On Sept. 8, Candace Cameron Bure sat down with the Salvation Army Midland Division to talk about a plethora of things, with one of the biggest things being how exercise has saved her.

She said she feels “stronger at 45 than I did when I was 20 years old. It’s just every time you get stronger, or I see my muscles from doing more pushups, it keeps me going to want to do more and just keep that up.”

She continued, “Really another big part why fitness is important for me is it’s so beneficial to my mental health. I juggle, as we all do, a lot of plates. I not only juggle my family but also work in a lot of different capacities. It can get really difficult. The travel can get strenuous as well. I need to keep my mental health clear.”

Bure talked about how since her three kids are all grown up now, she’s finally officially hit the empty nest part of her life. She said, “I have just entered the season of being an empty nester. I actually was an empty nester before the pandemic started.”

She added that they all talk a lot since they’re such a close family, but it’s still different. “It’s just weird not to have my kids at home anymore.”

It’s good that she continues to find ways to keep herself both busy, and clear-minded while so many big changes are happening.
