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


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 Castlewood 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 cleaning up my work room and sweeping at the end of each day. This allows for a 100% start tomorrow. I also go through my desk weekly and check my filing system.

When my physical space is organized, I'm at peace. It helps me stay focused and streamlined to finish work efficiently.


My inventory system and storage cause me to feel stressed. I'm currently working to get a proper inventory system. Also, storage is a huge problem in our community; we are trying to downscale the excess items.


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.
