I've tried relaxing each muscle group, deep breathing, turning my clock away. Nothing works!
Any other thoughts?

one of the deep breathing techniques that I've used involves counting the breath, but only up to ten, then starting the count over (there's no 'number' to achieve, it's just used as a focus). you can also use a sound to focus on during the breath as well (that's where the chanting of 'om' comes from).

Those of you with real suggestions, I appreciate it

Bach's Rescue Remedy is amazing as well. I'm hesitant to recommend it though because I haven't officially confirmed it's gluten-free status. The ingredients are flower essences and alcohol. You just spray it on your tounge. Sounds weird but it really calms the mind. You can find that at a health food store as well.
Another thing you might try is completely unplugging everything in your room. Or get a meditation c.d. Or play calming music. Or do all of the above
