Hardiness, in psychological terms, refers to a combination of personality traits that allows a person to withstand physical and psychological stress without developing physical illness. This mindset and personality type is one that views difficulties and stressful situations as personal challenges, rather than as roadblocks, and allows for personal growth in the face of adversities.
