Clarify question and: Your question is so general it is difficult to give a specific answer - exercise = increase adrenaline output (arousal hormone) during and increased serotonin levels (quieting) afterwards; also increased metabolic rate, increased carbohydrate use, increased muscle activity during exercise.
