Journaling is arguably a national pastime. Why are we telling you about National Notebook Day? Journaling can become heirlooms, ways to remember, and help provide mental clarity.

Our lives are filled with knowledge and insight, and that information is quickly forgotten. Journaling can provide a way to understand our past, present, and future. Documenting our joys, wins, sadness, grief, relationships, and lives can help us clear our minds. Journaling is a way to shed light on achieving goals and relationships. Journaling can help you understand yourself.

Below are a few reasons we think are important to journal:

Journals enable personal growth.

No matter what we write or how often, it’s hard to not reflect and grow from our entries. Journaling is a powerful tool as it can help achieve goals, reflection and growth, and developing as a person. You should eventually see yourself growing as a person.

Tracking your overall development.

Life happens fast. Without finding a way to stop and look around, we don’t see the step-by-step process we’re making in our own lives. Have you ever stopped in the middle of the day and wondered how you got where you are? Journaling can help you find that path.

Journaling helps you better connect with your values, emotions, and goals.

Writing what you believe in, why you think it, and how you feel about it, you can better understand your relationship to your goals, values, and emotions. If you’re in a situation where you feel stuck, you can journal for a few days or a week and then review what you wrote, if you’re honest when you write, you’ll see the issues when you consider your entries.

Journals can improve your mental clarity, help you solve problems, and improve your overall focus.

Clearing mental clutter is something I think we all strive for. Whenever you have a problem, and you write about it in your journal, you are transferring the problem to paper instead of keeping it in your head. It helps you better focus and reason your tasks out, which we think is a necessary and useful skill to have.

FOR OUR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIESInformation Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Cache Valley Women’s Center remains committed to providing high-quality and compassionate care while ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. As our knowledge of COVID-19 grows, we look at everything we can do to keep our communities healthy. This requires frequent updating and revising of our policies.

Patients are allowed to bring ONE person to ALL visits.


  • This person needs to be over the age of 18 or a newborn baby in a carrier.
  • Please make arrangements before your appointment (this includes walk in visits for any blood work being done) for your children who are under 18.

Although masks are no longer required, they are still encouraged during your visit—especially for those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that anyone experiencing flu like symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell, or muscle aches and pains to please call and reschedule your appointment. For those who have tested positive for Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment 14 days out from your first day of symptoms. If you still have symptoms at that time, you will be asked to wear a mask to your appointment, regardless of vaccination status.

We are continuing to follow social distancing guidelines. If our waiting room exceeds the amount we feel comfortable with at any time, you may be asked to wait in your car and we will text or call you when we have a room ready for you. Thank you for being so patient and understanding with our many changes in policies. Our main concern is always the safety of our patients and staff and we will do our best to keep everyone healthy, happy, and comfortable while in our office.

We will continue to exercise caution and encourage best practices for the safety of our patients and staff. There will be hand sanitizer readily available in all areas and frequent and proper hand washing. We will also continue to clean and sanitize our waiting room, exam rooms, checkout area, and other patient care areas. Essential PPE and masks will still be available for our patients upon request.

Please do not hesitate to call our office at (435) 753-9999 with any additional questions or concerns. We truly appreciate you and your patience with us during this time.
