The 52-year-old icon recently gave fans an insight into her morning routine and as well as a rigorous skincare routine, Jennifer shared the wellness practice she never missed. In a bare-faced video on Instagram, JLo said: "Right outside my shower I have a little box of affirmation cards. This is the affirmation card I pulled out today, it says, 'Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy and you and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.'

Continuing with her routine, JLo says: "I feed my soul with an affirmation, not looking at my phone yet. Just setting myself up right for the day with the right intentions and the right thoughts, feeling positive."

The A-lister isn't the only celebrity who loves affirmations. Presenter Rochelle Humes regularly shares her morning affirmation cards on Instagram and former Emmerdale star Charley Web does the same.

Affirmations are a useful tool in our anti-anxiety toolbox. As strange as it might feel, the way you talk to yourself makes a huge difference. Psychologist Lucy Spicer says it's about reassuring yourself of how capable you are. Some helpful affirmations include: "I can get through this, I have done it before," "I am strong," "I am resilient," "This will not last," "I breathe in relaxation and breathe out tension".
