Being organized can help you feel happier, healthier, and more relaxed, while disorganization can lead to an increased stress level and depression. Clutter leads to heightened stress levels. So, not only is decluttering office spaces and storage rooms a relaxing task, but it can also provide a better understanding of inventory and space requirements.
When you prioritize organization, you give yourself time to focus on what really matters, like your daily schedule and tasks. This allows you to concentrate on what needs to be completed that day, instead of where you put the tools and materials you need to finish the items on your to-do list.
Organization creates a calm mind which brings answers to the forefront of a problem. Here at The Westbury Senior Living, Plant Operations is focusing on lowering our stress with better organization to create improved productivity.
A task I perform to stay organized is starting my day with a walk-around, checking cleaning closets, dryer lint traps and logs, freezer, and fridge temps, followed by checking t-stats.
When my physical space is organized, I feel like I’m in control of how my day is going to be. If my yesterday ended in control, that is usually how my today is going to go.
Anything that's not in its place, stuff that needs storage, paperwork that needs to be uploaded and put away all cause me stress.
No matter what your job or occupation, the time spent managing your workspace and work area will pay off greatly with reduced anxiety and greater yield.
