For the past few years, I have watched food become a pillar of a person’s identity or morality.
What started out as a celebrity sharing their “day on a plate” in the Sunday newspaper, evolved into a monster of ‘influencers’ Instagramming every healthy meal they could photograph in a day.
If you checked all the boxes of vegan, paleo, and something activated to the side you were fundamentally a better human being than someone like me.
Who, for the record, has never consumed an activated anything in my life.
While food has become our moral high ground, sleep – or lack thereof – has silently become the next badge of honour.
“I don’t really sleep that much. I get four hours… I’m probably a miserable b*tch but that’s just how it is,” she said.
Like many other women, Jacenko is staying up working, after putting her two kids to bed.
“I definitely check my emails on the hour throughout the night and I respond,” she explained at a seminar this year in May, according to News.com.au.
“If anyone emails me, they know I’ll respond within 30 seconds.”
To be perfectly honest, after reading Jacenko’s sleeping habits, I wanted to cry.
I’m not exaggerating; I wanted to cry in that I’m-trying-so-hard-but-no-matter-how-hard-I-try-it-will-never-be-enough kind of way.
