I think this is great. I have some friends who are put off by the gratitude thing - perhaps seeing it as self-righteous or holier-than-thou. Or perhaps that gratitude requires us to do something - compels us to some action. I'm not sure I agree with that.
Yet it appears that practicing gratitude can reduce stress and help us focus on the positive rather than the negative. It doesn't surprise me that our brains focus on the negative and threats.

So I do think about the things I'm grateful for - a lot. I have a great deal to appreciate in my life.
Maybe it's the Ukrainian/Eastern European in me - whatever may be going on, I know it could be so much worse!
So I like reading about the people and things people are grateful for. Everything from shoes to schools to children and health. I'm grateful for science - that we can study this world and try to make sense of what's going on. I'm grateful for good books. I'm grateful that when our p.c. has been breaking recently - I know enough that I can open it up and install a new fan.
