Jessica Alba's advice for working mothers

Jessica Alba has urged working mothers not to be too hard on themselves.

The 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' star - who runs her own business and is a mother to daughters, Honor, seven, and Haven, four - has offered advice to women struggling to balance their career and family life.

She told Parents Latina magazine: "Don't get overwhelmed trying to do everything at once. Lay out what you can get done now and what will take longer. Don't be hard on yourself. Doing your best to be present wherever you are is what's important. Make time to eat healthy and stay active. It's worth it to recharge once a week: Get sleep, have a date night or a girls' night in, and drink some wine!"

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old actress previously revealed she wants to set a good example for her children.

She said: "My kids are my top priority. Their health and wellbeing come first. I try to teach my girls by doing.

"We fill water bottles instead of buying new ones, recycle and talk about what products are safe and unsafe for them and the earth."
