Dr. Oz & Liv Tyler On Relationships & Meditation
On Thursday, December 13 the David Lynch Foundation hosted "A Historic Night of Jazz," raising money for free meditation instruction to inner city kids, veterans and low-income communities and women and girls who have been victims of violence and abuse. YourTango got a chance to talk exclusively to guests Liv Tyler, Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife Lisa Oz, best-selling author of YOU: The Owner’s Manual about how Transcendental Meditation (TM) has affected their personal relationships.
Also at the event, actress Liv Tyler was showing her support and shared with YourTango how she feels meditation has been an positive influence on her personal life. "Meditation and being close to yourself helps everything in your life," Tyler said. "It helps myself make better decisions and be a better mother, and just deal with the daily stress of the modern world that we live in. It helps with everything."
Liv Tyler meditates to help deal with ADHD
Actress Liv Tyler has taken up meditation to help her deal with attention deficit disorder (ADD).
The Lord of the Rings star reveals she has long struggled with the behavioural condition, but she has learned to calm her mind by mastering the mental discipline.
She tells the New York Daily News, "I have ADD. It (Transcendental Meditation) definitely helps. It helps with everything."
Tyler, whose dad is Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler, isn't the only celebrity to seek the benefits of meditation - Jeff Bridges, Sting, Russell Simmons, Russell Brand and his estranged wife Katy Perry are also known to put their minds at ease through the peaceful practice.
