Bec Judd is busy. Actually, busy is an understatement.
The 35-year-old is a mum-of-four, radio and TV host, and a newly published author.
Lately, she’s also been working as a presenter on Postcards, a localised travel show, and she says it’s the “perfect job” to fit in with her hectic lifestyle.
“The best thing is, I like travelling, but I also like being home with my four kids by the end of the night. I’m in my own bed most nights, which is great. It’s perfect for me,” she tells Mamamia.
So, what does a typical day look like for one of Australia’s most on-the-go mums?
“Today I did school drop off, and then I’m hitting up two new cafes in Melbourne [for Postcards], then I’m travelling across town to a beauty bar that’s opened, and then it will be three o’clock, and I’ll be back home by four,” she says.
“That’s a typical day. We’re really efficient when we shoot, and I’ll usually be home for school pick-ups and drop-offs.”
Bec jokes that she’s “seen more of the world with my Postcards crew than with my family”, but she says it’s important for her to be at home as often as possible.
As for staying on top of it all, it helps that she’s super organised.
“I schedule everything for the week in my diary, and it’s a watertight schedule. My husband and I share our calendars, so we’re just on top of everything,” she says.
“I make sure that I have enough time to be a mum, I make sure I have enough time to do a little bit of exercise, because that keeps me sane, and then enough time to do life admin. If I work too much, some of those other things go out the window a little bit and I become a little bit stressed. I always make sure I have time for everything, and not just work, work, work.”
