This month at work, we are being given physical and mental challenges to help us get into the spring spirit and keep us healthy and active. Things like, trying out a new recipe, drinking 8 glasses of water a day, wearing a step counter, and taking a break from our desks.

I’ve been doing pretty well with the physical stuff and the food-related tasks. But there’s a couple that I’ve been resisting and I thought I would do them for this week’s episode of Tiny Bites, for you guys, as a push for myself. The challenge in particular that I’ve been resisting is writing down three things that I’m grateful for every day of the week. So, here’s my gratitude list!

Press play below to listen to this week’s episode.

Fact check: in my fun fact, when I said our small intestine can be stretched to the size of a football field, I meant our gut wall (epithelium) membrane can be stretched to the size of a tennis court. This is what happens when I try working from memory.


What are you grateful for today? Let me know in the comments!

    Hahaha I love your side note on correct anatomy 😉 I’m the same way – I HAVE to correct myself when I’m wrong about a fact.

      Haha I had to! It would have really bothered me if I didn’t. 😂

    This was such a lovely, uplifting podcast episode, Britt. 🙂 What a great idea that your workplace is giving you spring challenges! I’ve never heard of companies doing that. I, too, am SO grateful for my love of reading and more generally, being literate and educated. When I think about the many people around the world who have never had access to even the most basic education, it makes me incredibly sad. I feel that reading, acquiring new knowledge and exploring new ideas are some of the most important things in my life. We are very similar (once again) on that front!

    As for what I’m more specifically grateful this week – some alone time! Mr SLE is in Singapore for the week on a work trip and while I was pretty teary when I had to say goodbye, I’ve actually enjoyed being on my own. I’m also grateful that the experience is testing out my ongoing anxiety about the welfare of the people I love and allowing me to become more comfortable with the uncomfortable emotions that come up when things feel completely out of my control.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Britt!!

      Thanks, Lisa! I also have some alone time in my future. Mr. TA is going on a work trip to Toronto next week. I hope your week alone is a good experience for you. I used to be severe anxiety when I was alone (think checking all my closets and corners of the apartment before I could go to sleep). It’s interesting how anxiety manifests in different ways for similar situations.

    Hey! I'm Britt. I write about living a tiny, simple, intentional life. Because life doesn't need to be lived big.
