Jennifer Lopez has changed her life.
The 52-year-old icon is opening up about the health scare that forced her to make some big life changes early in her career. Moral of the story: Go to sleep!
“There was a time in my life when I used to sleep” [three] To [five] hour a night. I would be on set all day and in the studio all night doing junkets and filming videos on weekends. I was in my late 20s and thought I was invincible,” Lopez wrote in her “On the JLo” newsletter. “Until one day, I was sitting in a trailer, and all I brought with it Work and stress, coupled with not getting enough sleep to be mentally healthy, happened to me.
“I went from feeling completely normal to thinking about what I should be doing that day and suddenly I felt like I couldn’t move… I was completely frozen,” she recalls. “I had prioritized my work so much and completely let go of my self-care needs (even taking ten minutes to sleep or rest). I found myself physically Felt paralyzed, I couldn’t see clearly and then the physical symptoms I was seeing began to frighten me and the fear increased on its own.
“Now I know it was a classic panic attack caused by exhaustion, but I had never heard the word at the time. My security guard on set came and picked me up and took me to the doctor,” Lopez continues . “By the time I got there, I could at least speak again and I was so nervous I thought I was losing my mind. I asked the doctor if I was going crazy. He said, ‘No ‘You’re not crazy. You need sleep… Get 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night, don’t drink caffeine, and if you’re going to work that much make sure you get your workout in.’ I realized how serious the consequences could be of ignoring what my body and mind needed to stay healthy – and that’s where my journey to wellness began.”
