according to google, I'm facing Insomnia because if I go to bed by 10:30, I may or may not get a little sleepy by 1:00. I have tried everything like exercising more often, not sleeping in the day, I've completely cut down caffeine ever since I came in bhakti etc. but nothing seems to work!
I know this doesn't sound like a spiritual question but the problem is, that because I am not able to sleep, waking up at 6:00 am only is a challenge for me and thus I can only chant 2 rounds!
(by 7:00, I have to go out and by 8:00 I have my classes and the rest of the day is spent in taking classes of piano, running, studying maths and the rest of the time I read spiritual books ((not the best routine I know)) plus after my classes alot is left in my mind thus chanting goes really bad)
I really want to wake up at 5:00 am but since I'm in the start of teenage I need at least 8 hour sleep (according to my mom) so I really don't know what to do about this insomnia because everyone else is asking me to change my alarm to 7:30 but that makes it worse! I won't be able to chant! So, I thought that devotees on this forum might help.
