Sweeney, 37, originated the "Days" role of Samantha "Sami" Brady when she was a teen and has been the host of the weight-themed reality show "The Biggest Loser" since 2007.
"I have never had more than a two-week vacation [since starting on 'Days'] in that whole time and, yeah, it's awesome," Sweeney said on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
"I I love Sami, I love Salem, I love my job, I love daytime, I love the fans, I love everything about it," Sweeney said, adding she simply wants to spend more time with her family. "My daughter just turned 5 and my son is 9, and I just want to be with them and enjoy my last year."
