Judy Ann Santos has a lot on her plate as an actress, restaurant owner, vlogger, and most especially as a mom.

In her previous presscon for a detergent brand, she detailed how she spends her days away from work.

She would wake up as early as 4 o'clock in the morning, bring her kids to school, and tend to her family's needs up until bedtime.

Having been a mother for 14 years and an actress for 34 years, Juday still shows no signs of slowing down.

What many of her fans probably don't know is that her secret to being on top of her game is actually finding time to slow down every day.

Her advice to moms is to take at least 30 minutes of "quiet time" daily.

Juday gets her much-needed break before going to work and as she travels back home.

She says, "Just to calm my mind for 30 minutes going to work and going back home, okay na ko, nakaka-reset na ko."


As the mom of Yohan, Lucho, and Luna, she knows that having a full day just to herself would only happen once in a blue moon. There were times when she would tell herself, "You cannot have this [rest day] for now."

So, as a solution, she makes it a point to have her short but sweet "me time" every once in a while.


"But you can always tell yourself, actually demand to yourself na you need to have that 30 minutes of quiet time."

Juday explains that taking this short pause is important for moms like her because it clears your mind from stress, and enables you to make better decisions all throughout the day.

She elaborates, "Because if not, I'll go nuts. Mas lalo akong walang magagawa.

"And I know myself when I let go of things na I have to do, pag napagod ako, napapagod talaga ako and I just let go.

"I have that automatic shut-off everyday. Na-achieve ko na siya everyday."


Juday also mentions that her kids themselves encourage her and husband Ryan to rest after a long day's work.

And that, among many other things, has made her grateful for having them.

"They support us," she beams.

She appreciates it when they tell her, "Mom, you're so tired. You really have to work?"

Juday would answer "yes," and they would respond, "Okay, but you have to rest at some point."

She adds, "Parang sila iyong nanay at tatay. May mga ganoon naman sila."
