Lets Be Honest Before We Start Pretending

Nov 2, 2020

As a leader, self-care is a non-negotiable. We can’t contribute to others if we are not taking care of ourselves, and sleep is one of the most important components of that. It affects us in our day to day action. 


If you ask my clients, we have all talked about self-care and sleep at one point or another.  I am really passionate about this subject because there was a time in my life that I began really unhealthy sleep habits and kept pushing through.  You’ve heard “sleep is overrated”, “you can sleep when you are dead”, well I made up a self-limiting belief that if I didn’t keep pushing through, producing more, than I wasn’t really a leader!  Um, what??!!!  I’m here to tell you right here, right now, that is complete baloney.  And the lack of sleep contributed to some pretty serious health problems, that I got to take on.  I promise when you take care of you, let your body rejuvenate, you will have all the time you need.


Today our guest is Dr. Andrea Matsumura and she is going to assist us in demystifying “daylight savings”, share with us some amazing sleep practices, and assist us with staying healthy during this pandemic.  Dr. Andrea Matsumura was born in San Antonio Texas and attended the University of Texas health science Center in San Antonio for medical school. She had a desire to explore and thought she was an east coaster for sure. Little did she know when she did an externship as a fourth-year medical student in Oregon that she would fall in love with the West Coast and all things involving the outdoors. She quickly switched gears and ended up finishing her internal medicine residency in Portland Oregon.


She worked as a hospitalist for a few years and moved into the outpatient care setting as a primary care physician. It was there that her spark for the love of sleep medicine started. While trying to manage chronic medical conditions she quickly realized that sleep is the juggernaut for wellness.  She went on to complete a fellowship in sleep medicine at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU).


Dr. Matsumura describes herself as a holistic sleep medicine physician and enjoys public speaking on all things sleep.  Sleep is a vital sign that has yet to be discovered as the key for how everything else is managed in one’s life.
