Concentration levels peak around three hours after we have woken up, so it’s best to save the most taxing jobs of the day at work for around 9.45am.

Snack O’clock comes most frequently at 3.30pm when we are starting to lag at work, and 8.15pm when we are relaxing in front of the TV, so this is the best time to show willpower.
