Finally, it’s important to stay active but you know that overdoing anything can have negative effects. So, do the things in a perfect amount and not more than necessary. Overworking and over exercising may cause severe neck pain. You can also consult with doctor that how much you need to exercise actually. Then you’ll get a clear idea about activeness.
