The objective of meditation is to slow down and stop.
If your physical condition allows you, you might want to do a bit of sport. I found out that running twice or three times a week helped me a great deal with managing my stress.

What is the goal of my life?
How can I achieve that?
The same question was asked to Venerable Sumanasara (a Sri Lankan Theravada monk residing in Tokyo). He answered something like: "There is no such thing as a goal in life. Just live."
I guess the idea is to live day by day according to the dhamma. The monk also said that if troubles will occur, they just will occur. Worrying now will not change anything (except making you suffer). You'll think about it when it happens. And if you keep a calm mind, when troubles will occur, you will be able to make the right choices.
