Mens Sana in Corpore Sano A Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body

Ștefania Ciucur

Abstract


The human mind is like a garden where the gardener, that is the man, cultivates it to hisown content or according to his creative abilities. For the mind to be healthy, the temple in which itprevails must be one that is strong and healthy. So we come to a concept of synergy between the mindand the body, meaning that a healthy body is needed for a healthy mind and vice versa. The leitmotivin this context is the health, a polyvalent concept that needs to be approached from a holisticperspective. Health cannot be referred only from the bio-functional perspective of the organismwithout taking into account the psychic aptitude whose complex product is the human mind.Homeostasis or well-being of the organism is the objective of many concepts of physical and mentaldevelopment, and the techniques for maintaining this status range from physical exercise to complexconcepts of transpersonal meditation.
