Amrit vela and long hours

This is about my wife who has been getting up for amrit vela to read bani. It’s a good thing as she’s a lot calmer in herself, more happy. But she’s also more tired. 
 

Getting up for amrit vela means 5 hours’ sleep, 2 hours for amrit vela (starts at 4am, not counting ishnaan). Then gets ready to go to work, 1hr commute. 13 hour shift. Comes home. Eat. Goes to bed. 
 

She has started nodding off when driving, and on her days off, spends most of her time sleeping to catch up. 
 

Hours are fixed. Most of her colleagues live within walking distance of her workplace. She doesn’t want to move as we live in a nice area. She eats healthily but doesn’t have time for exercise because of looking after the house. I help out with chores as much as possible. 
 

I know as she builds up her kamaii she will get stronger, less tired and able to focus more. But she’s really struggling. I don’t want to stop her from keeping amrit vela as it’s benefitted her. 
 

What else could we do or try so she’s less tired?

Tell her try from 12.30am onwards, a powerful time. Do it for around 2.5 hours or however long, and go deep into the samadhi. She’ll knock out while doing simran once she’s gone deep into it.
