Try ditching the electronics first, then go outside and sit somewhere in the shade.
Then get comfortable and just relax. Don't look at anything in particular. Let your breathing become regular and steady and calm your body into utter stillness.
Breathe in the aromas, feel the wind, the ground, the shade, see the landscape, but don't think about them: it will be hard at first, but with luck they will soon simply be there.
Keep doing it until it you realize you don't now how long you've sat there or when you last had a conscious thought.
That's part of the training I was put through as a child by my Apache grandmother. It worked pretty well for me.

Walking through some neighborhoods in the evening may not help to lower stress.
