She shared, “Taking care of your mind, your body, your soul. Those always work. They’re the fundamentals of any sport or anything that you do.” Further, she revealed.
“I always feel like, OK, if I’m feeling too tired, what am I neglecting? Am I neglecting my sleep? Am I not working out consistently? Have I let that go? Do I need to get back on that? Whatever it is, am I not drinking enough water? Why do I feel this way? If something’s off, just check the basics, and for me that that always works.”
Although Lopez acknowledged that it can be difficult to maintain a daily routine amidst life’s busyness, she believes that checking the basics when feeling off is essential. She added that neglecting one thing can lead to more things going wrong. Lopez also shared that she experienced a little PTSD while planning her second wedding to Affleck.

Jennifer Lopez previously opened up about her struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) while planning her second wedding to Affleck. The couple’s reunion after nearly two decades apart was an iconic love story, but for JLo, it came with its own set of challenges.
During Wednesday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live Show, the Halftime performer revealed that the wedding planning process was “so stressful,” and she felt pressure for things to work out perfectly this time around.
Both couples were previously engaged in 2002 but called off their wedding just days before it was due to take place in 2004. After going their separate ways and starting their own families, the couple reconnected and tied the knot in 2022.
However, the planning process brought up feelings of anxiety and stress for Lopez, leading her to admit that, “20 years ago, we were supposed to get married, and it kinda all fell apart back then.” Further, the singer shared that she felt pressure for things to work out perfectly this time around. “[I] absolutely had a little PTSD.”
The NHS explains that individuals with PTSD often relive traumatic events, adding more.
“Someone with PTSD often relives the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks and may experience feelings of isolation, irritability, and guilt. They may also have problems sleeping, such as insomnia, and find concentrating difficult.”
While it’s normal to experience upsetting thoughts after a traumatic event, it’s crucial to seek help if symptoms persist for more than four weeks or significantly impact daily life. Despite the challenges, Lopez is moving forward with Affleck.
