Jennifer Lopez is always on the go: from shutting down any stage she performs on to acting in one of television's biggest hit dramas. We all deserve some rest and relaxation during the holidays, thus we were happy to learn that the superstar takes the most wonderful time of the year to reflect and recover from everything the year throws at her.

In her latest Instagram post, she shares her annual Christmas ritual. "I have a ritual every year once everyone is asleep," reads the caption. "I like to go sit by the tree and think about the year that just went by. Check in on how I feel right in that moment about everything in my life. The magic of the sparkly tree always takes me away into my thoughts and feelings ... and this year I can honestly say my heart is full. This year had its ups and downs, but as I sit here in my living room with my coconuts sleeping soundly upstairs, all of us healthy, a house full of family and friends, I feel surrounded by love and overflowing with gratitude for the many new blessings in my life!!! Merry Christmas everyone." We love this tradition and think we may add it to our holiday customs from here on out.

With Shades of Blue returning to our TV screens and Bye Bye Birdie Live! in the works, it should be a joyous and busy 2017 for Lopez. We can't wait to see what she does next.
