What should I do when my brain is devoid of thoughts?

Okay, so sometimes I just stop thinking, I just literally have nothing in my mind. In general I don’t mind it so much but when this happens during a conversation it’s annoying, I don’t want to make the other person talk to themselves but I literally have no idea what to think. Lately I’ve been obsessing over it so much and end up thinking about not thinking anything and I’m stressing myself out to no ends. Has anyone else experienced this or have any advice on how to stimulate a healthy train of thought? 

Peace and thanks in advance

Happens to me all the time man, especially within conversations. The thing that frusterates me the absolute most is when a topic that I have been reading about or studying comes up in a conversation and all of the shit I’ve learned is in vein when I can’t recall any of it. Its like I should be able to talk for days about something but in the moment nothing comes to my mind and I end up just putting a dead end in the converation. I’ve been heavily into nootropics and substances which supposedly increase mental clarity and lucidity to counter this issue but I havent seen much improvment. 

I’ve been thinking lately the only way to really get around this problem is to practice as much as you can. The more you talk, the more your mind will wire itself to pump out thoughts and words. It makes sense because the more that certain neurons fire, the more easily they fire in the future. So as hard as It is to do, If you just consciously attempt to fill your mind with as many thoughts, ideas and theories as you can as well as attempt to talk to as many people with as much articulation as possible then I think eventually it will get easier and easier.

I’ve guess I’ve come to that realisation a few times, but just constantly trying is exhausting as hell, I guess we’ll get there.

Thanks for the reply dude!
