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

One task I perform to stay organized is setting a routine and then following it. Things will pop up every day, but I will take each one and as they come and work them into the daily task list. If it is something listed as high priority, then that will take precedence over the general daily tasks. 

It is so much easier to tackle issues as they arise if you can start from an organized platform. I don’t like spending time trying to locate what I need to complete a task, so I do everything I can to keep my office organized and picked up.

Anytime I come to work and find a pile of junk either thrown in my office or stacked outside the door just so another area can look clean, that causes me to feel stressed. This can be either trash left by the night staff or merchandise delivered with no clear home.

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.
