It looks like Turkey Day is going to have to wait for Jessica Alba!

The California native has always loved Thanksgiving and grew up cooking for the holiday with her mother, whipping up favorites like turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, roasted veggies, kale salad, pies and mashed potatoes -- the works.

So when the 33-year-old star found out that her next film would get in the way of celebrating this year, she did the only thing any food-loving, mother-of-two would do. She decided to reschedule.

"It's going to be an impromptu Thanksgiving," the Golden Globe-nominated actress said. "It's a little sad, but we'll just do it on a different day."

Clearly, Alba has a hectic life. She's raising two young daughters, Honor and Haven, with her husband, Cash Warren, has a blossoming career and her own empire to run at The Honest Company, which creates and sells safe, eco-friendly home and baby products.

With all that balancing, the "Sin City" star is getting good at making time for herself. She joked that in her 20s she hated to work out, but now she has grown to enjoy it.

"I am pulled in so many different directions, it's almost like meditation to me," Alba said of her time at the gym.

Alba says that "me" time is essential in leading a balanced life. The stunning star, who recently helped promote a survey from ZICO Premium Coconut Water about how to use one extra hour every day, often uses quick walks as a way to take a break, or makes time for coffee with friends. She has even incorporated the help of an iPhone app to help -- "Mindful Meditation" -- which helps a user sit and meditate for a few minutes at a time.

"Any kind of time that eases your soul [is important]," Alba said. "If you're not feeling good and happy, how can you spread the love to anyone else?"
