Actress Liv Tyler has given a rare live concert at an intimate rooftop benefit in New York. And it came with a message.
Before the concert, Liv Tyler recorded a special video where she described how she has benefited in her life from practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Liv Tyler on the benefits of meditation
“I grew up around a lot of people – friends, family – who were meditating,” Liv Tyler said.
“Meditation is an incredible way of centering myself, of calming myself, and really getting perspective on where I am. The best thing about TM meditation is that it’s such a personal thing. I felt like reaching out and searching for ways to soothe myself and to help myself.”
Tyler lists better sleep and stress relief as two of the main benefits of meditating regularly.
“After I did the first week of TM, where I did it twice a day, from that moment on I’ve never been that frazzled or that tired ever again. It was like it sort of restored my body on such a deep level. There was like a week’s worth of sleep.
From that moment forward it was like I knew day and way. My whole nervous system reacted differently. I feel much less panicked and anxious and more calm about things. But I also feel deeply centered and rested.”

Globally, however, the beauty is perhaps best known for her portrayal of the Elf maiden Arwen Undómiel in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.
