Kalen Allen (The Ellen DeGeneres Show) Sees Kindness in Colors
Show Notes Transcript

The Ellen DeGeneres Show's Kalen Allen discusses kindness in the entertainment industry, the kindest celebrities in the business, the importance of taking time for yourself, doing the work to be on the right side of history and way more.

Kalen Allen is an actor, producer, singer and TV personality. The world first fell in love with his bright personality after he went viral with his Kalen Reacts videos. In 2018, they even caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who in turn invited him to appear on the show. Eventually Kalen began producing content for Ellen and now he holds a regular guest post on The Ellen Show. This ray of sunshine wears many hats (wide-brimmed usually). He's worked as a correspondent on glittering red carpets, acted as a judge on the Food Network, appeared in the Seth Rogen's HBO film An American Pickle, made his music debut with his star-studded holiday album "For Christmas Sake!" and, of course, entertained millions upon millions of people through his digital content.

Kalen has a huge place in his heart for charity, supporting The Point Foundation, which empowers aspiring LGBTQ+ individuals to achieve their full academic and leadership potential.

I had the most fun talking with Kalen about his rise to fame, working on Ellen, the importance of slowing down and taking breaks and so much more.

So I'm what you might call an indecisive person... so when I'm confronted with decisions, especially major ones that affect the course of my life, I can get paralyzed. I can go into a SPIRAL. I was walking the other day as I do every day and thinking of something that's been weighing on my mind and I literally stopped and realized. Wait. Nobody's forcing me to make this decision right now. I think I can forget that, when I have these big time sensitive decisions with a deadline approaching. I get so wrapped up in the I WANT TO DECIDE ON THIS ASAP... instead of thinking I NEED TO take a beat. Unless it's an extreme situation, many times decisions aren't sooo time sensitive that you can't take a moment to breathe. So today's kindness tip of the week is... when you are making a decision take a moment to check in and listen to your mind. When we slow down and stop, a lot of the time the answer comes much more easily and is much clearer than we think.
