Wrecked in time. The Mental Wellness in a Transition Period ABSTRACT: The essay analyses the pursuit of mental well-being by individuals in the postmodern transition. This well-being is found in the images of the athletic body conveyed by the mass-media. Yet, adaptability to a continuously changing life causes an excess of self-constriction. It is shown how sport reduces the stress by offering itself as a powerful therapeutic machine.
