Burn the candle at both ends

Burn the candle at both ends If you burn the candle at both ends, you are staying up late
and getting up early.

Example:
"She was exhausted. She'd been burning the candle at both ends
for months, working late, and getting up early ro revise for her exams."

What do you think?
