Think of nothing.

How exactly does one think of nothing? I've had doctors suggest meditating but I can't make my mind go blank. I am always thinking of something. Even when  getting a relaxing facial my mind is racing with things to do, things I haven't done, worries, and so on. Any suggestions on how to go blank?

It honestly takes practice. Concentrate on a color or a shape or something very neutral and let your mind wander for a few seconds. With some practice you'll be able to expand on it.

I was wondering if you have tried this technique at bedtime to help fall asleep when your mind won't stop thinking.   Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks :)
