Office Colour Temperature: will I be less tired if the room's fluorescent lamps in the ceiling were daylight balanced to 5500K?

Right now, the fluorescent lamps in the office have that pukey green tint.
No scientific data, but I think because of the lack of warmth in the lights, it is one of the factors contributing to my fatigue—affecting my productivity. I think if the lights were warmer and closer to the colour temperature of the sun, then I wouldn't fall asleep as much. Am I correct or does the colour temperature in a room not matter at all?
If it does matter, then what are my options to filter the fluorescent lamps to daylight? What about LEDs?
