Hi, I'm Charlene

Let’s talk about how to boost your performance and well-being.

High achievers often find themselves trapped in a cycle of chronic stress and anxiety, poor quality sleep, and persistent weight struggles, all of which can undermine your professional and personal well-being. Perhaps you’re trying one health and wellness trend after another, without seeing any results. Fortunately, there are simple, science-backed strategies that can help you to reclaim your health and vitality without resorting to false hacks that do nothing but cost you time and money. This episode busts the many myths behind what routines do and don’t work, and will show you the best ways to start reversing the effects of stress, and enhance your overall wellness, allowing you to perform at your best, both in your career and personal life.

Dr Julia Jones is a neuroscientist and leading habit hacking expert, who has recently become a prominent figure on platforms like TikTok and Instagram through debunking wellness myths. As the author of several pivotal works on applied neuroscience and nutrition science, Dr Jones has translated her expertise into sustainable wellness strategies. Known for her critical stance on traditional, unsustainable wellness solutions, Dr Jones advocates for simple, lasting lifestyle changes.

Now I’m out there myth-busting and irritating the fitness industry by pointing out all of these statistics.
