You don't have to walk outside...in case of bad weather, temperature is too hot, etc. All you need to do is to walk in place. My routine consists of walking 5 minutes every hour for the first week and then extending this to 2 more minutes until 10 minutes is reached.
You can walk more minutes but then you don't have too much time to do too much else!
I sometimes walk to Powwow music or rock and roll, etc. Occasionally classical!

If you're a news junkie reduce stress by cutting back on your news consumption. Unless your day job is activism or politics, chances are you already have enough on your plate to worry about. Avoid news commentary shows and opinion articles--those are just designed to get you riled up--and stick to the facts. You'll still be informed and then you can spend the rest of your spare time relaxing instead of mentally leading a march on city hall.
