The KentRidge Senior Living Utilizes Organization to Reduce Stress and Increase Productivity

Category: Senior Living

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 KentRidge Senior Living, Plant Operations is focusing on lowering our stress with better organization to create improved productivity.

Some tasks I perform to stay organized are to keep things (i.e., equipment, supplies, etc.) consistently stored in dedicated areas. It’s a challenge to do so after each use, but it makes things easier when you can.

When my physical space is organized and free of clutter it promotes a sense of calm and control. Stress is also significantly reduced.

The workspace that causes me to feel overwhelmed is, occasionally, my desk. I hesitate a little too much throwing things away because I’m afraid that I might need it again. Every couple of weeks I just must buckle down and do a proper purge.

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.
