Candace Cameron Bure Shares How God and Fitness Help Her Deal With Depression

Candace Cameron Bure knows the importance of mental health.

The Fuller House star shared how staying active helps her deal with depression as she juggles motherhood and her career. Bure, 45, said that she has loved her fitness journey, expressing, “I feel 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. Really another big part why fitness is important for me is it’s so beneficial to my mental health,” she told The Salvation Army Midland Division. “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.”

“I need to keep my mental health clear. Just sweating that out and all those endorphins really help me a lot. I notice a huge difference when I don’t exercise, how much it can affect me mentally and kind of deal with depression,” she continued. “That’s why I keep going. There are a lot of benefits I get. My mind is most important, and exercise definitely helps that.”

The mother-of-three also touched on becoming an empty nester, as her children — daughter Natasha, 23, and sons Lev, 21, and Maksim, 19 — have all left for school.
