels like such a blessing."
