According to Stoke manager Tony Pulis, the striker is trying to cope with a family tragedy which he believes affected his performances in recent weeks.
Jones responded with his first goal in six games in the victory against Everton on Saturday.
Next up is a trip to Old Trafford and a meeting with Manchester United on Tuesday.
In an interview on the club`s official website, Jones said: "When it comes to football it does tend to take your mind off stuff.
"Problems are part of life and sometimes it does tend to spill over into football. In football you have to enjoy every day that you have because when its finished, that's it."
