These 7 things can help you improve your life. In as little as 7 days. They can help you gain more positive control over your life. They can help boost your self-esteem.  Together, in as little as 7 days, they can improve you physically, mentally and spiritually.

Why 7 days? Because everyone is different. Some people may benefit immediately, others may see improvement each day and some people simply tend to respond more slowly. The 7-ways-in-7-days program is designed to accomodate the different response rates and to produce benefits within 7 days.
