Sleep is as important to the human body as food, that is why it is recommended to sleep for 7 to 8 hours every night because lack of sleep weakens the body internally and increases the risk of various diseases. .

Have you ever wondered how many days a human can stay awake without sleeping? Most likely the answer would be 2 or 3 days at the most because for a normal human being awake for more than 3 days continuously would be detrimental to his health. can

But there are some people in the world who set something apart from the world, one of them is a man named Robert Macdonald, who made the world record for the longest continuous waking hours.

You will be surprised to know that Robert McDonald has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for staying awake for 19 consecutive days.

According to Guinness World Records, in 1986, Robert McDonald surprised everyone by staying awake for 453 hours and 40 minutes (that’s 18 days, 21 hours and 40 minutes).

Robert Macdonald has achieved this amazing feat and earned the title of the person who has been awake for the longest time.

However, after Robert Macdonald’s record, in 1997, Guinness World Records withdrew from monitoring the longest wakefulness record.

Guinness World Records said, “We no longer monitor such records due to the dangers associated with sleep deprivation. We don’t think anyone will be able to break McDonald’s record.”
