As you may know by now, Inspired Magazine is a sucker for data visualization. That’s why we invited Tony Shin – a social media ninja and creative design samurai – to curate the weekly dose of infographics.

1. Fat Future of America

If there’s one thing I like, it’s fast food. I love eating McDonalds, Jack in the Box, Burger King – you name it, I love it. However, I can say I don’t always wake up the most relaxed after a night of giving into the goodness of fast food. This infograhic from Medical Coding Career Guide shows us the potential future of America. Yes, we’re overweight. I’ve accepted this a long time ago. Hopefully, the next generation and our kids won’t be. This graphic definitely pokes a little fun at Uncle Sam’s belly and shows us that if we continue at this rate – well, just don’t take this lightly.

2. The Plight of the Mustached American

If there’s one thing I’ve always wanted, it’s a mustache. I was jealous of those that could grow them. All joking aside, this infographic by H&R Block is not only timely, it’s for a great cause. It’s good to have a little extra money in our lives, so why not grow a ‘stache and join the ‘Stache Act? Imagine if we all walked up to the White House with moustaches? Ha, hilarious. Join it!

3. How Addictive is Facebook and Twitter?

This graphic popped up just recently that asks if Facebook and Twitter are as addictive as cigarettes and alcohol. It makes you take a step back for a second and start to question yourself – and as you should. As the graphic reads, of the 800+ million users, 31% check into Facebook several times a day. That’s not shocking. But what is shocking is the similar comparisons to alcohol and cigarettes. This infographic by Reuse This Bag shows us a questionnaire check test that may ask yourself just how addicted you may be. Taking a hard look now, I’m pretty darn close to saying yes.

4. Work is Murder

Do you ever find yourself working in pain or perhaps feel a bit sluggish once you start actually getting back into exercising? Well, if you do, this one’s for you. Online University shows us why work is killing us. I’ve heard it several times before, but this infographic lays down the law. Once you see why it’s killing you, and the great thing about it – the graphic gives you some tips to stay in tip-top shape. Well, at least in somewhat decent shape.
