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 VITALIA Senior Residences® at Strongsville, Plant Operations is focusing on lowering our stress with better organization to create improved productivity.
The most important thing to do to stay organized is create a space to store items until they are needed in the future. I like to purchase cardboard bins to store regularly used inventory. This makes the item easy to find, easier to see and know when inventory is low, and helps to create a space. I also utilize hooks and baskets on pegboards, so every tool has its space, and every space has a tool.
I love organization, it calms my mind. Discussing organization reminds me of my firefighter days. As a fireman you are required to return a tool to its correct location on the truck. The tool is to be stored clean, functioning, and in its proper placement, so it’s ready for the next emergency.
The idea of having excess items and unneeded things just sitting around gives me a headache.
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.
