My boyfriend and I of 6 years broke up yesterday?

Unfortunately, this was probably a long time in the making if things were rocky. I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough time, but this goes to show that time doesn't necessarily mean the relationship is solid. Rather, time alone isn't a good reason to stay together in a relationship.
If you look at it from the more positive side, he could've spent a longer time with you and broken up, making the situation worse. Then more of life would be waisted by a relationship that was satisfying both parties.
By breaking up now, you can find someone else (once you get over him... you don't want a rebound relationship).
1.) Take some time to yourself for a bit. I'm sure you are feeling lonely, but it will probably only make you feel more lonely if you jump into another relationship right away as a rebound. Sure, they may work, but everything I've seen points to them failing often.
2.) Distance yourself from him. To get over him, you are not going to want to keep contacting him for a bit... until you are mentally over him. As of writing this, it sounds like you are a bit devastated, so once you gather your thoughts / cry it out / talk to friends and vent, I would start to distance from him.
3.) Rely on friends for a bit and realize that you are not alone. You are not alone! I bet you have a support network via friends and such that would be willing to help you out. This feeling of loneliness will subside, and once you are actually ready to go back to dating world again, you can.
For now though, have your period of grieving. I'm sure it was pretty hard.1
It wasn't meant to be. He wasn't happy0
