Mind Over Body

From rationalwiki

The phrase "mind over body" represents the concept that the mind, through exercise or other methods, can be utilised to allow the body to defy its own limits. There are some sensible interpretations of this, but the concept also has its fair share of woo. For example, some martial arts utilise kias (shouts) and other methods to increase endurance and strength, as this focuses the mind to be able to control muscle groups more effectively. At the less realistic end of the scale is the sort of claims seen in New Age philosophies that positive thinking can override both the body and even physics itself - such as the claim in New-Age-Luvvie-Fest What the Bleep Do We Know? that "if you believe it with all your heart, you can walk on water."
