Sometimes are moods and emotions can be inconsistent: high-spirited one moment and gloomy the next. They can get in the way of our relationship with God and how we go about our day.
However, inspirational music and contemplative prayer can really have an effect on outlook. It's called Mindfulness; a technique which brings greater peace, self-awareness and calm.
