Put Old on Hold changes lives - and can change yours, too!

I have been away from work 2 years and noticed my health failing this year. I picked up your book and voila! I am a new person already. Thank you.

I tell all my clients that reading your newsletter and your book Put Old on Hold is a necessity. You bring unique and essential information on aging that we do not gain from a physician or counselors, specializing in the aging field. Your pharmaceutical background and knowledge is a real blessing.

Your book and your message is a trailblazer in my view. It will help give people in their 70's and 80's a new profile. Many thanks for all the work and courage that went into the book.

Forget acting "age-appropriately"! I'm going to pester you like a two-year-old and insist that you MUST read this book! But wait... assumming two year olds act a certain way is exactly the start of what can keep us from reaching our ageless potential! Put Old on Hold provides practical advice for keeping yourself healthy and attractive. More importantly, Put Old on Hold is an attitude: one that celebrates life and our potential for greatness! It wasn't until I read this book that I really stopped to consider: how much of my life is influenced by others' perceptions of what I should be doing at "my age"? This book has been truly liberating for me and I know it will be for you, too. I encourage you to read it and consider how you'll make today and the next more fabulous for yourself and others.

Barbara Morris' Put Old on Hold is what we are all waiting for. It excels in the single most important aspect that most information overloaded anti-aging books, decorated by well known doctors, fail. To really Put Old on Hold you need to change your mindset!

Put Old on Hold is a out of the box new philosophy which will lead you to the journey of your life. Barbara revolutionizes the way 99% of the people feel about growing old and shows how you can “be in charge of your life as long as you choose”.

Barbara Morris walks her talk. At 81, she is as energetic, enthusiastic and creative as many of us wished we were in our thirties. In Put Old on Hold, Barbara arms us with practical knowledge and useful tips on how to achieve Super Health for your brain and body now and 20+ years from now.

Put Old on Hold disputes the traditional concept of retirement that leads to physical, mental and emotional aging. Barbara offers new ways to really live our “second life” with power and vitality that will keep us much younger than our chronological age.

We feel that most exciting topic of Put Old on Hold is how to change our attitude paradigm and stop the “Seven Deadly Sins of Negative Self Talk”. Ainsley was quite shocked that at age 47 she was self-talking herself old!

Barbara, we applaud your book. We follow your journey and recommend it to anyone that wants to Put Old on Hold. Bravo for Barbara!

I bought your book about 7 months ago, and it helped me a great deal. I fell 18 months ago, and I stopped working out as my doctor advised. Between my laziness and the pain medication came low self-esteem. In a few months I gained 35 pounds.

I bought your book and read it in 2 days. I started your “regimen” by taking supplements, monitored my food intake, and wrote down everything I ate. I also started exercising again—slowly and realizing that it would take awhile.

It was tough, but I stuck it out. Today, I’m almost down to my normal weight. I feel so much better physically—I can do all the things I used to do, including riding my bike 30 miles 3 times a week. I bought a treadmill, so I’m jogging again. Now I can’t use the weather as an excuse. But I don't need any excuses. I love to work out!

I have some bad days, like everyone else, but I get over it more quickly now. I don’t want to remember what my life was like before reading your book. I can’t tell you how grateful I am. I have shared your wisdom with many of my friends.

I am an example that if you read your book and believe, you will “Put Old on Hold.”

I have just finished your wonderful book, Put Old on Hold. I LOVE IT. I wish it were possible that we could sit on my sofa with a cup of tea and talk for hours. Thank you so much. I just smile every time I look at you on the cover.

I will be 62 years of age November 25th. I have always been very careful to eat healthy, exercise, get enough sleep, and drink plenty of water. I’m so thankful for my good health.

I’m already looking forward to your new book.


I couldn’t put down Barbara Morris’s new book Put Old on Hold. Save her ability to grab me by the funny bone with personal satire, her book is a self-contained, anti-aging capsule. As a practicing pharmacist, she gives us many laugh-out-loud accounts of the degeneration of human consumption—sorry Emeril—and likens common American cuisine to, well, something like turtle turds.

Put Old on Hold challenges readers to create their own assault on the aging process. At one point, I put the book down and took an inventory of my herbal, vitamin, and mineral supplements and revisited my yoga exercise video library.

The most exciting message of Put Old on Hold is its ability to give hope. Hope is a most important commodity in a world of faster, better, more. Barbara gives us straight talk in a practical, been-there-done-that format. Here’s just a sample of lessons learned:

The power of positive self-talk

Secrets for “thinking” yourself young

The honest truth about the illusion of retirement

Key secrets to vitality, anti-aging, and better living in a second lifetime

After reading Barbara’s book, I believe anyone, regardless of age, will be excited about a future that may once have seemed uncertain. Put Old on Hold will be a reference I’ll continue to use today, tomorrow, and 50 years from now.

Thanks to her, I’m not afraid anymore. If at age 75, Barbara Morris tells me I can be just like her, Bam! I’m all over it.

The good news is, you’re alive and kicking. The bad news is, today you’re a day older than you were yesterday. According to author Barbara Morris, there is a lot of good news abut aging if you can ditch the bad habits. A pharmacist by profession, Morris is a spunky woman in her mid-seventies who works and will talk to anyone willing to listen about not aging gracefully, but fending off the process with a passion.

Her book, Put Old on Hold is a must read for anyone in their fourth decade and beyond, and it’s worth rereading once a year to review what it takes to stay healthy. Filled with irrefutable information, graphic examples, and caveats about caving to social expectations, Morris offers a passionate and provocative approach to delaying what most of us consider the inevitable.

If you want to stay young, healthy and vital as you age, this book will give you exactly what you need. Enjoy reviewing www.PutOldonHold.com for more information on an illuminating and iconoclastic book written by a woman who knows and cares. She talks the talk and walks the walk. I also recommend her excellent newsletter.
