Duelism, from the Latin word duo, means the division of into two aspects; duality. The mind and body are not identical, therefore need separate things. Aristotle and Plato, are just two ancient philosophers who elaborated on this point of view. Duelism is a theory or system of thought that regards a domain of reality in terms of two independent principles, especially mind and matter. Duelism is also explained Biblically as the universe contains opposed powers of Good and Evil, balanced equals. Therefore, as our Mind and Body are two defferent beings, they have different needs. It is then important to take care of each, individually.
Taking care of our physical bodies is an important element in taking care of our whole selves. We need to listen to our bodies when they tell us they are in pain or not feeling well. We must excersise and eat well in order to maintain them.
Our bodies cannot work hard for us, if we don’t work hard on them. Our emotional well being is also an important factor. When our mind is in despair, it affects our physical selves. Although stress is a mental state, it can leave us with physical ailments. Tension headaches and stiff muscles are just minor ways that stress can affect our bodies.
Our mental health affects our physical body. Our physical body affects our mental health. As such, it is highly important to take care of both, as individuals.
