MANILA -- What makes "Bet On Your Baby" host Judy Ann Santos happy?

In an interview for the May issue of the magazine Good Housekeeping, Santos, who appears on the cover with her kids, shared tips on how to live your life to the fullest.

Here are her six secrets to happiness. 

Secret #1: Learn to relax and laugh more.

Having three children is not an easy task. But Santos and husband Ryan Agoncillo have learned that instead of worrying too much, they should instead make happy moments with their kids.

Secret #2: Trust that God will give you what you need at the right time. 

Santos admitted that she waited for years to find her Mr. Right. But she believes God gave her Agoncillo at the right time. For her, Agoncillo is not only her significant other, but her ultimate confidante.

Secret #3: Share your blessings.

Pay it forward. This is one of the things that Santos wants her children to learn. The actress supports Touch A Heart Foundation, which helps Aeta children and families in Zambales.

Secret #4: You can't please everyone. So don't waste your time trying.

As one of the most celebrated actresses in show business, Santos has mastered the "art of deadma" so as not to get affected with everything bad she sees and hears.

Secret #5: Be good to yourself.

Months after giving birth to her youngest daughter Luna, Santos decided to give herself some time. With a new mindset and a healthy lifestyle, the actress said moms like her should make time to really take care of themselves.

Secret #6: Live with gratitude in your heart.

For Santos, part of having a positive disposition in life is to be grateful even for the simplest things. The actress said she's thankful that her kids are healthy and are living a normal life. The actress added that she is just happy to "live in a house that's full of laughter and love."
