Certaintly, don't expect too much from it at the start though. This pressure will probably lead to more anxiety because meditation is hard work. I first tried to meditate but didn't really have the proper tools, I know thoroughly enjoy my meditating practise incororated into my vinyasa yoga. After a hard workout, releasing toxins from my body I am able to clearly concentrate on my mind.
It has given me lots of benefits like not juding myself too harshly, a greater awareness to not engage with my anxiety. I am very much a stressful person and have thoroughly enjoyed my yoga practise help me in understanding where stress lies in my life.
I would defintely suggest to try yoga in dealing with your stress issues, and calming your mind. Just make sure you find the right yoga teacher for you.
