Gratitude can create healthy habits that help clients cope with several mental health challenges. Gratitude provides balance to negative thoughts and feelings, so a client can benefit from learning about gratitude and the types of exercises they can use to boost gratitude and mindfulness practices.

Teaching a client how to practice gratitude exercises helps them learn how to acknowledge and appreciate the good parts of their life, which can provide balance during tough times. Gratitude and mindfulness practices help reduce stress, negative thoughts, and challenging emotions that may prevent clients from feeling secure and grounded.
