Following the principles of a healthy lifestyle

In fact, staying active at any age and following the principles of a healthy lifestyle are important conditions for a happy life. Motion is the most reliable way to strengthen the health, to promote and to improve work efficiency. At the same time, an active person feels happy and cheerful. Moreover, people stimulate their appetites when they are running or walking in the fresh air. This process gives them the wonderful feelings that come from the harmony of motion and appetite. Experts say that medicines cannot replace physical activity. Thus, the President of Turkmenistan noted that people should be active at any age. The Turkmen leader considers the health of people to be the main wealth of the country and conducts great work in this sphere. The example of the President of Turkmenistan is a guide and a great school for our compatriots.

The Turkmen leader wrote in the book ‘A Horse – a Symbol of Faithfulness and Happiness’, ‘Wherever history begins, there are the horse tracks at that time’. These words demonstrate that the ‘heavenly’ horses have had a special place and significance in the life of our people throughout the glorious history. The Turkmen people considered horses to be their wings, companions on the days of hunt, and loyal friends on holidays. People created a number of proverbs, including in ‘when you wake up in the morning, see your father first, and then see your horse’, ‘a horse is the best friend of a young man’, ‘horse is an old friend’, etc.

A symbol of courage and loyalty

The Turkmen people are one of the world’s oldest peoples. The values that our brave people have given to the world during a centuries-old history are great. Throughout the glorious past, the Turkmen people have considered alabays and horses as loyal companions and friends. They treated these animals as if they were human beings. Historical sources testify to the fact that the alabays’ bravery, intelligence and loyalty deserve praise. The Turkmen Alabay book by the President of Turkmenistan contains the following sentences confirming the antiquity of the breed, ‘Dog and human are believed to have befriended 12-15 thousand years ago. Thus, any dog breed must originate from hunting dogs. Our alabays must also be hunting. Our ancestors developed this trait of the breed. They raised our alabays very intelligent. Moreover, alabays attacked wolves’.
