But changing that habit isn't as hard as you might think. “We all want to be able to change the way we feel. Emotion is created by motion. The way you move determines the way you feel.

Self-help guru and life coach Tony Robbins has worked with former President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Hugh Jackman. For 21 years, he counseled one of the top financial traders in the world, Paul Tudor Jones. After the financial crisis of 2008, Robbins says he got angry that nothing was being done to help people who had lost their life savings. He knew he could be part of the solution following years of working with the brightest minds. "If I could interview the 50 smartest people on earth, figure out their strategy, then I can help anyone turn their money around," said Robbins. So he wrote the book, Money Master The Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom. "What you don't know will hurt you. One out of three Americans have $1,000 in retirement. They have no idea what it costs to manage their 401K. Ninety-six percent of mutual funds don't match the market. According to Forbes, the average fee is 3.17 percent. You are giving away 20 percent of your life savings," said Robbins. The solution: eliminate most mutual funds from your 401K. Another big tip: create and "all weather fund" by putting aside a small amount of money that continually grows. Learn more form Robbins in his new book. He'll be signing copies on Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014, at Bookends in Ridgewood, New Jersey at 7 p.m.

Inside a 300,000-square-foot greenhouse in Riverhead, Long Island, a farming revolution is flourishing. It's not what's being grown, but how it's being grown, and when. When most traditional farmers on the East Coast wrap up their growing seasons in late fall, Carl Gabrielsen is just getting started. "There's a tremendous market out here, we have, how many? 15 million people within a 40, 50 mile radius and we can't feed them, we can't feed ourselves anymore," Gabrielsen said of the winter season. But that's changing, he says. Gabrielsen's family has grown flowers since the 1950s, but they used to take the winter off. Then a few years ago Gabrielsen discovered a method that would enable him to produce viable crops in the offseason, regardless of the weather: hydroponic farming. Hydroponic farming is the practice of growing plants indoors and without soil. It originated more than 60 years ago recently became more popular for growing food. "Hydroponic farming has been on the upswing in general, particularly because of severe weather patterns," said Dickson Despommier, an emeritus professor of public health at Columbia University and the author of "The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century." Growing hydroponically allows farmers to cheat the seasons, but it's also brought fresh produce to places where there's no room to grow the traditional way. Despommier helped create the concept of vertical farming, which is just what it sounds like, growing food from the bottom up. It's happening around the world in cities like Newark where AeroFarms is opening one of the world's largest vertical farms in the coming months. "That's not going to be the only one, in another five years from now you're going to see lots of those springing up all over the place," Despommier said. "There is nothing you can't grow hydroponically." Out in Riverhead Gabrielsen Farms is producing up to 6000 heads of lettuce a week, as well as greens like bok choy and herbs like parsley and basil. As with any kind of farming, it starts with a seed but the only planting happens in small trays. Special LED lights simulate the sun's glow and warmth. Once the plants begin to grow they are moved to troughs where flowing water wets the roots every four to five hours, according to Gabrielsen. Contrary to what you might think, he says the process actually saves water. "Let's take a head of lettuce we grow outside in the field. You would need about 50 gallons of water to produce that head of lettuce," he said. "Here with hydroponics, we use between one and two gallons per head of lettuce." The water is recycled in three big tanks and Gabrielsen says there's no waste. There are also no pesticides. Gabrielsen uses insects to control the population of damaging aphids. "Years ago if you saw, let's say, an aphid, you would get out the pesticides and just blast away, ya know? Now we release parasitic wasps, they'll hatch and just seek out the aphids." When it's fully grown, the lettuce is packed into clamshell packages with the roots still attached. Gabrielsen says the lettuce can remain fresh for up to two weeks if the roots are left on and kept in water. He also boasts the lettuce is more nutritious when the roots are left on until just before the leaves are eaten. As Gabrielsen's lettuce winds up in supermarkets and at restaurants on Long Island, and vertical farming begins to serve more produce-starved urban communities, hydroponic farming is feeding global demand for healthy locally grown food, year round.

Actress Annalynne McCord is as nervous as she's ever been. The star of shows like '90210' and 'Nip Tuck,' will deliver a speech at the United Nations on Friday to help draw attention to sexual violence against women. It's a cause that holds a profound meaning to her. "I am speaking to kick off the (International Women's Day March for Gender Equality and Womens Rights.) I am a survivor of sexual assault," said McCord. For the past six years, the Georgia native has been working with anti-human trafficking organizations. Her involvement lead her to speak out out about her assault. "The biggest thing I want people to know is that I am OK. I was raped one night, but I am not tainted and I'm not damaged. I like having sex with my consensual partner when it's beautiful and it's a choice. I really want to have a conversation about this issue," said McCord. Getting the message out about all sexual violence committed against women is crucial in order to end it, adds McCord. "I really want to talk about how we need to enlist men... to use their voices to help us," said McCord. Some of the statistics are staggering: approximately 250,000 victims of sexual slavery are within the United States. The average age of getting into prostitution in the United States is 12 years old. Part of the awareness campaign is through the use of social media. "Hashtag Yes All Real Men," said McCord.

Legendary performer Sheila E. experienced the highs and lows of life as an entertainer at a very young age. The daughter of famed percussionist Pete Ecevedo spent her time in recording studios surrounded by the biggest names in Latin jazz and salsa. But the Oakland, California native also became a sexual assault victim. "I was raped," said Sheila E. The abuse was at the hands of cousins and a babysitter. Sheila E. was only five years old. "It's part of my testimony to share with people; a lot of people -especially women- feel they are the only ones, but they're not." That story and revelations about her engagement to Prince and her first love, Carlos Santana, are told by the star in her new memoir, 'The Beat of My Own Drum.' "There were times when it was a little bit challenging. As a celebrity, you try to keep your life as private as possible" said Sheila E. about the writing process. The drummer, percussionist and singer who played her first show with her father when she was five, continues to perform and couldn't be happier than when she's on stage. She's even released a new album titled 'Icon.' "I'm living glamorous and glorious," said Sheila E. Fans can watch her perform live in New York City at the Gramercy Theater on Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.

She's never been shy to tell others what she thinks, "even as a child," and Judge Judith Scheindlen isn't holding back on what she says is keeping women back. "I think that women for too long allowed other people define what their happiness and reasonable role should be," said the host of the Judge Judy show. Scheindlen took a page from her popular website, WhatWouldJudySay.com, to create her new book, 'What Would Judy Say? Be The Hero Of Your Own Story.' "In this book I want to have an honest conversation about what it really takes to get what you deserve out of life: how to define your worth and stick to it; how to find the courage to take risks–and how to build your backup plan; how to ignore the chattering classes and create your own destiny," said Scheindlen. The book, which is free, is downloadable on electronic devices at WhatWouldJudySay.com. "If you have a forty year old unmarried daughter you go ugh, but if you have a 40 year old son who is dating around, you go, he's having a good time," said Scheindlen. Her message to women is create a whole you before you let someone else define what you are. Start by establishing a way to earn a living and develop interests in music, art, dance, theater, etc. "Women are so desperate to stay in a relationship to be defined," said Scheindlen. The wife, mother and grandmother is currently in the 19th season of her hit TV courtroom show on FOX.

Tony Robbins is one of the most easily recognizable life coaches in the world. He's made a living getting people to get out their seats and get their lives moving in the right direction by helping them tackle their obstacles and address their failures. In his latest book, "Money: Master the Game," Robbins asked some of the biggest names in business --including Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn and Steve Forbes -- for the keys to financial freedom. Robbins dropped by Fox 5 to share some of those secrets, which are simpler than you might think. For starters, Robbins says, you have to know what things really cost you. Robbins says 401(k) fees are eating away at most people's hard-earned money. He gives a frightening example: If you have $100,000 and you're 35 years old and you put that money in the market at 8 percent, by age 65, if you paid 1 percent in fees, you'd have $761,000. If you paid 3 percent in fees, that same investment would total $432,000. You've lost hundreds of thousands of dollars just in fees. Robbins has partnered with America's Best 401K. The website www.showmethefees.com helps people figure out what they're paying and what their options are. Another secret: Robbins says people don't realize that you don't get rich by making a lot of money. The way to get money? Robbins says put money to work as YOUR slave and stop being the slave to money. The way to do that is COMPOUNDING. Another Robbins example: give up a night out a week and instead stay home with pizza and a beer. Take that $50 and invest it. If you invested $50 a week for the entire year, earning 10 percent over 30 years, would turn into half a million dollars. Don't have any money invested yet? Robbins has two words of advice: get started. --ALISON MORRIS

A luxury florist based in New York City is promising real roses that last over a year, and arrive as perfect as when they were first plucked. They even smell fantastic, and you don't have to do a thing to keep them alive. Sound too good to be true? Sunny Chadha and Seema Bansal say eternity roses are a reality with their brand, Venus et Fleur. It all started when the two were first dating. Sunny and Seema were living in different cities, and it was Valentine's Day. He did a bit of research and found a luxury florist, to send Seema roses. But what they sent was nothing like what he thought he was sending. That disappointment led the couple to come up with Venus et Fleur. They wanted high-end flowers that would leave a lasting impression, so they created eternity roses that live 51 weeks longer than most others. Seema says you just need to take care of them properly. And there isn't much to their care. Don't water, pluck or clean them. She advises keeping them away from sunlight, heat and humidity. So how do they do it? Seema says the roses are real roses, grown in Ecuador, which are cut at their most peak and perfect state. They're then treated in a proprietary formula--she'll only say that formula is wax-based. After they're treated they can be dyed any color. Venus et Fleur offers 18 options and can custom dye their roses to match any Pantone shade. Seema came up with the design, tying fashion and luxury into their florals. She wanted it to be a Parisian product, so she went with a hatbox style of packaging and a French name. And the roses are a hit. Seema and Sunny launched in New York in August of 2015, fully funding Venus et Fleur themselves. Just six months later, on Valentine's Day, they completely sold out after the Kardashians posted two of their boxes. Their entire company was shocked when Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian posted photos of Venus et Fleur arrangements within 15 minutes of each other. Their remaining flowers were all gone that day. Since then, their customer base has grown to 7,000 plus, including singer Jesse James Decker and actress Shay Mitchell. They've even made a custom 'Major Key' for DJ Khaled. Venus et Fleur can make custom arrangements for any occasion: a heart or a number for an anniversary, or someone's initial. They even wrote Fox 5 in an arrangement of blue and red roses. Custom Grandiose arrangements like DJ Khaled's Major Key start at $1,499. Do a single eternity rose for $39 or a box of 9 mini eternity roses for $79. Small boxes start at $299 for 12-16 full-sized eternity roses, in their signature hat box. That box serves two purposes. Seema loves how the roses are the first thing you see, because they pop right out of the box. Sunny points out how they don't shift in transit, leaving, as they hoped, a lasting impression. Venus et Fleur also does boxes of traditional roses that last about a week starting at $159. www.venusetfleur.com --ALISON MORRIS

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - For people who have pet dogs who are excited and anxious, the problem often lies in the owner and not the dog, says TV host and 'dog whisperer' Cesar Millan. "It's the human behind the dog that makes the dog that way," said the host of 'Cesar 911.' An overly excited dog, one that can be difficult to calm down when someone rings the bell or comes inside, or even one that bites, needs to be handled with a relaxed state of mind. "It's a big production to open the door in America," said Millan. "If I don't help the humans understand– we don't have problems with dogs and breeds—we have a problem with a society that is not educated. Your own energy can trigger a dog to bite no matter what breed it is," said Millan. Millan adds that dogs don't know what you do for a living, they only know the energy you exhibit. "Dogs don't follow unstable pack leaders, only humans do," said Millan. Learn more from Millan and catch him in action this Friday at 9 p.m. on Nat Geo in season two of 'Cesar 911.'
