Though they may have competing talk shows, when it comes to health, these doctors forget about any rivalry.
Being a doctor is not a stress free life, so Dr. Oz practices transcendental meditation to help calm and center himself.
He figured Dr. Phil could reap similar benefits from meditating too, so they actually met up and Dr. Oz tried to teach him.
"Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil met recently and Oz gave him some friendly advice about coping with stress. Oz said that transcendental meditation helps him deal with his grueling work schedule and his health has benefited from it, so Phil should try it for himself. Oz even offered to help Phil through the process, they exchanged numbers, and he told Phil to call him up whenever he needed help.
Open to the idea, Phil began to try meditating. The problem was, he couldn’t shut his mind off, and he was constantly agitated and checking his phone all the time. Phil told Oz the difficulty he was having with switching off, so Oz offered Phil a few solutions. He told Phil to leave his phone in the other room and turn the device off. He even gave him some CDs that featured the calming sounds of ocean waves to help him clear his mind. This just drove Phil crazy and he quit less than a month later."
Ha! We guess Dr. Phil is just a high energy person!
We feel like that's the exact kind of person who could benefit from meditation.
But if he's not into it, then we guess he'll just have to find another way to cope.
Think about your health, Dr. Phil!
