While healthy eating is a proven way to improve one's health and mood, a positive mental diet is an even more powerful tool for us to transform our lives. With commitment and focus, we can become happier and more confident in only a week!

Emmet Fox was an Irish author, healer, and minister whose life goal was to encourage people to develop their God-like qualities.

The Seven Day Mental Diet is a practical philosophical pamphlet that has influenced psychological and religious thought since its publication in 1935. Fox explains the specific steps to controlling your thoughts and freeing yourself of predispositions, anxiety, and depression by focusing exclusively on positive thoughts diligently for one week.
