Jennifer Lopez is the epitome of what one calls, forever young. The ageless beauty has often shared the secret behind her youthful body, admitting how she prioritizes her health, mind, and body over everything else. The 53-year-old Hispanic actress, whom her fans refer to as a superhuman, once shared a frightening experience where she felt she couldn’t move at all.

The Time When Jennifer Lopez Didn’t Prioritize Health

Jennifer Lopez‘s fans believe that the 53-year-old singer is no less than a superhuman. The Anaconda actress, known for her fitness goals, once struggled with an unhealthy lifestyle. Thinking she was invincible, the singer stayed on set round the clock, trying to make a name for herself.

Lopez shared in her fan newsletter:


“I was in my late 20’s and I thought I was invincible. Until one day, I was sitting in a trailer, and all the work and the stress it brought with it, coupled with not enough sleep to recuperate mentally, caught up with me.

I went from feeling totally normal to thinking about what I needed to do that day and all of a sudden, I felt as if I couldn’t move. I was completely frozen.”

Ben Affleck‘s wife revealed how the constant hustling – from spending long hours on set; hitting the music studio in the night, to attending media events on the weekends, affected her health adversely. She admitted that she made her work “an all-consuming priority” and let her own “self-care needs go completely.”

A Panic Attack Changed Jennifer Lopez’s Perspective

Jennifer Lopez wasn’t the fitness freak she is today. While everyone dreams of that perfect body and ageless skin, Lopez took a real hit before she could prioritize her health. In the newsletter, the This Is Me… Then artist admitted that she had a panic attack caused by exhaustion. She was taken to the hospital by her security guard.

Lopez was strictly instructed by the doctor to take at least 7 to 9 hours of good night’s sleep, eliminate caffeine, and focus on exercise. This was when the actress saw the light and began her healthy journey. She famously said:


 “I realized how serious the consequences could be of ignoring what my body and mind needed to be healthy.”

Today, the singer-actress believes in the power of positive affirmations. She constantly reminds herself, “I am youthful and timeless. I tell myself that every day, a few times a day.” Apart from sharing her fitness regime, Lopez continues to focus on the importance of a good night’s sleep and a balanced diet.
