Xenophon was a Greek historian, writer and military leader. Whilst not really directly known for his relation to wellbeing, his writings included information about Socrates’ life and teachings.
Socrates is credited with being one of the founders of Western Philosophy, and probably the first widely known to focus on moral and ethical thoughts. Wellbeing itself may not have been a term used in Ancient Greek, but how to live a good life was discussed – often by Socrates “in the market square.”
Socrates did not write down any of his own dialogue or musings; but his students and contemporaries, including Plato and Xenophon, did.
- What do you do that supports someone else, and that you enjoy?
- What do you do for someone else that plays to your strengths?
- Is there anything that you bring to your family, work or a group of your friends that no-one else does?
- Who do you let support you in any way?
- What could you ask someone else to do for you that drains you, but energises them?
