Homeostasis, from the Greek words for "same" and "steady," refers to any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival.

Homeostasis is a key concept in understanding how our body works. It means 'keeping things constant', and comes from two Greek words homeo, meaning 'similar' and stasis, meaning 'stable'. A more formal definition of homeostasis is: a characteristic of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, relatively constant condition of properties.
