Travel is time-consuming, stressful, and at times downright uncomfortable. We are always looking for ways to improve our travels, especially frequently traveling business professionals.

An article on the New York Times listed a few key ways to make travel a little easier. Whether a frequent flyer or road-tripper, these tips are guaranteed to make your next trip far more seamless.

Bring a portable charger

At some airports, outlets are far and few between. When you’re using your phone’s GPS in a car, it can eat through your battery. Even at the office, when your phone is running on low, a portable charger can make all the difference. You could run into your local drug store to pick one up, or you could stop by an electronic store for a heavy-duty alternative with several outlets. Some you can charge by plugging into computers, some you can charge by plugging into outlets, and others are solar.

Purchase noise-canceling headphones

Noise-canceling headphones make all the difference on flights. You can drown out airplane noise with music or television, or simply make the sound of the engine and screaming children considerably less. Noise-canceling headphones are also great for catching sleep in your hotel room.

Wear an Eye Mask

An eye mask is perfect for napping on a flight, or getting some sleep in a new timezone. They keep things dark and comfortable so you can hopefully sleep longer.
