Christine Koh


I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative. I'm the founder + editor of Boston Mamas, co-author of Minimalist Parenting, co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and creative director at Women Online. Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

Parallel Work & Play


When it comes to organization, some folks are wed to digital solutions, some to paper, and some dabble in both. If you find yourself in either of the two latter categories, check out the BusyBodyBook grid organizer.

This spiral bound weekly planner features five blank columns for each day of the week, allowing you to fill in and see five schedules (e.g., family members) or activities/projects (e.g., academic subjects, work projects, personal goals) in parallel (click here to see the layout). Four chic cover styles are available: the academic year (Aug. ’07 – Sept. ’08) in Dots (shown) and Stripes, and the calendar year (Jan. – Dec. ’08) in Zigzag and Brown.
As a busy mom and wife who wears three professional hats, I periodically feel gripped with panic unless I can lay out household and professional to do’s visually. The BusyBodyBook offers a simple and stylish way to do just that; now I just need to find a way to bump one of the work columns to be dedicated to self-care.
