London: Jennifer Lopez works out as much as possible because she feels that it is good for her soul.
The singer-actress, who has two-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with husband Marc Anthony, admits it`s sometimes hard to find the time to exercise but knows there are great benefits to be had, Contactmusic reported.
"It gets harder and harder, and now with babies it seems like there is no time! I have to get up before they do to exercise, but I know that it`s good for my body and mind," Lopez said.
"Sometimes that gets me to the gym more than the physical part, knowing that exercise is good for my soul and it makes the day go better. I`ve always been very athletic. Even though it`s harder to find the time right now, when I do work out I enjoy it," she added.
The 40-year-old beauty also credits her eating habits for her toned up figure.
"Feeling pressure is definitely part of the job. Everybody has pressures in their job, but I`ve always been pretty lucky. I`m not a big eater. I like to eat, but I don`t overeat," Lopez said.
