There isn't anything you "should" think about. As a beginner
meditator (assuming you are), try focusing on one thing (i.e. your
breath, saying a mantra, a candle flame) Concentrating on something
like that will help your mind chatter to quiet down. This will help
put you in position where instead of actively thinking about
something, you can watch thoughts arise then simply let them go.
