The positive consequences of exercise; what a single exercise session does to your body according to the NY Times
During the Covid19 lockdown, exercise became a common activity many of us did to keep busy, stay fit, and avoid weight gain from being sedentary.
Our routines were affected greatly, and many of us walked outside more, rode bicycles, or attempted to buy one creating a strange bicycle shortage and as the weather warmed, many of us ran outside as well.
As fewer cars were on the road, more people experienced better air to breathe while exercising, and for those riding bicycles or running, fewer cars meant a safer exercise experience.
Recently, the NY Times reported on a new study that shows the changes your body experiences while doing just one exercise session. Regular exercise is very important for our overall wellbeing and according to the NY Times, even one session can be helpful which is a good reason to exercise now.

A Single Session of Exercise Alters 9,815 Molecules in Our Blood
The extensive molecular changes that occur during and after working out underscore how consequential activity is for our bodies and health.
By Gretchen Reynolds Published June 10, 2020When we exercise, the levels of thousands of substances in our bloodstream rise and drop, according to an eye-opening new study of the immediate, interior impacts of working out. The study is the most comprehensive cataloging to date of the molecular changes that occur during and after exercise and underscores how consequential activity — and inactivity — may be for our bodies and health.
Already, of course, we have reams of evidence that exercise alters our metabolisms, muscles, genes, immune responses, hearts, stamina and almost every other organ and biological system within us. But only in recent years, with the development of sophisticated new techniques for counting and typing the thousands upon thousands of different molecules within us, have scientists been able to quantify more of the substances and steps involved in those processes.
