Why do we keep clutter?

Did you know that keeping clutter is actually a sign of control?

Although a cluttered environment may appear chaotic and unorganised and a raise stress levels, there is a method to it. A cluttered environment is actually a sign of someone controlling their own environment, and its usually caused when we feel like we are not in control. You see it is actually a choice we make to keep the clutter and not clear it, all those excuses we come up with:

I don’t have time
I don’t know where to start
I’m overwhelmed with it
I will never be tidy and organised
There is no point as it just gets messy again

These are all acts of self sabotage. Our brain tells us these things to keep us in our comfort zones, where we feel safe and protected and in control. But we can do something about this. Depending on how you feel you can go for the full immersion and clear out your tack room and get it organised in one hit or if you feel that, that is too overwhelming then do it gradually bit by bit. Check out our 21 day systemif you need a guide on how to do this. It can be hard to let go of things especially if they make us feel safe, so take your time and go slowly.

You can also do a few other things to help you too, set up a vision board of your dream tack room, you can get apps for this or a Pintrest board works well, you can even just drag images onto a word document and print it out.
Pop this somewhere visible where you see it regularly and also take a photo of it and put it as your phone lock screen and background.

By doing this you not only motivate yourself everytime you look at it, but it also becomes your new normal for how your tack room should look, this will help to beat the overwhelm and fear around tidying and organising, because your subconscious will accept this new image as reality and not try to sabotage you anymore.

If you are struggling with overwhelm and clutter in your tack room try these few things to help you change your thinking and start creating the tack room of your dreams. Imagine how good it will feel when that Pintrest board becomes reality and you have an amazing tack room that lifts your mood and really inspires you.
