British workers only have the energy to work five hours in the day, according to a new study.
Research by high street chemist Boots has revealed that the average employee loses around 151 minutes a day as a result of tiredness.
Brits that work nine-to-five only fully wake up 45 minutes into the day, according to the data.
Furthermore, Brit workers will take a lunch break of around 32 minutes, before hitting a lull at around 2pm.
Commenting on the findings, Boots pharmacist Angela Chalmers pointed out that diet and lifestyle changes can help reinvigorate Brits.
"Our modern-day lifestyle often means we can find it tough to stay alert during the nine-to-five and we have become a nation of slumpers as a result," she remarked.
ClickAJob chief executive Yngve Traberg maintains that attitude is a factor too, saying that "Fix the attitude and very often you fix energy problems too."
