"Great day back on set today with my Neighbours family 💋✌🏼" Jodi shared with her Instagram followers.
Speaking to 9Honey about her break from the show, jodi confessed that she'd been "trying to push through", and explained that the commute between her home in Sydney and the Melbourne set had left her "exhausted".
"I was trying to push through, but everything builds and then you realise how exhausted you are and crumble a little bit," she told the publication.
"I am in Melbourne four days a week and in Sydney three days every week, and it's usually 12-hour days on set, so really huge days," she explained.
Jodi said she spent her time off from the soap at home with her daughter Aleeia, 5, who she shares with her ex-husband, Braith Anasta.
"I was just really run down. I had a couple of days at home where I was just laying on the couch, and she [Aleeia] played with her Barbies next to me, and every now and then she'd come and kiss me on the forehead," Jodi told 9Honey.
"I explained to her that I was feeling unwell and she's been sick herself. It was just about looking after each other."
Jodi said that she's much more in tune with her body since suffering exhaustion, and can recognise the signs before she gets too sick.
"It's about really acknowledging where I am at physically and mentally, just sitting with myself and understanding when I don't feel right or feel overwhelmed," she said.
"Otherwise I go into autopilot and all of a sudden I'm not stopping for a minute to realise I'm not doing too well.
"The main thing is to take some time out."
