Yes, meditation is an amazing practice to help you deal with stress and Anxiety. The act of meditation, when done long enough changes your brain waves, shrinks your Amygdala ( the part of the brain involved with fear), and teaches you to be an observer of your thoughts and emotions instead of being consumed by them. I know meditation can seem like a daunting task, but it is an important reminder to remember how we perceive things in our minds, matters. So if we see meditation as a daunting task and keep telling ourselves this, then well, it will be a daunting task. But if we allow ourselves to get excited and change that story to one of "I am so grateful to be doing this task. It is going to bring me great peace and joy". And just like it takes a while to get into working out, it takes a while to get into working out your brain too.
I would start with Headspace if you have no idea where to start. I also lead meditations, so you can chat with me further if you are interested.
