MENTOR SPEAKS: Balance, Unsteadiness & Falls - DR. M.G. MOKASHI

Balance in life is an essential feature. Words, ‘equilibrium’ or ‘steadinesses also carry, the same shade of meaning. If a prefix ‘im’, ‘in’, or ‘un’ is attached respectively, the opposite meaning denotes unstable state. When a person is described as ‘imbalanced’, besides physical state, it could be related to mental state (temperament) at that time or even a state of being out of mind, often. Equilibrium refers to balanced physical forces or moment of   forces. Certain phobias also lead to imbalance e.g. fear for height. Fear is response to sensory perception; anxiety is its memorization while phobia replays reinforced fear reaction.
