What is Heartiness?
Even though no one has asked we want to explain the word we have chosen for the lifestyle we have chosen. A little history first. When we decided that we needed to make big changes in how we lived, we searched for answers. Our searching quickly led us to multiple interrelated lifestyle choices that combined to cause the improvements we wanted. We realized that the lack of any of the changes jeopardized or compromised the others.
Knowing that a descriptive word or short phrase is preferred over a long explanation we sought the right word. Narrowing the word list down to a final choice was easy when we found Heartiness and it’s definition.
Heartiness – The condition of being sound in body. Fitness, health, healthiness, robustness, wellness, wholeness, wholesomeness. Related words are – Stamina, vigor, roughness, vigorousness, vitality, strength.
Like all of life, our seeking for Heartiness is a pursuit. We strive each day to Approach closer to Heartiness. We have said before that we will always practice.
A major part of the Heartiness Approach involves sharing and encouraging others. Along the way, we learn from others. We believe that as we all willingly and openly share what have gained, we all will benefit. This is a prime example of how the sum of the parts becomes greater than the whole.
