Jennifer Lopez has urged stressed-out mothers to pamper themselves at least once a week to stop parenthood from driving them crazy.
The singer/actress juggles her responsibilities as a mum to two-year-old twins Max and Emme with her busy career, but insists she wouldn't be able to balance the two if she didn't take some time to herself to indulge in her favourite hobby.
She tells Redbook magazine, "We (mothers) tend to give away a lot. We take care of a lot of people, and we can't forget to take care of ourselves.
"If that means once a week you're going to go off without the kids... and just go shoe shopping - well, that's me, because I love shoes - or get a facial even if your sister thinks that's selfish, or join a Zumba (dance aerobics) class, or take a painting class, or whatever, you've just got to do it. It's just two hours a week, for heaven's sake.
"I'm not different from any other mom who feels the need to go out there and work to provide the best for their kids. I ask myself, 'What would make me the best me to my kids?' And that's being a happy, healthy individual who has a sense of fulfilment and can give them everything they need."
