To be healthy and strong

Considering the weather conditions in winter, people should pay attention to the features of the season. Due to the change in dust particles in the air, experts recommend to wear a medical mask, to comply with the requirements of personal hygiene, and to keep the distance of 2 meters in public places to prevent the negative effects on the human body. Well-balanced diet, strict adherence to the hygiene rules, the teas made from medicinal plants growing in our country, especially from the liquorice root, strengthen the human immunity.

Alabay is our national pride

On January 7, 2022, the President of Turkmenistan held the first online meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers to discuss priority issues related to different sectors of the national economy. The scientific study of the national designs that glorify the Turkmen alabays was among the issues discussed at the meeting. To date, impressive work is underway in the museums of our country on the preservation, study and promotion of the ancient arts of the Turkmen people, as well as the specimens of carpets and felt mats with ancient gyols (patterns), such as ‘It ýatak’, ‘Tazy guýruk’, ‘Güjük yzy’ dated back to the 19th-20th centuries. As was noted, the results of the work will enhance the international prestige of the Turkmen alabay. The national features of training and breeding of the Turkmen alabays will supplement the information prepared to be included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The President of Turkmenistan emphasized the importance of the study and preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of the Turkmen people and instructed to include this area of study in the curriculum of the institutions of higher education, particularly of those, which study the humanities, and to attract both scientists and members of the Milli Gengesh to the work on protection of this heritage.

A building serves for ages, if foundation is strong

The core of the successful domestic and foreign policy put forward by the President of Turkmenistan is the preparation of highly qualified, sharp-witted, broad-minded professionals for all sectors of the national economy. As a leading country of the world, independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan attaches special attention to science and education. The Turkmen leader noted that the development of human society is linked to science and education. In the present-day Turkmen society, the President of Turkmenistan prioritizes the special tasks in science, education, professional skills and upbringing. In the scientific and philosophical work ‘The Economic Strategy of Turkmenistan: Relying on the People and in the Name of the People’, the Turkmen leader wrote, ‘The real values of modern society are not in wealth, but in people, in their education, professional skills, and productivity’. These values depend on the proper management of the education system, its suitability to society and effectiveness.

Sport is the watchword of today

At all times, every nation has made it a priority to keep the generations healthy and strong. Thus, special importance has been attached to the training of young people in national games, which have developed into modern sports. Our valiant ancestors taught young men how to ride, shoot, and wrestle from an early age. The national games helped the young men to develop such skills as endurance, agility, grip and ingenuity. The Turkmen young men rode horses and defended their Motherland at a young age.

A horse rider has a good health
