In an interview with tabloid, the 39-year-old actress, who gave birth to her first child last November, said that family is now her priority.
"Life has become quieter, which is very nice. I am spending a lot of time with her and just enjoying being a family," she said,
Rai Bachchan described motherhood as a beautiful experience that "makes you recognise so many things in life that you never realised before", adding: "Your priorities, your feelings and your future completely changes."
The actress, who this year travelled to Cannes with her baby, explained how she juggles motherhood with work.
"I have learnt to manage my time better with work so that my family time isn't compromised too much. I prefer to take her with me on travels when the commitments are not too tight. My mother accompanies me to help with Aaradhya, so I am blessed that way."
She also offered some advice to working mums, saying: "Don't be too hard on yourself, and take time to relax and connect with your newborn. At times this seems impossible but it's an essential part of juggling motherhood and a career successfully.
"If anything, you should do more of that so you are refreshed and positive when you're around your child and family."
While the Dhoom actress has been the focus of media scrutiny for not losing her post-pregnancy weight, Rai Bachchan said that she is not concerned with the attention.
"It isn't surprising because in this industry it comes as standard; when an actress becomes a mother the focus isn't on her health, it's how fast she loses her weight," she explained.
"I don't worry about this. To me, the wellbeing and the health of my family is more important than focusing on going back to my pre-pregnancy body in miracle time. It should not be taken to extremes."
The former Miss World said that she will be back in front of the camera when the right role comes along.
"I like to choose roles that are meaningful and where I can contribute to the telling of a story. When the right role arises I will be back in front of the camera."
Rai Bachchan, was recently voted 'Best Mother' in an online poll.
