"During tough times in her life she always tells friends 'light a candle for me,'" a source tells ET. "She has candles all over her house, because she finds the scent and light calming when life gets stressful. Her fans always send her candles as gifts, because they know she loves to burn them at night and sit by candlelight."
Spears explains in the same video that it's been six months since she was able to use her gym, which is something of a return to normal, we're told. "She spends endless hours in her gym and it's her favorite time of the day," the source explains. "Working out is one of the most important parts of her daily routine. It keeps her healthy and mentally occupied."
In a separate Instagram video posted Wednesday, Spears said that she hadn't seen boyfriend Sam Asghari in weeks due to quarantining and, "I have actually lost weight from missing him."
The two still remain in touch every day, a source close to Asghari tells ET, through phone calls and FaceTime. The 26-year-old personal trainer is sheltering at home at his Beverly Hills apartment, where he has been partaking in his own isolation workouts, as well as continuing work through his fitness website and going on auditions via Zoom.
