1x gravel gearing suggestions

My gravel bike currently has 42 tooth chainring up front and cassette is 11-42. Is anybody doing something like 38 or 40 up front and 11-42 in back. If so, how do you like it?

where I ride itís pretty rare that I actually need the smallest cog in the rear especially since on gravel downhills Iím more conservative so Iím not blasting down them anyway.

what I do find is certainly I wouldnít mind some easier climbing gears occasionally? I know for my very long rides and long events Iím not needing top end speed anyway.

just curious what others are doing.
