Overthinking -A tornado inside the head

There are many people who tend to over-think about things that have already happened or that have not yet happened. Many have described over-thinking being similarly to a tornado spinning inside their head. Escaping from this tornado can be very difficult and challenging. Even I overthink at times too. However I do know someone who is constantly worried and thinks too much and this has been affecting him badly.  Do you know people who are over-thinkers?

I am probably in-between. I try not to think of things I know will stress me out.

@Nawsheen you are right. Even many physical problems are results of emotional and psychological disorders.

@Nawsheen yes right. Why to think about something which has either never happened or who knows it's going to happen in future

A famous psychiatrist called this "imagination on fire." When I over-think, I remember that phrase and stop the over-thinking.

Yes I know such people. Even after explaining them everything, they again go back and stop at the same point..and worry about certain things .. difficult to tackle such people

Very difficult to convince them too. They seem to be stuck with only one thought. You are right. It is very difficult to tackle them. They are also very stressed and just talk about the same thing over and over again
