5-Minute Strategies

Here’s the iHeart Radio Interview with Dr Marilyn Joyce

iHeart Radio Interview: January Jones of Sharing Success Stories Interviews Dr Marilyn Joyce on… INSTANT E.N.E.R.G.Y.™: The 5 Keys to Unlimited Energy and Vitality!   About a week ago, before my iHeart radio interview, I was contemplating the fact that we are already into the month of September – and the Holiday season will be upon us before we know it! And then I had an epiphany! And it started with a question that just seemed to pop into my brain… Is there a specific month in your life that stands out? Or year? Or both? Well, September is the month that really stands out for me (beyond the infamous 9/11 event)…it was the month I was first diagnosed with cancer. And the year that stands out is 1985! Seems so long ago on one hand. And like yesterday on another! And I remember feeling completely overwhelmed, shocked to my core, scared beyond words, in complete disbelief, disappointed, frustrated, and even angry…How could this be happening to me? Why me? (I was a great victim back then!) I was only 35 years old! Flip forward 4 years to September of 1989…yes, September again…I found myself chronically fatigued, stressed out, burned out, and at the end of the road! Given less than 2 weeks to live, and reduced to sucking on ice chips, unable to eat or drink anything, and living in a wheelchair, things looked pretty darned grim. Fact was I couldn’t do anything that took longer than 5 minutes. Simply no energy for anything! So, out of necessity, we developed really easy 5-minute strategies, and systems, for both myself, and my caregivers! And they included everything from shifting mindset instantly, to 5-minute exercises, to simple quick and healthy smoothies, to increasing energy through a simple 5-minute breathing process…you name it, we created it! Years later, many of these strategies were introduced to the world in a book called 5 Minutes to Health. But it really only addressed nutrition…and a little bit about the other aspects of healthy living. So, it became a burning desire, deep within soul, to share the whole 9 yards with everyone and anyone who entered my world. And that led to the emergence of...

The 5 Keys To Kick Cancer In The Can® Today!

By on Jun 14, 2015 in 5-Minute Strategies, Announcements, Blog |

Got Cancer? Feeling Overwhelmed With Uncertainty and Fear? Too Many People Giving You Too Much Advice? And You Just Don’t Know What To Do First? Okay, here’s 5 very quick tips – and see image below for how to get more great tips: 1) Stop worrying right now! I know, that’s often easier said than done. But the fact is that what we focus on expands. Focus on the worry and fear – and you’ll get more to be worried and fearful about. Anyone who has ever overcome an illness thought about only one thing: getting well and staying that way! So ask yourself: “Am I moving towards health – or away from illness?” Moving towards health, means that’s all you’re thinking about – with no time or energy spent on the doubt or fear of not making it. Moving away from illness means that your energy is spent on the fear of the illness and the sense of dragging it along behind you like a heavy weight or burden in your life. 2) When the worry and stress happens – as soon as it starts, stop everything and take a “breather”! A calming breathing pattern is to first exhale all of your air fully through your mouth. And then slowly breathe in through your nose to a count of 4, hold to a count of 2 – 4, and then very slowly exhale through your mouth to a count of 8. Feel all of that worry and stress simply evaporate... 3) Call an optomistic positive friend for support. Be sure it’s someone who understands what you’re going through, and will listen as you complain, whine, rant, or cry, but only fully supports you in shifting gears from dwelling on the dark side of the illness, to embracing the lessons to be learned from this journey. 4) Watch a comedy, whether it’s a funny movie or an old “I Love Lucy” show.Pick the funniest movies and shows possible. Laugh your self silly. Laugh until you pee your pants! Science has proven that laughter may just be the best medicine. I mean think about this for a minute: it’s impossible to be fearful, anxious and worried when you’re laughing uproariously....

5 Healthy Holiday Tips for Cancer Patients & Caregivers

By on Jun 14, 2015 in 5-Minute Strategies, Blog, Holiday Inspiration |

5 Quick Tips for Cancer Care Over the Holidays and Beyond… ~~~~~~~~~~ No doubt about it, dealing with cancer is never easy, but especially over the holidays. We all need some quick and easy tips and strategies to help us keep it together – and some inspiration to guide us along the way. Right? ~~~~~~~~~~ Well, I just wanted to share with you 5 top tips that my patients and clients and I have used over the years that really work! And I’ll keep this brief since I realize that everyone is hustling to get things done before the onslaught of family and friends arrive over the next day or so. ~~~~~~~~~~ We’ve all heard the saying about living today as if it’s the last day we have.Well, for many of us who’ve been on the cancer journey, that actually became a reality! At least temporarily until we beat the sucker! So my advice is to stop living by everyone else’s rules and start creating your own. Choose where you want to be, when you want to be there, who you want to be with, and for how long. And if you need to skip a meal or a social gathering because you’re tired and need a nap just do it! If you’re feeling pain, sadness, fear, or even joy, just go ahead and FEEL it! This is your life. Live it your way…Without apology Add some fun and creativity to your life.Take a favorite traditional, high fat, high sugar, holiday recipe, and re-invent it into a healthier leaner version. I have posted my fabulously delicious, trimmed down eggnog recipe on Facebook, so drop on by and print it off – and use it. And then take one recipe you love and make it better – for your health! And of course tasty at the same time! Practice gratitude – for everything! My rule whenever life becomes too hectic and stressful over the holidays is to simply stop everything. And then gaze out the window at the miracles of nature all around us, especially the cloud formations (see the photo to the right), and express gratitude to God and the Universe for providing this beauty for us to behold....
