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 Princeton Senior Living, Plant Operations is focusing on lowering our stress with better organization to create improved productivity.
Some tasks we perform to stay organized are resetting our shop on a weekly basis, cleaning up the whiteboard, organizing any new supplies, and cleaning up the desk.
When my physical space is organized, I can be more efficient. Finding a document, part, or tool becomes easy when everything is in its place.
Boxes cause me to feel stressed and overwhelmed. We get several deliveries each week and the clean-up of the boxes and packing material can be time consuming.
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.
