We are all locked up inside our houses due to the coronavirus pandemic. This has also majorly changed the functioning of our households. We no longer have our house helps who would clean dishes, mop the floor or cook food for us! We are all taking care of it on our own. If you still don't have any motivation to do some house chores then here it is.

A lot of you must be hating doing all those household chores, especially mopping. Mopping or pocha requires a lot of energy but do you know it can have some amazing benefits for your overall health? Mopping not only helps you clear all the microbes and viruses from your house that can make you sick but it can also give you some great benefits. Read on to know why you should start doing pocha or mopping everyday. 

You Burn Calories

According to a study, mopping across the floor and wringing it out of the bucket makes you burn around 238 calories. To sweat out these many calories in the gym, you would need an hour on the exercise bike. Cleaning the floor is like working out and it helps you burn calories just like you do in the gym. Now that you can't hit the gym, get into cleaning your home and lose weight!
