It’s normal for us to get so lost in the constant hustle and grind of daily life that we forget to take care of ourselves.

When our bodies are at a sub-optimal state, it seeps into every aspect of our lives.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Change Guide for Growth Claire Jones is here to share with us the seven areas that we should focus on to be productive and effective in any task we take.

Spoiler alert: It’s all in our brains!

Tune in to this episode: Seven Areas of Your Life to Prioritize for Optimal Performance with Claire Jones.

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Connecting time is for our brain’s need for social connection. It can’t differentiate a broken heart from a broken leg. If you catch yourself doom-scrolling on social media, take a break. Call up a friend and meet! Your body will thank you for it.

✔️ Playtime releases happy hormones. It gives us a chance to experiment in non-threatening scenarios. Doodling and coloring can help us hone that imaginative and creative muscle and improve different skill sets.

✔️ Downtime brings innovation. Daydreaming allows us to tap into different areas of our brains simultaneously, causing new connections to form – extra helpful when we’re dealing with complex problems. That’s why all your best ideas are born in the shower.

✔️ Focus time leads to a flow state. This is where challenge and competence meet. Your brain thrives when you’re completely engrossed in a single task. No more multi-tasking!

✔️ Time-in is meditation. This is when you use non-judgmental self-observation to achieve self-regulation. You can make better decisions because you’ve formed a solid foundation of awareness.

✔️ Physical time primes your brain for more learning. Incorporate any type of exercise within your week to achieve a clearer mind so you can seamlessly go through all your activities for the day.


Claire Jones is the Change Guide for Growth who compassionately supports conscious visionaries as they navigate transitional spaces in their personal and professional lives with empowering rituals and elevated wellness practices.
