Roxy Jacenko Reveals She Only Sleeps For 4 Hours A Night

by | Nov 29, 2017

PR maven Roxy Jacenko may run her own successful business, but the mother-of-two isn’t about to sugarcoat how much hard work it takes to do just that.

Recently, the 37-year-old revealed she only gets four hours of sleep per night, due to emailing clients.

Speaking to Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS radio, Roxy said she gets up at 7am because she is working most of the night. 

“I don’t really sleep that much,” she said. “I get four hours … I’m probably a miserable b**tch but that’s just how it is.”

Roxy also spoke candidly about her husband’s year in jail and how she managed with the kids, her business, and her breast cancer diagnosis. 

“I look back now and I can’t believe it never fell to sh*t,” she said.

“It plateaued my business, and now it’s going up and up and up which is really good. We were at 30 seats in the office, and now we are about to run out.”

Earlier this year, at her ‘In Conversation With…’ seminar, Roxy went into further detail about her sleeping habits: “I definitely check my emails on the hour throughout the night and I respond.”

“If anyone emails me, they know I’ll respond within 30 seconds,” she explained, as reported by Newscorp.

Women Fleeing Domestic Violence Can Now Receive A One-Off Support Payment

It’s been labelled the shadow pandemic and the fact remains that for many women across Australia, domestic violence is a lived reality that doesn’t discriminate by age, occupation, or socio-economic status. Researchers have found that during Covid-19 lockdowns, there was a surge in family and domestic violence, with agencies experiencing a surge in demand as nearly half their clients reported an increase in controlling behaviours. 

As many who have lived through such turmoil and trauma can attest, the roadmap to fleeing such situations at home can be fraught with challenges and extremely difficult to navigate, particularly when such bureaucracy makes it even harder. Now, it’s been announced that women fleeing a violent relationship will be given a one-off $5,000 payment as part of a federal government trial scheme. 

Known as the “escaping violence payment scheme,” the government has set aside $144.5 million over the next two years to give women $1,500 cash, with the remainder to pay for goods and services, bond, school fees and other necessaries to establish a new safe home. UnitingCare Network will be tasked with delivering the payments while helping link women and their children with relevant community services. 

As the Daily Telegraph reports, “An analysis of domestic violence data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that while it is more common for women from poorer areas, women from high socio-economic areas are not immune from experiencing partner violence.”

As Women’s Safety Minister Anne Ruston explained, the trial has been introduced with the aim to help women overcome the financial barriers that might deter them from leaving a violent relationship. “We know that financial hardship as well as economic abuse - which may involve interfering with work or controlling or withholding money - reduces women’s ability to acquire and use money and makes it difficult to leave violent relationships,” she said. 

“The payments will assist people who need financial support to leave. We know the size of the house a woman is fleeing doesn’t matter. Often she bundles the kids into the car, maybe the dog too and they leave with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.”

To be eligible for a payment, women must be facing financial stress and have some evidence of domestic violence such as a referral from a family and domestic violence service provider with a risk assessment and safety plan, or an AVO, court order or police report. As UnitingCare Australia National Director Claerwen Little said, “We believe that all people, especially women and their children, have the right to live freely and without fear, and this payment is an important step forward to ending violence against women and children.”
