Nationally, the average Brit will spend a total of five years and five months of their lives doing admin, according to a study. 

Nick Shaw, a spokesperson for Brightpearl, said: "The amount of admin we have to deal with in all aspects of our lives is immense.

"And while we’re only too aware of all the bits and pieces we need to sort on a daily basis, the lifetime figure is staggering and really shows just how much it dominates both our home and work lives.

“Just imagine all the things you could get done if you didn’t have a seemingly endless amount of admin to get though.”
