Jessica Alba says that when it comes to balancing her personal and professional lives, she doesn’t stick to a “consistent schedule”.

The 34-year-old star is a successful actress, entrepreneur and mother to two young daughters with husband Cash Warren.

And in a new interview, Jessica has revealed that she has no secret on how to balance her personal and professional lives, but knows she has to make herself a priority.

"These days, it’s all about the hustle and bustle of life and being pulled in so many different directions,” she told the Huffington Post. “You have to take time to take care of yourself and you have to make yourself a priority. You can’t be the last one on the list that matters anymore.”

Jessica spoke as her partnership with Zico Premium Coconut Water was revealed. But the actress insists she has never been one to promote something for the sake of it, and truly believes in the company’s 'Crack Life Open' campaign.

"It's more than just selling you a drink," she said. "It’s more about a philosophy and a take on life."

Jessica is kept busy even on her days off, by six-year-old Honor and three-year-old Haven. And the stunning star often wishes she had more time to spare.

"I don’t know how to balance time. I don’t have a consistent schedule for anything," she said. "I love when I can take a couple of spin classes a week, take a couple hot yoga classes a week and have a girls night out and a date night once a week, that would be great. Does that happen? No. But that’s my ideal. I wish there were more hours in the day!"
