What should I do if I am struggling to pray isha and fajr during the Summer?

During the Summer when Maghrib and Isha are very late and Fajr is just a few hours after Isha, many people struggle with praying on time. The best solution is to pray Maghrib and then pray Isha immediately after it (before Isha has started) and then go to sleep straightaway. Otherwise you will struggle to wake for Fajr.
