How to travel comfortably during your next long-haul flight

People call me crazy, but I actually love long-distance flights. Growing up flying back and forth between Korea and the United States, I’ve become accustomed to 12- or 14-hour flights and use that time to unwind and recharge for the trip ahead.

However, not all long-distance flying is created equal, and there are some ways to make your next in-flight experience even better. Here are some of my tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way:

Best Planners to Keep You Organized in 2017

Anyone who works with me knows that I’m a sucker for to-do lists. They help me stay organized and prioritize my to-dos, and in a fast-paced field like PR, that’s incredibly important.

Thankfully, there are a ton of really neat planners to choose from. Below are a few of my recommendations on planners to help you stay focused and organized this year:
