My name is Andrea Schmook and I’m a senior, and HolisticSeniors is my blog. I retired from my executive director job, moving to Los Angeles from Anchorage, Alaska in 2012. Although I have many friends and family in Alaska, I moved to Los Angeles to be closer to my two adult children to enjoy my time with them as I’m growing older gracefully.
Since 1979, I studied and practice a variety of self-help and holistic approaches to live a richer, fuller and healthier life. In 1976, my life fell apart and so did I. It took me eight years to pick up all the pieces, and like a puzzle, I put them back together. It’s been a pretty tumultuous journey at times and rather extraordinary. Now, I have a great life and I’m very happy, content and at peace. There isn’t anything I would change about my life because I’ve grown spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. No matter what happened, it all worked together for my good. You can learn more about me from my mental health blog by clicking on the “Mind” tab on the menu at the top of this page, and you will be taken to my blog, AndreaSchmook.com.
