What is the relationship between ΔH and ΔU?

ΔU is the change in energy of a system, so when ΔH is negative, then enthalpy of the products is less than that of the reactants so the exothermic reaction is energetically decreasing(?)

U refers to the potential energy of the system, and enthalpy (H) is one of the components that contributes to the overall U of a system.
