As a mom-of-three, Hallmark channel's unofficial 'Christmas Queen' (though in our mind she's more than earned the title), and a New York Times best-selling author (to name only a few of her many accomplishments), it's safe to say: Bure is constantly on-the-go. And while her fast-paced schedule might change according to the day, one thing remains the same – a morning routine with a foolproof arsenal of essentials.
According to Bure, when she isn't working out 'first thing in the morning' or Instagram live-streaming her workouts with her longtime trainer, Kira Stokes (opens in new tab), there are a handful of tried-and-trusted elements that her morning routine can't be without.
From her morning matcha – in her must-have mug! – to practicing prayer and grounding herself in gratitude, here are the things Candace Cameron Bure can't wait to wake up to.
